How to Make a Pumpkin Spice Latte

I’m excited about my recipes this week.  That doesn’t really tell you all that much since I’m  excited about new recipes every week… but this week I’m particularly excited.  Why is that, you ask? Well,  I loved this week’s recipes.  My husband loved this week’s recipes.  My son loved this week’s recipes.  I hope you love them too.  Today I’m going to show you  How to Make Your Very Own Pumpkin Spice Latte, in the comfort of your own home… without waiting in long lines or shelling out a gazillion pennies.   We’re going to make a “tall” latte, as they say in the coffee world.  You’ll be able to get two regular coffee-cup sized lattes out of this method if you’re willing to share the goods with someone else.

I love Instagram.  I shared this photo the other day on Instagram after making this latte and messing with my Camera + App.  You can do the coolest things with photos on your iPhone.

Anyway, here’s how you make this…

Brew your favorite cup of coffee in your cutest coffee cup.  Strong, if you want a strong coffee flavor in your latte.  We use a single brewer Keurig since we don’t go through pots of coffee at our house.  I just found out recently that you can get one of those K-Cup things if you like to brew with your favorite grounds.

Add pumpkin puree to a half cup of milk.  I used whole milk since I love that rich flavor.  If I were on a diet, like I should be, I’d use nonfat milk.

Add brown sugar…

…and vanilla extract…

…and pumpkin pie spice.  Did you know you can make your own pumpkin pie spice?  See the tips in my recipe below…

Whisk all that good stuff together.

And then put it in the microwave.

One or two minutes later, and your pumpkin milk mixture is hot and frothy and ready for latte – ing.

Pour all of that pumpkin milk into a tallish mug or glass.

Pour your hot cup of coffee in next.

Add a little half & half.

Add a teaspoon of sugar…

…and stir and taste.  Add more sugar if you’d like it sweeter.

Add a little bit of whipped cream (optional, but not really).

Okay, add a lot of whipped cream (it’s better that way).

Sprinkle nutmeg on top.

How to Make a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Home

And there you go!  No lines, no weird syrups, and perfectly delicious for a chilly fall morning.  See why I was so excited?  Love.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Yield: 1 drink

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 4 min

Do It Yourself version of Starbuck's delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte...

Ingredients:

1/2 cup whole milk

1 tablespoon unsweetened canned pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup hot brewed, strong coffee
2 tablespoons half & half cream
1 teaspoon granulated white sugar, or more to taste
whipped cream, optional
ground nutmeg

Directions:

1. In a glass measuring cup or microwave-safe bowl, whisk together milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, spice and vanilla. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes- watch closely and remove it from the microwave when the milk is hot and frothy.

2. Pour the pumpkin milk into a tall mug or glass. Add hot coffee. Pour in the cream. Add a teaspoon of sugar. Stir, and taste. Add more sugar, if desired.

3. Optional, but oh so good... add whipped cream on top and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Serve immediately!

Tips:

*Feel free to lighten up the recipe by using nonfat milk and fat-free half & half. It won't be as rich, but it will still give you that yummy pumpkin latte flavor.

*If you don't have pumpkin pie spice in your collection of spices, make your own! Mix equal parts of cinnamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg- and measure from there.

    I make pumpkin spice lattes at home, too. I came up with my own recipe a few weeks back and have been really enjoying it. I love coffee in all forms..hot, cold, specialty drinks, in desserts, I’d love to win coffee.

    Beautiful pics, too, Lori!

    Cool! I’m embarrassed to say I never expected real pumpkin in the recipe…how awesome! I can’t wait to try this.

    I take my daily coffee with one Splenda and skim milk. But what I love most is iced coffee made with milk and a bit of caramel…

    I like my coffee with chocolate & peppermint creamer. I could drink it year round! This pumpkin spice latte looks yummy too!

    Kimberly A. — October 10, 2011 @ 5:20 AM

    On a day-to-day basis, I like coffee with a little bit of half and half (so boring- I know). However, on the weekends (in the fall), I treat myself pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. Once it is winter- I turn to gingerbread lattes. Glad I now know how to make my own pumpkin spice lattes! Thanks!

    I LOVE Pumpkin lattes when the weather gets cooler! I usually get mine from Panera Bread, but now I will try my hand at making my own. Thanks for the recipe and giveaway!!

    In the summertime I like caramel iced coffees and in the cooler/cold seasons I like to try all the different flavors of cream in my home brewed coffee.

    I like my coffee with sugar and gingerbread flavored creamer. But this pumpkin spiced latte would totally beat out my coffee!

    Next to the White Chocolate Mocha, the Spiced Pumpkin Latte is my favorite Starbucks drink :) I was so excited to see this post on FB this morning I nearly jumped out of my seat!!

    K.Lee — October 10, 2011 @ 6:12 AM

    I just love coffee. In any way shape and form. I’ll even reheat old coffee in the microwave if that’s my only option. But in the perfect world, I like my coffee with a hershey kiss in the bottom of the cup, hot coffee then fresh made whipped cream drizzled with butterscotch ice cream syrup. YUM!

    OOO, as a side note. If you love the creamy of half and half but not the fat (or all the extra junk in FF half and half) use FF evaporated milk. Divine!

    I love my coffee STRONG with peppermint creamer – I wasn’t able to find peppermint creamer last year so I settled for pumpkin creamer. Super excited to try this recipe, too!

