Coffee – Starbucks obviously uses Cold Brew Coffee to make this drink. You can either buy cold brew from the market or use the homemade one.
But don’t get stuck on cold brew. The best part is you can use any coffee to make this drink. Just brew a strong cup of coffee, cool it a bit, and pour over ice. It works great too.
Whipping Cream – Opt for heavy whipping cream to give that last creamy touch to your cold brew. As I told you, it just makes everything better!
Pumpkin Puree – Use my homemade Pumpkin Puree or buy canned.
Pumpkin Pie Spice – This is my favorite ingredient, and it instantly changes the tastes of this drink. You can either use the store-bought or make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice at home.
Sweetener – Sweeten it with some sugar. Coconut sugar, brown sugar, or simple granulated sugar works fine. You can even go for maple syrup or sugar-free alternatives as a sweetener. Adjust the amount according to your taste.
Vanilla Extract – This adds that perfect hint of vanilla, which makes the overall taste even better.
If you want it to be creamy, you can just add in the milk of your choice, either full cream or skim milk. You can also opt for dairy-free options such as Almond Milk, Soy Milk, Oat Milk, etc.
