Pumpkin Latte


Pumpkin Spice Latte

Finally, it's here! What I love most about fall is that all those seasonal favorites at restaurants are back through winter. I cannot help but appreciate the cooler nights and treats like pumpkin, apple, caramel and peppermint. This recipe is for a Starbuck's copycat Pumpkin Spice Latte that is only offered seasonally. Now it can be enjoyed for much less money year-round.
Servings 1 -2 servings


  • 2 cups milk product {half and half , whole milk reduced fat or skim milk}
  • 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons Pumpkin Spice Syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1-4 shots espresso or very strong coffee (I double the amount of grounds I use per cup to get my strong coffee)


  • 1. Brew your espresso or strong coffee. If brewing strong coffee, use double the amount of grounds you would in your regular coffee. Then pour coffee over grounds and repeat.
  • 2. Combine half and half or milk, pumpkin, sugar, syrup and pumpkin pie spices in a small saucepan. Heat until very hot, but do not boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla to taste if using pumpkin syrup as well. Transfer to a blender or a milk frother and blend until frothy.
  • 3. Pour 1 cup warm pumpkin milk mixture into coffee mug and add 1-4 coffee shots. To garnish, top with whipped cream and pumpkin syrup of sauce. Dust with more pumpkin pie spice if desired.