    Jenna — October 10, 2011 @ 7:22 AM

    This recipe for a pumpkin spice latte looks delish! I love my coffee with lots and lots of skim milk and just a hint of sugar. Sometimes a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top, too :)

  21. 21

    Michelle Adams — October 10, 2011 @ 7:23 AM

    I can’t wait to try this recipe! I adore coffee in any and all forms. In the summer I start my day with an iced coffee and in the winter with a nice warm latte. Mid morning I’ll likely have regular coffee with cream only. On hot summer nights I love a coffee cooler and in the winter I have cafe mochas. I just love them all!

  22. 22

    Kim (@zurichnee) — October 10, 2011 @ 7:24 AM

    This looks positively delicious! After the pumpkin pie is in the oven I am making one of these! oh yeah….

  23. 23

    Catherine — October 10, 2011 @ 7:24 AM

    My normal coffee is just plain old (strong) coffee with half and half. I get excited when the Pumpkin Spice Lattes come out, but only because that means that soon my favorite Eggnog Lattes will be hitting Starbucks! (I make ‘em at home, too!)

    Yum!

  24. 24

    Maddy — October 10, 2011 @ 7:25 AM

    Fantastic! and a great use for any extra pumpkin puree. I will definitely be trying this recipe.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I love Carmel macchiato but must try this one!

    Breezy — October 10, 2011 @ 7:26 AM

    I love doing the same thing with chocolate – just melt a square of dark chocolate into the milk with a sprinkle of sugar. You get a rich cup of coffee without the sugar overload. Also great for hot chocolate!

  27. 27

    Melissa C — October 10, 2011 @ 7:26 AM

    I love my coffee with 1 Splenda and a little milk. but for a special treat, I make pumpkin spice lattes in my crockpot (makes the house smell wonderful and is like a dessert).

  28. 28

    Carla — October 10, 2011 @ 7:29 AM

    I love coffee! If it’s the weekend, I use my espresso maker for a good latte. If it’s the weekday, I buy freshly roasted ground coffee from a coffee roaster nearby and use the regular drip coffee maker. We have kerig makers at work.

    nicole — October 10, 2011 @ 7:39 AM

    I love iced coffee more than hot coffee. I can drink ice coffee in the middle of the winter and i still love it. I can’t drink black. I like milk or half & half and A LOT of sugar. If BF grabs my drink by mistake he quickly knows since it’s more like chewing than drinking. ha

    I love coffee with creamer and sugar — hazelnut creamer is my favorite. For a special treat I love Latte!

  32. 32

    Shannon B — October 10, 2011 @ 7:44 AM

    In the morning, I just love a cup of dark coffee. As poor college kids, my room mates and I have taken to adding a few shakes of cinnamon into our grounds before brewing—–makes any cheap-o coffee tatse just that much better! But this pumpkin spice latte is going to get made this Satruday for sure!

    Heidi Collins — October 10, 2011 @ 7:44 AM

    Yummy, pumpkin spice latte sounds very yummy – will have to try that.

    Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray — October 10, 2011 @ 7:45 AM

    Your latte looks great! I drink my coffee black every morning but I love to treat myself to a sweet drink (especially the seasonal ones) at Starbucks when I go.

    Definitely the pumpkin spice latte!

    I drink my coffee black. But also really like lattes and sweet coffee drinks. I’ve been making my own pumpkin pie lattes here at home as well. Thanks for the chance of winning some great coffee! My husband and I go through lots and lots of it. We hardly know how to function without our coffee in the mornings. :)

    Rose — October 10, 2011 @ 7:59 AM

    I like my coffee plain black, but if I get it at a crappy diner at 3AM I will add cream and sugar, because it’s never as good as the kind I brew at home. I cannot wait to make this pumpkin latte, every year I get it at starbucks, but I think I’ll be able to save myself the trip now! Thanks~

  47. 47

    Kimberly A. — October 10, 2011 @ 8:01 AM

    My husband and I are HUGE Coffee drinkers, we’ll have about 2-3 Venti sized cups a day. We drink it in a variety of ways, usually we’ll go to Starbucks and get a black Iced Coffee, with 3 pumps of White Mocha, and Non-fat milk, and the sugar/salt mixture they have sprinkled on the top. We love it, and it’s super cheap compared to most drinks there. Then we’ll bring the cups home, and recycle them, we make a pot of Coffee, let it cool, and make Iced Coffee of our own. Black Coffee, Ice Cubes, and Creamer (usually sugar free vanilla, but right now it’s Pumpkin Pecan).

    I love the Pumpkin Latte’s from Starbucks, I wish they kept them all year…but now with this recipe I’ll stock up on canned Pumpkin, and I can have it all year! Thank you!

  48. 48

    Janis Nunez — October 10, 2011 @ 8:03 AM

    I just love reading your posts! :) You always know just what I need! :) My favorite thing to order from Starbucks is a Granda, nonfat, no whip pumpkin spice latte. :) That’s a mouthful…but it’s delicious!!! Thanks for a cheaper way to do it. I have tried other recipes and it’s just not the same, so I am looking forward to this one!

    At home I just put cinnamon plus blend in my coffee grounds for a zing! :)

  49. 49

    Emily B. — October 10, 2011 @ 8:07 AM

    I made this and I added some brown sugar and maple creamer at the end. It’s my new favorite creamer and this pumpkin latte is amazing!!!

