Real Deal Pumpkin Cream for Two

the OG pumpkin cream recipe, as painstakingly accurate as possible. For the most obsessive Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew aficionados only.

Servings 2 14 oz drinks' worth


  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream chilled straight from fridge
  • 1 tbsp milk, any kind
  • 2 tbsp Starbucks brand Pumpkin Spice Sauce you have to buy this controlled substance from Ebay. I'm sorry, I don't make the rules. a 63 oz jug of contraband sauce is approx $70 shipped and can be frozen for a lifetime of authentic PSL's and PCCB's. Invest in yourself. Alternatively, you could try dating a Starbucks barista and seeing if they'd be willing to risk their employment to smuggle you a jug. Depending on how good your BJ technique is, this just might work.
  • 1.5 tbsp Starbucks brand Vanilla Syrup you can buy a 1L bottle of this for $12.95 from your local Starbucks store.
  • dash pumpkin pie spice for sprinkling on top


  1. Add all ingredients except pumpkin pie spice to a bowl.

  2. Using an electric mixer, blender, or a hand whisk and some elbow grease, whip together until mixture has thickened. In my KitchenAid it took less than a minute on high.

  3. Pour on top of your cold brew (or iced coffee of choice) and sprinkle the pumpkin pie spice on top. If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can recreate it by combining ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.
  4. Feel smug AF that you have the Real Deal Dupe and can enjoy this whenever the f*ck you want now, seasons be damned.
