Make the BEST Classic, Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte in minutes!
Have you had a pumpkin spice latte yet this season? If not, I’m here to show you how easy it is to make one right at home.
This particular recipe will make 2 Pumpkin Spice Lattes and there are a few variations you can do to this recipe. I’m finding that I enjoy my latte with coconut milk more than regular milk. Anyone else discover that?
That was my discovery from visiting Starbucks recently, I opted for coconut milk and it gave it a sweeter taste, which I loved. I also love a good Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte too, which is easy to do with this recipe as well.
Where can you find Canned Pumpkin?
This has been the golden question this season it seems. Canned Pumpkin seems to be missing from many stores this year, which is unfortunate but you do have alternatives.
I also found canned pumpkin at Aldi, so far that’s the only store that I’ve been able to find it out near us.
What do you need for Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes?
- Pumpkin Puree
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Strong Coffee or Espresso
- Whipped Cream
I also prefer no whipped cream, but that’s up to you too! It’s all about what you prefer, right?
Tips for Making Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte:
This particular method involves using the stove, it can also be done in the microwave as noted in the recipe.
If you do have an actual espresso machine, you can mix all of the stovetop ingredients in a stainless steel milk frothing pitcher. Once it’s in the pitcher you would use the heated steaming wand of the machine to warm up and blend the ingredients. This would be similar to how it would be made traditionally at a coffee shop.
This particular method though will teach you how to make pumpkin spice lattes on the stovetop.
In this case, though, this recipe is written to be made by those that may not have the fancy machine at home.
Time for a tasty Pumpkin Spice Latte!
- 2 Cups Milk
- 2 Tbsp Pumpkin Puree
- 2 Tbsp Sugar
- 1 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1/2 Cup Strong Coffee or Espresso
- Whipped Cream
- In a medium saucepan, add the milk, pumpkin puree, and sugar.
- Heat until hot but not fully boiling.
- Remove from heat and whisk in the pumpkin pie spice and coffee.
- Divide into mugs and top with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice.
More or less sugar can be added depending on how sweet you like your coffee. This can also be done by whisking together the milk, puree, and sugar and warming it up in the microwave-safe bowl for 2-3 minutes until it's hot. At that point, move forward with the remaining instructions.
If you want this over ice, let the mixture cool a bit before pouring over ice or add to a cup and add the ice last.