    Nicole Hammers — October 10, 2011 @ 8:08 AM

    THANK YOU FOR THIS! I’m kind of a pumpkin addict! I’m obsessed with pumpkin flavored coffee and pumpkin lattes. I’m always so sad when Fall is over :(

  51. 51

    Susan — October 10, 2011 @ 8:08 AM

    I take my regular morning coffee with half and half and sugar – very simple girl I am. But my favorite splurge is a caramel macchiato from Starbucks. My cousin lives in NYC and it’s always on the agenda to get one when I visit him, so when I have one here in CT it makes me think of him. :)

  52. 52

    Lorna — October 10, 2011 @ 8:10 AM

    LOVE Starbucks French Roast! It’s the best coffee I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to try it with a Pumpkin Latte. I’ve been purchasing these Lattes from Whole Foods once a week. Now I can have it at home with my awesome Starbucks coffee!

  56. 56

    Lynn Graham — October 10, 2011 @ 8:20 AM

    I love this time of year with the Pumkin Spice Coffees. Hot or cold. Thank you for the recipe. I am going to make some up today. Here in Minnesota we have been blessed with great weather and beautiful colors. Taking a break and grabbing my cup of hot Pumkin Spice Coffee and heading outside to enjoy the colors. Blessings!

  57. 57

    Barb — October 10, 2011 @ 8:20 AM

    I like my coffee with Fat Free French Vanilla but Pumpkin Spice is a fall favorite! I’m already having a hard time finding canned pumpkin though! My local Safeway says it’s going to be hard to get this year! I am now on a mission because I can’t wait to try this recipe!!!

  58. 58

    I have a Dolce Gusto machine and like the dark blends and the caramel lattes. It is next to impossible to find the pods though so I have to order them online. Keurig pods are everywhere. I like the cinnamon dolce flavor at Starbucks too.

    I’m enjoying my recently-gifted Keurig! I LOVE the pumpkin spice coffee, but my fall favorite has to be a dirty chai – one chai latte, one dark magic. Yummy! I’m excited to try this latte with the pumpkin spice; there’s no such thing as TOO much pumpkin for me. :]

    Shelia — October 10, 2011 @ 9:56 AM

    Cathy T — October 10, 2011 @ 11:48 AM

    I love my coffee with just a hint of light cream. I am looking forward to trying out this recipe, though. I love all things pumpkin.

    Joanie from CLBB — October 10, 2011 @ 11:52 AM

    Yum, another good way to use some of my hoarded pumpkin, thanks, Lori. I love my (usually) 1-cup-a-day mild roasted Tar Heel Blend coffee (yep, that’s really the name ;-)) with a Tbs of sugar and a Tbs of Organic Valley 1/2 n 1/2. Before I retired and my office could still afford renting a Keurig machine, we had gotten some pumpkin coffee k-cups, very tasty!
    Thanks!

    jeannette — October 10, 2011 @ 11:56 AM

    i love my coffee with lots of frothy milk and sugar. i am a newbie to coffee so black is NOT an option for me LOL. and if starbucks’ brewed coffee gets me one step closer to the stuff they make in their cafe, then i am SO in!! :)

    this recipe looks amazing … so excited to try it!

    Joyce Pack — October 10, 2011 @ 12:14 PM

    This looks great Lori! I was going to also try my own made-up version of this popular drink! Yours looks heavenly! How do I like my coffee? It depends what time of day it is. In the morning I like it black and Folgers will do just fine. In the afternoon, I like a half a cup of something a little stronger with a tiny bit of sweetness to it.
    I also do very much enjoy the Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks but only for a rare treat. Little bit too sweet for my taste. :)

  89. 89

    Denise — October 10, 2011 @ 12:19 PM

    This time of year I like pumpkin coffee in the afternoon to warm up so this latte looks fabulous. Other than that just a little sprinkling of cinnamon on my coffee puts it over the edge.

    I love coffee. I’ll splurge on a latte once a week or so but everyday it’s dark roast with cream.

    Kim — October 10, 2011 @ 2:05 PM

    This sounds absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing! I love the idea of making this without flavored syrups and whatever other “junk” the coffee shops put in them. Can’t wait to make this…

    I’m a lazy girl, and make my pumpkin lattes by heating and frothing 1 tablespoon of Coffeemate Pumpkin Spice Creamer in my coffee cup, then topping it off with regular coffee. Cheap and delicious!

    Jen — October 10, 2011 @ 3:55 PM

    This time of year, I love getting pumpkin spice lattes! But in general, I love my coffee with lots of milk (and a generous helping of sugar-free pie syrup)

  101. 101

    Nelly Rodriguez — October 10, 2011 @ 4:06 PM

    How do I NOT love coffee?! LOL, Okay, I don’t do the low fat milk thing ever, but other than that, I drink about 4-5 cups a day and love it black with raw sugar. When I need a treat, I stir VIA into hot milk. SOooo good!

    I love the pumpkin spice latte in the fall, one of my faves, the rest of the year carmel macchiato, or an iced coffe in the heat of the summer, with vanilla or carmel sryup.

    Elle Hyson — October 10, 2011 @ 5:21 PM

    first thing in the morning black straight up – in the afternoon while the weather is still warm iced coffee (made with coffee ice cubes) and heavy cream.

    Last week I had a pumpkin spice latte at Panera and can still taste it – now I can make my own – thanks a lot for such a wonderful recipe!

  109. 109

    Stacey — October 10, 2011 @ 5:25 PM

    LOVE <3 LOVE <3 LOVE <3 Pumpkin Lattes, will definitely try this on the morning!!! I have made many of your recipes they have all been GREAT, I am sure this one won't disappoint! :)

    Monica N. — October 10, 2011 @ 5:36 PM

    I can’t drink any milk except for skim…and anyone who has ever tried making a coffee with skim milk, knows it’s just sad lol. It doesn’t make your coffee lighter, so I heat up half a mug of skim in the microwave for about a minute, that makes it slightly thicker so that when you add coffee to it, it’s like having a latte because it’s slightly frothy on top too!

