If you’re a coffee-lover, you’ll probably agree that cold foam is one of the most enjoyable add-ins of the summer.
The texture is so creamy, and it tastes so good! But there’s a catch: it’s not available in many places.
If you want to enjoy this delicious fall beverage during the summer, why not just make a pumpkin spice version?
What is pumpkin spice cold foam?
It’s the time of year when pumpkin spice lattes are in full swing. You can just feel the chill in the air.
We’re well into fall, and there’s no better time to prepare for it than now. Pumpkin spice is ubiquitous during the fall. From lattes to ice cream, everything is pumpkin spice-flavored.
But what exactly is pumpkin spice cold foam?
Pumpkin spice cold foam is a take on regular cold foam and is made using low-fat milk and pumpkin spices. It creates a velvet cold foam with the perfect fall flavor.
Which ingredients are used to make this cold foam?
To make pumpkin spice cold foam at home, you’ll need just two ingredients:
- 2% fat milk
- Pumpkin spice mix
Low-fat milk is best used to create the most fluffy cold foam possible. You can use any low-fat milk you prefer.
I’ve also tried making it with whole milk, but the foam falls apart too fast and doesn’t fluffy that much.
If you prefer using dairy-free milk, you can also use this. However, I’ve noticed that cold foaming any milk-free alternative will be quite hard, and it also doesn’t hold its structure that well.
But if you foam it long enough, you might be able to create some amazing cold foam to use for your coffees!
How to make the homemade pumpkin spice mix
The homemade pumpkin spice mix is one the easiest to do and requires just a few ground spices to get started:
- 20 grams of ground cinnamon
- 10 grams of ground ginger
- 5 grams of ground cloves
- 2 grams of ground nutmeg
- 2 grams of ground black pepper
Although there are many spices, you probably have most of these spices in your kitchen cabinet.
Weight out the spices in a bowl and mix them to create the pumpkin spice mix.
After that, store it in an airtight container unit you’re ready to use it. If you have some leftovers, you can also use it to make one of the following coffee recipes:
- Pumpkin spice syrup
- Pumpkin spice latte
- Pumpkin spice mocha
- Pumpkin spice creamer
- Iced pumpkin spice latte
