Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Healthier & Cheaper Copycat

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Healthier & Cheaper Copycat

And the cool thing about this recipe is you actually don’t need any kind of fancy equipment to make it. You can just use the Mason jar, cover it up, and then shake it up, like really shake it up for a whole minute to two minutes until your arms get a nice workout. We can also do some squats over here. (laughs) And this is similar to making whipped cream, but we don’t wanna do it in the stand mixer because that’s really gonna make whipped cream, and that’s way too thick for pumpkin cream cold brew. And if you have a husband nearby doing nothing on his day off, you can get him to do some shaking too. Okay, now it’s time to actually make the pumpkin cream cold brew. So we’re going to use a tall jar like this, fill it up with ice, and you can use any cold brew that you want. Starbucks actually makes a cold brew so you can use it to actually get closer to their taste or you can actually make it at home. And we wanna leave a little bit of room up top. Now it’s time to look inside this pumpkin cream. So thick and beautiful, it has light little speckles from the pumpkin spice, and now we’re just gonna go ahead and add as much of it as you want on top of the cold brew.

All right, you can use a straw to kinda mix everything together, and let’s take a sip, you guys. (lighthearted music) It’s refreshing, but it also has like all the flavor of fall in there. And you guys, it is pretty darn close to the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew. Just finished that off, it was so good. I’m gonna show you a second version right now that’s a little bit lighter and also uses a different technique for making the cream. Instead of using heavy whipping cream, we’re going use half and half, which is basically half milk, half cream. And again, we’ll use eight ounces of the liquid. (lighthearted music) And you know the drill, similar recipe, we’re going to use some maple syrup, as much of it as you want to sweeten it. We’re going use pure pumpkin puree, about two to three tablespoons.

And instead of shaking this time, we’re actually gonna use the frother, and the frother there just makes it so much quicker to do this by hand. (electronic whirring) You can also do this with a blender if you wanted to, and you can also do with a French press, and just kinda press it down a few times until it’s nice and frothy. And that’s the key here. We just really want it to get a nice froth on it and make sure everything is well blended. And you’ll notice that the mixture will actually almost double in size. That’s how we start at eight ounces and it’ll pretty much fill up this entire Mason jar. Now we just assemble. You’re gonna add some ice cubes, some of this cold brew, and again, as much of the pumpkin cream as you’d like. All right, let’s do a taste test. (lighthearted music) Mm. It’s still really rich and creamy, and you can really taste that pumpkin spice. It’s a little bit lighter than the one that we used with heavy cream, but it’s still so good. I hope you guys enjoyed both of these versions of the pumpkin cream cold brew.

Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew costs about $5, my version only cost $1. Plus, I’m gonna show you two ways to make it. (lighthearted music) All right, so the cool thing about this recipe is that I was actually live with Kelly and Ryan making this recipe two different ways. So I’m gonna show it to you guys today the way I did it on national television. Okay, so we’re gonna start with heavy whipping cream and we’re gonna use a Mason jar, and measure about eight ounces. (lighthearted music) Next, you’re gonna add about two to three tablespoons of maple syrup, and I just pretty much eyeball this part, followed by two tablespoons of pumpkin puree. And you wanna make sure to use pumpkin puree that’s just pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling, and that’s because pumpkin pie filling actually has sugar in it and it also has some more spices in there. Finally, we’re gonna add half a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. And if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can actually just use a little bit of cinnamon, a little bit of nutmeg and some ginger.