  112. 112

    Lisa — October 10, 2011 @ 5:54 PM

    I am a 2% no foam latte lover – and can make them at home since my husband figured out an espresso machine paid for itself pretty quickly! But I do love Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice lattes – can’t wait to try this recipe!

  116. 116

    Amanda — October 10, 2011 @ 6:55 PM

    I like my coffee… seasonally appropriate! Right now I am loving my morning cup with some sweetened condensed milk OR with regular milk + maple syrup. yummy!

    Jachel — October 10, 2011 @ 7:22 PM

    Crystal — October 10, 2011 @ 7:22 PM

    I had never seen your website until I clicked on a friend’s link tonight. I count down the days until Starbucks has their pumpkin spice lattes. Last fall I was pregnant & was excited when my husband would occasionally surprise me with the decaf version. I cannot wait to try your recipe! It looks delicious!

  119. 119

    Lydia — October 10, 2011 @ 7:41 PM

    omg. I love Pumpkin Spice lattes! Can’t wait to make this! If I’m at home I drink my coffee black. If I go to a coffee shop I usually get something with way too many calories like a pumpkin spice latte! :)

    Shaun — October 10, 2011 @ 8:38 PM

    I am pretty particular with my coffee. My regular coffee is light with a splenda. If it is made right, I will drink it from really hot to room temp to cold. My two favorite flavored coffees are Pumpkin and Blueberry. Have only purchased these and made at home as regular coffee (no latte, frappe etc…) You got me at Pumpkin Latte! We are having a slight heat wave in the Northeast right now, but as soon as the fall chill sets in I’ll be trying out your recipe.

  126. 126

    Amy — October 10, 2011 @ 9:13 PM

    My fav is sugar free hazelnut creamer w/ my coffee @ home. Otherwise I love chai latte. This recipe looks amazing & so easy. Can’t wait to make it.

  128. 128

    Stephanie — October 10, 2011 @ 9:25 PM

    My most common drink is plain, scalding hot latte. But once in a great while I can’t resist a whipped-cream-on-top kind of hot coffee drink…………..and this one looks like the perfect one. My favorite thing about it? The REAL pumpkin puree you used! So, it’s a tiny bit nutritious, too!

  129. 129

    Kristen — October 10, 2011 @ 9:50 PM

    I drink some type of coffee everyday. Normally it’s just plain coffee with a splash of creamer (my favorites are vanilla caramel or chocolate raspberry). But sometimes I like a mocha. The place by my office has the best mochas – they put espresso in the whipped cream!

    My absolute favorite concoction is an eggnog latte! It’s a tad early, but really the season is just around the corner, so I’m already dreaming of it….YUM!!

  133. 133

    Amy — October 10, 2011 @ 11:27 PM

    I had a fireball latte at, of all places, the coffee shop in the hospital while my daughter was having surgery. It was awesome (and the surgery went smoothly too!).

  134. 134

    Diane Vandermast — October 10, 2011 @ 11:36 PM

    I’ll probably disqualify myself by admitting this, but I’m a confirmed tea drinker, and rarely drink coffee. I love to experiment with chai and other tea recipes, and will definitely try this pumpkin one. I have lots of coffee-loving friends and relatives, and would love to win the Starbucks assortment and have a tasting party for them.

  135. 135

    Angela Peterson — October 11, 2011 @ 12:49 AM

    of course my all time favorite is the pumpkin spiced latte! fall can never get here fast enough. thanks to recipes like yours, i can enjoy them year round! runner up is just good old fashioned plain coffee, with a bit of cream! thanks for all of your fantastic recipes!!!!

  136. 136

    Tricia — October 11, 2011 @ 2:25 AM

    Unfortunately, Starbucks left my world after I lost my job! Once in a while a friend does treat me and the pumpkin latte is my favorite! With your receipe I can repay many friends. Txs! Yum!

    Emily — October 11, 2011 @ 5:02 AM

    I like making my own Pumpkin Spice Lattes at home, my own adaptation of other recipes that I’ve seen around the web. If I’m going to a coffeehouse though, I love a good fat free (skinny) latte with sugar free flavored syrup! (chocolate, if they have it)

    Love your recipes!

    Sharon Haertling — October 11, 2011 @ 5:56 AM

    I take coffee black, if it is medium or light roast, and with splenda and cream if it’s dark roast. But my favorite, secret weakness is McDonald’s caramel frappe’. Can’t wait to try the pumpkin latte.

  145. 145

    Shauna — October 11, 2011 @ 5:57 AM

    Debbie — October 11, 2011 @ 6:10 AM

    Jennalee Z — October 11, 2011 @ 6:24 AM

    I drink WAY too much coffee. I may be addicted. I take mine with skim and a packet of splenda. Boring, i know.

    But, I love to splurge on a Starbucks skinny vanilla latte. Delicious :)

    I love the pumpkin spice latte. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe to make it at home. My newest fave is salted caramel mocha. Oh.yum! Plain, iced, is perfect for a summer morning at the park. Really, there isn’t a way I won’t drink coffee. lol

  155. 155

    glenna — October 11, 2011 @ 7:10 AM

    Elliott — October 11, 2011 @ 7:28 AM

    My wife tells me she married me for my coffee…and really, it’s one of the best things I do. I have perfected the use of the french press. What’s important: water temperature (and water quality), coarseness of the grounds, ground-to-water ratio, the amount of stirs, and the length of steeping.

