Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew Coffee that is so much better than any version you may find at a popular coffee shop. It’s a delicious and cozy fall spiced coffee drink made without any artificial sweeteners. This drink is made with real food ingredients like real pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and your favorite milk of choice.
I love the transition from August to September when everything pumpkin spice is in full force. Even though the temperature hasn’t really changed, we’re all still pretending fall is right around the corner.
The transition from summer to fall is the perfect time to start dreaming of cozy sweaters, hot apple cider, and of course everyone’s seasonal favorite – the pumpkin spice latte.

But, if you’re anything like me, the last thing you want in the afternoon is a hot pumpkin spice latte, especially when it’s still almost 100 degrees outside. That’s why this iced pumpkin spice cold brew is the perfect drink.
It’s served over ice so that you can enjoy all of your favorite pumpkin spice flavors even when it’s still warm outside.
Cold Brew Ingredients
Cold Brew Coffee: You can make your own homemade cold brew or buy your favorite. Because I like my coffee a bit on the stronger side, I like to use a cold brew concentrate.
Milk of Choice: A non-dairy milk like almond, oat, or cashew milk work great in this recipe. You can also use regular dairy milk if you prefer. The choice is totally up to you!
Pumpkin: Unlike the coffee drinks you’ll find at your local coffee shop, this version is made with real pure pumpkin puree. Because this is a drink, you won’t need much, as little pumpkin goes a long way. You can usually find canned pumpkin in the baking aisle of your grocery store. Be sure you grab pure pumpkin and not pumpkin puree.
Maple Syrup: The flavor of the maple syrup works really well with the other fall flavors in this coffee. It also blends well because the syrup is already in a liquid form. If you don’t want to use maple syrup, you could also use honey or your favorite sweetener of choice.
Vanilla Extract: A must-have in this recipe to give the drink that delicious vanilla flavor.

How to Make This Drink In Advance
If you want to prep this drink in advance, combine all of the ingredients, except the cold brew, and store in an air-tight container like a mason jar. When you are ready to make your drink, add the cold brew and the pumpkin spice mixture to a blender and blend until everything is well combined.
