Why I Love this Recipe

As soon as the fall weather hits, I start craving all things pumpkin and especially a Pumpkin Spice Latte! It’s my kryptonite, truly. This recipe uses real pumpkin puree, but you can substitute pumpkin flavored syrups if you choose, but I highly recommend making it as written the first try. It’s a real keep of a recipe for a homemade pumpkin spice latte.

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Milk, of choice
  • Pumpkin Puree, canned or homemade (but not pumpkin pie filling)
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice, homemade or store bought
  • Strong coffee or espresso
  • Whipped cream, fresh or canned
Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

How to Make

Add the milk, pumpkin, sugar, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring almost to a boil, stirring constantly – if you allow it to boil it will get thick (yuck). Whisk the mixture until it starts to froth, about 1 minute. Divide milk mixture between two mugs. Add the coffee slowly down the side so you don’t disturb the milk froth, add a squirt of whipped cream and a pinch more of the pumpkin pie spice.

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte

The easiest recipe ever for a make-at-home Pumpkin Spice Latte that uses real pumpkin, not imitation flavored syrup.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups milk any % you choose
  • 4 tablespoons pumpkin puree canned
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ cup strong coffee or espresso
  • whipped cream fresh or canned

Instructions
 

  • Add the milk, pumpkin, sugar, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice to a small sauce pan over medium-high heat. Bring almost to a boil, stirring constantly – if you allow it to boil it will get thick (yuck). Whisk the mixture until it starts to froth, about 1 minute. Divide milk mixture between two mugs. Add the coffee slowly down the side so you don’t disturb the milk froth, add a squirt of whipped cream and a pinch more of the pumpkin pie spice and enjoy.

Notes

NOTE: Keep a spoon on hand, because of the thick nature of pumpkin puree, you will want to stir the latte occasionally to keep it from getting thick at the bottom of your mug. Another Note: To get a good thick froth, you can add COLD pumpkin mixture to a large glass mason jar. Cap and shake vigorously. When you have a good froth, REMOVE CAP and microwave the milk mixture to desired temperature. Never leave the cap on and do not shake a capped jar with hot liquid or you will get injured!

  1. It would be nice to be able to find the recipe. Looked at the page a dozen times. Cannot see any recipe. Just pictures and dairy advertising.

    Whenever I head north to visit my parents, I’m always jolted back into the reality of the shorter days. Even that extra hour makes a difference! This latte is just the thing I need right now to warm me up.