    There is no alternative to a great cup of french-pressed coffee!

    Your recipes sound so yummy! I would love it if you could include the nutritional information with them. That way I can decide how much of a treat I can allow myself to eat. Sometimes I’ll splurge and sometimes I’d be more careful depending on the recipe.

    Thanks a million,

    Sara B — October 11, 2011 @ 1:38 PM

    I love all sorts of coffee as long as it is strong! I used to only drink freshly ground and only directly from coffee houses never from a grocery store. I was a coffee snob!! But I’m much more frugal now. I will drink whatever coffee that is on sale at the store. Not that I don’t prefer others but saving money tastes better than the best tasting coffee! :) So I would love to win esp. since I’ve had pretty sorry coffee lately.

  173. 173

    Stephanie Thomason — October 11, 2011 @ 1:45 PM

    I love pumpkin anything!!! Especially a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks! In the fall I always by the pumpkin spice creamer & add it to my coffee. Delicious!! Drinking a cup as I type. Have you ever made pumpkin muffins…easy recipe…1 spice cake box & a can of pumpkin…mix those 2 ingredients only! And bake in a mini muffin pan for about 10 mins. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

  174. 174

    Brittany Cake — October 11, 2011 @ 2:43 PM

    I am one of those people that spends a gazillion pennies on PSL’s at Starbucks. Making my own will put a dent in their profits. Oh – but I will still buy their coffee to make them, so maybe they will be OK.

    Yes! The pumpkin spice latte is on the menu tomorrow! Tis the season! My usual is 4 shots espresso(hey, I’ve got kids at home with me!) , steamed frothed milk, sugar. If I get a bit crazy and I’ve remembered all the items on the grocery list then I get whipped cream! I go light in the afternoon and only have a double with a drizzle of carmel.

    I make my own version of these using canned pumpkin and Epicure Pumpkin Pie spice; however I do like that you use brown sugar. I will definitely try next time. Love love Starbucks coffee! I usually have a brewed coffee in the morning and treat myself to a skinny latte a couple time a week (cinnamon dolce is my favorite)

    Great recipe – can’t wait to give it a try! I think my favorite is a good flavored coffee (hazelnut or amaretto are the best!) with way too much creamer. Mmmm.

  194. 194

    Francesca — October 12, 2011 @ 6:49 AM

    The only coffee I truly love is a medium regular coffee from Tim Horton’s with 3 creams and 3 splendas. Pure perfection! Other than that, I absolutely love Panera’s Caramel Latte or regular Latte….or Starbucks’ Caramel Macchiato or Skinny Vanilla Latte.

    Coffee Milk – 1/2 cup strong coffee, 2 Tbsp Chocolate Mocha coffee creamer, 1/2 cup 2% milk, crushed ice. Pour milk, mocha creamer over ice in a tall insulated glass, add coffee — enjoy! A low-calorie yummy drink that keeps me away from the snacks in the breakroom at work !!
    PS – will definitely be trying the Pumpkin Latte – sounds delish

    Gonna try this recipe for sure; but trying to stay away from dairy and white sugar. Think I’ll modify recipe to use Almond Milk and Maple Syrup; everything else will work. I’ll have to let you know how it turns out. Love the real pumpkin in the recipe (adds fiber). Thanks for sharing this recipe! A winner for sure.

    With LOTS of half and half! Yum! This recipe looks delightful!

    Dawn C. — October 12, 2011 @ 9:14 AM

    I have to tell you… this was DELICIOUS! I was SO excited when I first saw the recipe yesterday! I couldn’t wait to make it this morning!! I was even late to work because I just HAD to make this today (note to readers: it’s not time consuming, but does need a few more minutes than a normal cup of coffee). It’s SO much better than Starbucks, IMO. I used vanilla almond soy milk and sugar free vanilla creamer instead of half-half. THANK YOU for the deliciousness and saving me $4.00+ on a cup of coffee!! :)

    Thanks so much! Just had my first one yesterday (and my second one today). Better to get a recipe than become a frequent Starbucks-er.

    Emily — October 12, 2011 @ 2:40 PM

    Mmm! This sounds delightful! I just made my own pumpkin puree a few nights ago, and if you’re up for this you should really try doing it yourself, no more searching shelves for over priced cans of pumpkin! I bought a nice sweet pumpkin, it was actually a green gord I can’t remember the name of it (I chose organic because I find they are so much more flavorful!) and I cut that bad boy in half and roasted flesh side down at 400 degrees until it was soft, pulled it out of the oven and pureed it in my food processor. Boy! I’m telling you the flavor difference is insane! I payed 7 dollars for my pumpkin and got 9 cups of puree out of it! Its so sweet and fresh and freezes really well. I just separated it into 1 cup increments and put those in baggies and froze them.

    I have an breville espresso machine I scored at goodwill for 23 dollars, it was broken at the time but my hubby cracked that bad boy open and fixed it. Now I have the most incredible espresso everyday! I enjoy iced americanos and spiced soy lattes very much! I’m also a cappucino girl. What can I say I’m a barista at heart, I mean I AM from Oregon! But now that I saw this lovely recipe I think I am going to have to pull one of those zip loc bags out and defrost it and treat my hubby to a fall delight. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I love this idea I’m always doing things with coffee and i love pumpkin so the idea of making it at home comes with great pleasure :D love mine with strong coffee flavor and whole milk too :D

  204. 204

    sharonjo — October 12, 2011 @ 7:22 PM

    I’ve never attempted making latte at home, but you’ve made it look pretty simple–and delicious! I like my coffee with cream, no sugar. Thanks!

