What’s in a cold pumpkin cream mousse coffee?

This frothy fall coffee drink begins with cold brew or iced coffee, which is topped with a healthy cluster of sweet pumpkin whipped cream made with pumpkin puree, condensed milk, pumpkin pie spice and heavy cream.

You can also replace the whipped cream with a nut-based dairy cream, but be aware that you won’t get a proper, fluffy whipped cream filling if you do.

Is Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam Iced Coffee good?

I’m usually not too keen on baking spices ending up in uncooked products, but I really liked it. I reduced the sweetened milk and went easy on the pumpkin pie spice, which allowed the pumpkin puree to shine in the foam. I found myself pulling tiny spoonfuls of foam out of the bowl into the fridge even after my coffee was gone. I imagine it would go well on a scoop of vanilla ice cream. In fact, I might have to pick some up later today and find out.
