Pumpkin Coconut Cream Cold Brew
If you can’t get enough of the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew at Starbucks, then you’re in for a treat. This Pumpkin Coconut Cold Brew is a simple and affordable copycat that you can make at home. You’re sure to love its creamy caffination.
Creamy Pumpkin Coconut Cold Brew
Cold brew coffee is smoother, sweeter, and less acidic than hot coffee. It’s also a real treat on a hot summer day. These are all qualities that have made cold brew coffee incredibly popular in the last several years. But does this summer delight translate into a fall drink?
We think so!
Coffee shops like Starbucks and Duncan Donuts have made pumpkin cream cold brew a fall favorite. But rather than waiting in line and spending $5 on a an overly sweet version, I wanted to develop a recipe that you could easily – and cheaply – make at home.
This creamy pumpkin cream cold brew combines fresh cold press coffee, creamy coconut, smooth pumpkin puree, and warm fall spices. The result is a cold brew coffee to swoon over!
Why We Love This Creamy Pumpkin Cold Brew
- It’s Affordable. This pumpkin cold brew is affordable and made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

The flavors and sweeteners used at these coffee shops contain an eye-watering list of ingredients. By making this cold brew at home, you control exactly what’s in it. And, you can adjust the sweetness as you like.

How to Make Pumpkin Coconut Cold Brew

How to Make Cold Brew Coffee at Home
Making cold brew coffee at home is really easy, and you can be sure you’re using the best quality possible for your drink. My recommendation is to make a batch of cold brew coffee over the weekend and keep it in your fridge for the week. You can take out what you need to make your daily batch of pumpkin coconut cream cold brew!
- Coarsely Grind Your Coffee Beans
- Combine Coffee Grounds with Water in a Mason Jar
- Cover and Steep for 15-18 Hours
- Strain the Coffee Through Cheesecloth or a Coffee Filter into a Clean Jar
We think this pumpkin cream cold brew is pretty fantastic as it is, but you should always feel free to change things up to make your perfect drink. Here are some suggestions.
- Use Heavy Cream. If you don’t like coconut and aren’t dairy free, feel free to use heavy cream as a substitution.
- Use Regular Powdered Sugar. If you can’t find monk fruit powdered sugar, you can substitute regular powdered sugar. Add about half as much as the recipe calls for and taste the pumpkin cream. You can always add more sugar if you’d like.
How to Store
If you make cold brew coffee at home, it will store in the fridge for about a week. Store the pumpkin cream separately in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
