You know, a Starbucks copycat but at just 2g net carbs! Still, this keto pumpkin cream cold brew is fluffy, creamy and utterly delicious. i.e. the perfect way to start dipping your toes into fall!
Keto Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew ☁️
i.e.pure cloud-like fluffy goodness
I’m going to keep this one simple, as it should be. A handful of staple pantry ingredients, whisked lightly until thickened, frothy clouds of fall goodness emerge. (Lol I know, how basic of me)(though I hear we call it cheugy nowadays)(don’t ask me how to pronounce that).
Alas, this is a fun treat that’s definitely worth the 10 minutes (tops) you’ll spend on it. A little less, even, if you use a little milk frother (this little guy is literally the best).
p.s. these metal straws are awesome (and help reduce your plastic waste, even if just a little).
The best sweeteners (for keto drinks!)
OK so sure, you can use a granulated sweetener if you don’t have anything else handy. Allulose and xylitol will dissolve completely into liquids with a little coaxing, but do note that erythritol has a tendency to stay slightly crunchy.
So trust me when I say that a liquid sweetener will work much better. This pure allulose is my absolute favorite to sweeten any type of beverage, with its biggest plus incidentally being no aftertaste whatsoever.
And… the video story!
(2g net carb!) Keto Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew
For the keto pumpkin cream
- My top tip: this is a super duper easy recipe to whip up to taste! So take advantage and do little taste tests as you go along for sweetness (and even for "pumpkinness"!).
- Add heavy whipping cream, allulose (seriously, the liquid one is the best for drinks!), vanilla extract, pumpkin spice and a pinch of salt to a medium bowl. Whisk (using an actual whisk or a little milk frother)(this little guy is literally the best) until it just begins to thicken. Make sure you keep it pourable- you know, don't turn it into whipped cream!
- Whisk in the pumpkin puree, taste for sweetness (vip!) and set aside.
- The original starbucks drink ("the og") also adds vanilla syrup to the actual cold brew, so feel free to add a touch of liquid allulose to yours and a couple teaspoons of vanilla extract (I like my cofee black, so I leave these out).
- Pour your cold brew into a glass with ice, spoon a generous amount of your pumpkin cream on top and add a light dusting of pumpkin spice to finish it all off.