    Krista E — October 12, 2011 @ 8:02 PM

    Cheryl — October 12, 2011 @ 8:43 PM

    I love all the seasonal drinks at Starbucks including the much anticipated Pumpkin Spice Latte. Thanks for the tip, will be trying this weekend. I also love the Vias from Starbucks at home with half and half, it makes a latte effect.

  207. 207

    Donna — October 12, 2011 @ 11:39 PM

    Coffee is The Nectar of the Gods!!! I enjoy it an time of the day or night…And thank heavens for fall & the PSL…I wait all year to savor that first cup knowing fall has finally arrived!

    Joella Sommerhauser — October 13, 2011 @ 7:57 AM

    This sounds so good…I will definitely have to try it! I love rich, bold coffee with a flavored creamer…lately I’ve been using cinnamon bun and italian sweet cream flavored creamers.

  212. 212

    Kelly — October 13, 2011 @ 8:02 AM

    Pumpkin spiced latte is one of my favorite ways to enjoy coffee. Thanks for the recipe! I think I’ll have to go and make one right now :)…

    Holly — October 13, 2011 @ 8:07 AM

    I am so excited to try this recipe, I am a basic black coffee drinker most of the time, maybe a little milk, but when the pumpkin spice latte is available I cannot get enough!!

  214. 214

    Pamela — October 13, 2011 @ 8:08 AM

    I’m making one of these the minute I get home! Thanks for the recipe!

    I like my cappuccinos with caramel or vanilla and a dash of cinnamon on top. OR a shot of espresso in a chai latte for what is known as a “dirty chai”. YUM.

  215. 215

    Aprile — October 13, 2011 @ 8:13 AM

    I like my coffee hot, creamy and sweet – any flavor, any combo, any size! Definitely trying this recipe today! Thanks!

    Dusty Hubbard — October 13, 2011 @ 8:19 AM

    I like my coffee with tons of sugar and creamer. It’s more of a dessert than a coffee when I get through with it!!

  217. 217

    Tabitha — October 13, 2011 @ 8:21 AM

    I love my morning cup of Joe so much that it is almost a ritual for me. I like a medium roast, with one packet of sweet n low and about a tablespoon of a liquid, flavored creamer. I switch of the creams to keep it intresting! It makes the drive to work so much more enjoyable :)

  218. 218

    Rosa — October 13, 2011 @ 9:11 AM

    I love my coffee so many ways! Black with a splash of cream, frozen with a bit of caramel, mixed half and half with steamed milk and a taste of gingerbread, and definitely purchased from Starbucks as a pumpkin spice latte! Mmm I need to go brew some coffee now :)

  219. 219

    Pam-OnTheGoMom — October 13, 2011 @ 9:37 AM

    I made this Pumpkin Spice Latte for my sweet husband and our 2 children. They Love LoVE LOVED it! Of course I used Starbucks French roast for that great coffee taste. We visit Starbucks about once a week and I love a good Starbucks Latte whenever I can get one. Thanks for developing the recipe. soooo yum.

    Hannah Mergler — October 13, 2011 @ 10:43 AM

    While coffee is very much a necessity I still try to this “daily staple” as a little treat that helps me start my day off right. Depending on the season I like it iced, spiced, warm, sugared, creamed, flavored, etc. On days where I find myself in need of an extra pick me up I add a dollop whipped cream..a few calories are undeniably worth starting your day on the right foot! I also live by the philosophy that if it’s homemade it’s good for you so If the coffee shop makes their whipped cream from scratch I am obligated to ALWAYS say yes!

  223. 223

    Sherri McDonald — October 13, 2011 @ 10:56 AM

    I love this time of year. I usually spend endless money at “Starbucks” buying the pumpkin spice latte. What a terrific, delicious cost effective alternative and I can keep my “fivebucks” in my pocket. Outstanding…..

  224. 224

    Don’t care for the taste of coffee – anyone have a recipe for a similar drink without coffee? Love pumpkin though!!!

  226. 226

    Bonner — October 13, 2011 @ 11:23 AM

    I like NON-Fat lattes when I drink them. I LOVE ANYTHING related in the “squash” Family MOST of all PUMPKIN!! Yum!

  227. 227

    Nicole Romero — October 13, 2011 @ 11:34 AM

    The stronger the better! I like to start with a cup of espresso blend coffee brewed extra strong with the “strong brew” feature on my coffee maker. I warm my fat free half and half, add whatever flavorings I’m in the mood for as well as some splenda and then stir it all together. Paired with a piece of warm pumpkin spice bread in the fall it’s TO LIVE FOR! I can’t wait to try this recipe. Thanks.

  228. 228

    Mary — October 13, 2011 @ 11:55 AM

    Regular morning coffee – black. Afternoon and evening coffee – flavored, sweet and light.

    Oh my coffee, pumpkin, whipped cream what more can you ask for. I have been enjoying Starbucks coffee for years. I will be serving Pumpkin Latte’s this afternoon to my girlfriends. We all be having whipped cream mustaches, and smiles. Thanks for the recipe.

  230. 230

    Pauli — October 13, 2011 @ 12:23 PM

    I love Starbucks mild blend coffee with 1/2 & 1/2 and Splenda, but also love specialty coffee drinks like Pumpkin Spice Lattes! I can’t wait to try the Salted Caramel Mocha.

