Meet your new fall obsession! This Pumpkin Cold Foam is seriously addicting, you’ll be making it on repeat!
I love going to Starbucks but I don’t love all of the additives in their drinks. After having their Pumpkin Sweet Cream Cold Foam for the first time, I’ve been dreaming up a way to have it on hand, at home, all through the fall season.
Keeping this creamer on hand is ideal because not only is it slightly better-for-you than the coffee-shop version, but it’ll save you money.
Making pumpkin cold foam at home is very simple, you’ll only need five ingredients:
- Heavy cream - this is the base for your creamer, you can use half-and-half, whole, or 2% milk as well.
- Sweetened condensed milk - this ingredient is pretty much essential and I don’t recommend skipping or swapping it. This is what gives it that “coffee shop” flavor that you’re looking for.
- Pumpkin purée - just use some of the basic canned stuff. Be sure that you’re using pumpkin purée and not pumpkin pie filling (it has a ton of additives and it’s not safe to consume without cooking).
- Vanilla extract - for flavor.
- Pumpkin pie spice - I used this one and it was fantastic!
The process couldn’t be easier!
Simply combine all of the ingredients into a small bowl and whisk them together.
Then store in a mason jar or an airtight container.
When you’re ready to serve, simply add a few tablespoons to a small dish, use a hand frother to froth, and pour it over iced (or hot) coffee.
How to store?
To store your homemade pumpkin sweet cream cold foam, follow these steps:
Transfer the homemade coffee creamer into an airtight container or mason jar (be sure it’s clean).
Store the container in the refrigerator, toward the back, to maintain the freshness. It’ll last for about 5-7 days.
Get a hand frother: just make this investment, you won’t regret it. I found mine at Homegoods, and I thought at the time it was a silly purchase (as many of the items I purchase at Homegoods are) but I use it almost daily and couldn’t live without it. Okay, I could live, but I really love this thing for frothing COLD foam.
No frother? Vigorously whisk with a small whisk and it’ll get frothy.
Skip the frothing: if you don’t have a frother, just skip this step and vigorously shake the jar of creamer and pour a little onto your coffee. It’ll be fluffy enough without the extra frother.
How long can I store homemade coffee creamer in the fridge?
You can store homemade coffee creamer in the refrigerator safely for up to 7 days and possibly up to 14, depending on a lot of factors. If it smells or looks weird, don’t use it, throw it away. It’s not worth getting sick over.
Is this a Starbucks Sweet Cream Cold Foam copycat?
Yes, yes it is! And I think it tastes better than the real thing so give it a try!
