Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew Coffee

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.

The Best Easy Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew

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. 

Pumpkin Pie Spice: You can make your own homemade pumpkin pie spice or buy your favorite store bought brand. 

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.

Tips and Tricks for the Best Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew

  • Want your pumpkin spice cold brew to be a bit sweeter? Feel free adjust the sweetness by adding more (or less) maple syrup.
  • This recipe makes one serving. Feel free to make a double batch for two servings.
  • If you want your pumpkin cold brew to be a bit more decadent, feel free to use half and half instead of regular or non-dairy milk.

  1. So refreshing and delicious!! This recipe came in perfect timing.. I bought a milk frother the other day to make pumpkin cream cold brews at home and they didnt turn out well 🙁 I love how all I need is a blender and it all comes together so well and so EASY! I used unsweetened almond milk but I’m going to try full fat coconut milk next time! 😋 I’m so happy I found your website, thanks for these amazing yet still healthy recipes!!

  2. I love this drink for a nice afternoon pick me up! It’s the perfect taste of pumpkin without being overpowering. I’ve made it several times now. I made it today without the pumpkin purée because I forgot to buy some at the store, so I use a little bit of a banana instead and added extra pumpkin spice and it still tasted great!

  3. I finally had a chance to make this recipe this morning. 10/10 way better than at a shop & WAY cheaper! Thanks so much for helping out this tired mama!

  4. I made this with oat milk and it was wonderful! Not overly sweet like you get from chain coffee stores. I’m excited to play with flavors and amount of coffee too.

  5. I added 1 tbsp of SF French vanilla syrup because I like things sweeter and I think it tastes fantastic! Thank you for creating this recipe! I miss my pumpkin cream cold brews from Starbucks, but can’t imagine using 7 smart points on a tall! For anyone on WW, this is 2 points on green using 1% milk. 💚

  6. I absolutely loved this recipe! So much better than Starbucks! It has the perfect sweetness and pumpkin flavor! Thank you!!!

  7. This recipe is incredible! If you’re looking for a healthier pumpkin spice coffee recipe, look no further! We will be making this on repeat all season!

  8. Absolutely love this recipe! Perfect for me because I’m never ready to be done with cold brew, but love all things pumpkin.

  9. Such a fabulous and easy recipe getting me excited for the fall season and everything pumpkin during this summer heat. I love how I already had all of the ingredients listed and they are very minimal! My husband loved it too. Starbs who??

  10. This was SO good. I’m a fan of all things pumpkin in the fall and this did not disappoint. Hope to make your hot PSL version soon. Thanks for inspiring me to make new coffee drinks while continuing to be “safer at home”. Thanks for a great treat, Ashlea!

  11. Even better than the pumpkin spice cold brew, and so easy to make! Thank you for this recipe!

  12. I made a warm version of this and it was so good! The dogs were also very excited about the extra pumpkin!

  13. It’s actually not that warm anymore where I live 😉 Would it be possible to make a creamer out of everything but the coffee and then use it with hot coffee? Real pumpkin puree is just soo much better than the coffee shop flavors!

  14. Just made this today for a mid-day pick me up and wowwwww! This is perfection! Nice and light and creamy. The coffee shop version can be so heavy and sweet, and this fulfills my need for a fall treat without derailing my nutrition goals. Will keep this on my fall rotation from now on!

    • So happy to hear that Garen! I agree, the coffee shop version can be a bit too sweet for me as well. I’m so glad you liked the recipe and that you’ll be adding it to your fall rotation!