  231. 231

    Joanna — October 13, 2011 @ 1:20 PM

    Try the Vanilla Bean Frappaccino with a shot of the pumpkin spice! Yummy and a great alternative for kids or people who don’t want/like the espresso but want the fall flavor. My daughter loved it! I will definitely be making this pumpkin spice latte with the cinnamon roll pancakes this weekend.Thanks!!

  232. 232

    Wendy — October 13, 2011 @ 2:48 PM

    I am falling in love with starting with a base of Starbucks Via……that way I can enjoy Starbucks without leaving the house. The simpliest that I also do a lot is to mix Via with 2 parts water, 1 part milk, French Vanilla coffee creamer to taste. I’m going to have to make this Pumpkin Spice Latte VERY soon!!
    I’d love to win this basket so I could do more experimenting!

  233. 233

    ShelleyBakes — October 13, 2011 @ 4:55 PM

    Tanya — October 13, 2011 @ 5:22 PM

    I absolutely LOVE fall for many reasons. Pumpkin spice lattes being one of them. It’s my favoritist coffee drink in the whole wide world. Nothing beats a hot steaming cup of sweet creamy comfort on a crisp Autumnal morning.

    PURE Yum! I did have to catch myself several times thinking- you night 2 pumpkins specially to purée just to make a coffee? ( I’m in the UK- we don’t do canned purée in the shops!). But boy, was this worth it, even making the pumpkin spice! I shall be blogging about this later. Thanks, thankyou and ta for this superb recipe. My kitchen is in a state but I am supremely happy!! x

    Jen — October 14, 2011 @ 6:58 AM

    I love my one cup Keurig coffee maker – it brews a perfectly hot and strong cup of coffee! And I tend not to overindulge in too much coffee, one cup is Just what I need in the morning!

  241. 241

    Chrisi — October 14, 2011 @ 7:09 AM

    Ohhh, yummy. I like my coffee with cream and a little sugar. As the air chills, coffee just seems to taste just a little better. :o)

  242. 242

    Nancy B — October 14, 2011 @ 9:09 AM

    Not a straight coffee drinker, but I liked lattes and such. My current favorite is a skinny vanilla latte.

  243. 243

    Erin — October 14, 2011 @ 9:09 AM

    I love my coffee in many ways, but my standard is plain black coffee, preferably a dark roast. I do love pumpkin spice lattes and this recipe looks delicious! I also love chai with shots of espresso in it for a perfect fall coffee beverage.

  244. 244

    Manette Gutterman — October 14, 2011 @ 9:13 AM

    Nikelle Rose — October 14, 2011 @ 11:32 AM

    Coffee is one of those drinks that I reserve for special occasions — usually it’s my drink for after a realllly yummy dinner or wedding, when catching up with dear friends, or when I am having sweet quiet time with my Bible and some worship music.
    (does that count for how I “take” my coffee?)

  247. 247

    Lisa Brown — October 14, 2011 @ 12:09 PM

    OMG…I am at Starbuck’s EVERY DAY after the gym trying new skinny hot & cold beverages with one of their wonderful cups of oatmeal! I love PUMPKIN everything & am going to make a pumpkin protein shake right now and have the pumpkin latte later. The recipe looks awesome & easy & will save me some $$ so I can buy that Keurig I have been eyeing. Great pics too!

  248. 248

    Kierston — October 14, 2011 @ 12:12 PM

    I can’t believe I saw this post- i was literally just talking to my roommate today about how I need to stop buying pumpkin spice lattes everyday because they are both costing me too much money and too many extra minutes at the gym.

    Normally I brew my coffee with a little cinnamon and nutmeg mixed in with the grounds and then just add some non-fat half and half (i’m a 3 cups a day girl so I have to cut the cals somehow). But when the holidays come around, the employees at Starbucks start to learn my name because I CAN”T resist their drinks!

    YOU ROCK RECIPE GIRL!

  249. 249

    Crystal — October 15, 2011 @ 7:31 AM

    Thanks so much for this recipe! As a stay at home mom with a 6 week old, I was looking for a way to treat myself inexpensively and without leaving the house. This is it! I usually brew myself a double shot of espresso in the mornings, and if my little one is peacefully asleep, I will add hot water for an americano or steamed milk for a cappuccino. This morning, since dad was home, I made myself this pumpkin latte. Yummy!

  257. 257

    Wendy — October 15, 2011 @ 9:56 AM

    I can’t wait to try this!! I bought pumpkin spice Coffee Mate to try and make my coffee taste like the pumpkin latte. I like it, especially with my starbucks breakfast blend, but I am sure that I will no longer be able to use it once I make my own latte at home :)

  268. 268

    Red2sday — October 16, 2011 @ 5:30 AM

    It seems like all the ingredients and work would be just as costly as a ‘gazillion’ pennies? Maybe it’s just me, but a quick trip through an expert coffee shop like Starbucks does the trick for me…especially since they use espresso and not just a junky cup of coffee.

  272. 272

    Lori Lange — October 16, 2011 @ 10:38 AM

    This time of year, I am drawn to the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks. I look forward to it each year! I am on a diet, and I make room for it on my plan. I ask for non fat milk and no whipped cream. I have tried to ask for half of the syrup, but I really like it with all of the flavor.
    But, typically, I can be found each morning brewing my own at home. I add cream and Splenda. Life is good.

    Made this! So good…used skim instead of 2%..still added the half & half though & used pumpkin pie filling… turned out AWESOME! Yum!

    It’s always nice to have a brewed-at-home cup of coffee, especially when the weather turns cold! Pumpkin Spice Lattes are the perfect sipper this time of year.

