This AIP and vegan Pumpkin Cold Brew is made with a lightly sweetened creamy pumpkin spice coconut milk and cold brew ice cubes and is sure to be a family friendly, caffeine-free, early fall favorite.
If you know me you know that I soak up every last day of summer and am in no rush for Fall. As a September baby, I do love Fall but I’m all about living in the moment and in this moment, it’s still summer. This Starbucks pumpkin cold brew copycat is the perfect ease into Fall. It provides the classic flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, creamy pumpkin-spiced coconut milk and ice so it’s still seasonally appropriate.
Here’s what you need for this Caffeine-free Pumpkin Cold Brew
pumpkin puree – to make your life easier you can use puree from a can, but ensure that the only ingredient is pumpkin
maple syrup – to sweeten the drink slightly
pumpkin spice – cinnamon, powdered ginger, ground cloves
sea salt – I like to add just a pinch here (and to every other recipe I create 🙂 )
unsweetened full fat coconut milk – you really need to use full fat coconut milk here for the creaminess. For Canadians, my favorites are Cha’s Organic Coconut Milk (in a can) or Thai Kitchen’s unsweetened coconut milk (in a carton)
Do I have to make the cold brew into ice cubes?
Nope! Feel free to use a caffeine-free cold brew in place of the frozen version. In this case, I’d serve it over ice before adding the pumpkin-spiced coconut milk.
Can I make this coconut free?
Though I haven’t tried myself, you could potentially make this using tigernut milk which has a naturally sweet taste.
Can I use regular coffee?
Coffee isn’t AIP elimination-stage compliant but if you’ve successfully reintroduced it, go for it.
Can I make this drink hot?
You sure can! Heat the pumpkin-spice coconut milk over the stovetop and mix into some hot dandelion-chicory tea for a warm version of this drink that’s perfect for colder weather.