    I have, unsuccessfully, been trying to make a pumpkin coffee drink so I’m so glad you posted this. I was definitely missing a few ingredients and I never thought of brown sugar! Thank you very much for this recipe!

    I didn’t read through all the comments, but just a quick tip on adding some froth to your latte. I put about 1/2 c of milk in a mason jar, screw on the lid, and then shake it for about 30-45 seconds. Take the lid off and microwave for 30 seconds. Voila! Frothed milk! Just use a fork to hold the froth when adding the milk to your coffee, then scoop the rest on top.

    This is amazing! I’ve been searching for a great latte recipe that doesn’t actually require a latte machine. Tried it today (rainy & cold, perfect day), and I loved it! It was so simple & easy. Thanks for the pumpkin spice tip as well, definitely needed that. I’ve pinned this on Pinterest as well, given credit & all.

    I have got to try this recipe! I made a blog post talking about how awesome this recipe is. I love pumpkins, cinnamon, whipped cream, coffee, fall, saving $$$ (lol! whole point of whipping up a dupe of starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte right?) I so want to try this, I have a can of pumpkin ready for all the latte’s I’m fixing to make this fall season! :D

  305. 305

    Tenley — September 10, 2012 @ 7:10 PM

    I like pumpkin chais. Can’t wait to try this with my chai mix!

  306. 306

    Sara — September 12, 2012 @ 11:30 AM

    I havent tried this yet.. I see in the grocery store there is a canned pumpkin PIE mix that already has sugar and spices… do you think I could get that and add to the milk and forgo having to add pumpkin pie spice and sugar in the coffee? Just a thought..? Trying to simplify as much as possible…

  307. 307

    Lydia Castillo — September 13, 2012 @ 9:39 PM

    I’ve hit jackpot! Thank you so much! Now Starbucks won’t take ALL of my money this fall.

    Louisa — September 15, 2012 @ 7:42 PM

    I don’t like to be a party pooper but… I wasn’t just terribly impressed with this… just wondering if there’s a way to jazz it up a little? Would more sugar help? Or more spices?

    Patricia Young — September 22, 2012 @ 1:26 PM

    Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe! I think it’s even better than the Starbucks version…and so much easier to control the fat and sugar; you know exactly what’s in your drink. Thanks again! I’ll be enjoying this for many fall evenings to come and serving it to friends and family!

    This is an amazing recipe. I had bought my first pumpkin latte of the seasrday and was majorly disappointed.it didn’t taste like pumpkin at all. So I found this recipe this afternoon and had to try it right away.I love it. It tastes just like pumpkin pie. I will defiantly use it year round as I always hated waiting for fall.thankyou!

    Saw this recipe and had to make it right away!!! I love pumpkin in everything so I was excited about this, only change I would make is to make my coffee stronger and using 1/2 tbs more of the pumpkin!

    Jerene — September 27, 2012 @ 9:07 AM

    THANK YOU! This is a great recipe! For a lactose-free version, I used coconut milk in the place of milk & coconut milk coffee creamer in the place of half n half and it still ROCKS!!! You have no Idea how much money this will save me now that I won’t be going to my favorite (name brand) latte shop as much. ;o) Awesome Recipe,

    javachic — October 25, 2012 @ 7:22 AM

    Oh Yum! Thank you for your recipes-you haven’t failed me yet!
    Made this using Pumpkin Butter* (from Trader Joe’s), heated everything on the stove, then used immersion blender to froth it. I used strong coffee, but next time will try Espresso. I think that would be much better!
    *Have also purchased Pumpkin Butter at a local apple orchard/cider mill.

    sveda — October 28, 2012 @ 9:30 PM

    An easy way to make pumpkin purée is to blend it and liquefy pumpkin first and then boil in a saucepan with a tablespoon of sugar only,so this way it caramelises and turns deep orange. Keep boiling until you get a rich terracotta color and if its thickened. It’s optional to add corn flour for thickening only incrementally so it doesn’t clump.
    Keep boiling until you feel the desired consistency is desired.

  323. 323

    sveda — October 28, 2012 @ 10:02 PM

    Spice it up, u can go to a local Indian store and buy tea spice powder or known as tea/chai masala along with the pumpkin spice. If you want a fiery stimulation feel free to add a pinch of chilli powder into the milk mixture……..just before heating…..garnishing: scrape a few thin barks of cinnamon ….the quill ……into tiny shavings with choc powder sprinkle.
    For a creamy edge add a teaspoon of pumpkin spice cream cheese into the milk…..it will melt n give a real rich taste,,……as for pumpkin purée bake pumpkin for 45 min at 350 F n then blend or boil with the spices and store.

    omg these recipes are amazing, i just love pumpkin spice lattes. I go to panera usually and they have the best ones but now i can even make it at home! Just looking at these pictures are making me drool!!!!

    Sherri — September 1, 2013 @ 8:16 AM

    i notice that you mentioned you should use non-fat milk and something about a diet. so i assume the diet is to loose weight. have you not heard (on the dr. oz show at the very least) that the kind of fat in the cream (dr. oz calls it c.l.a. or congugated linoleic acid) that help significantly with weight loss. in addition wikepedia says “few anticarcinogens, and certainly no other known fatty acids, are as effective as CLA in inhibiting carcinogenesis in these models. Although CLA is known for its anticancer properties, researchers have also found that another form of CLA can reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease and help fight inflammation.” i read another study that showed people who consume full fat milk have less breast or prostate cancer than those who consume non fat. don’t overdo it, but be sure you get some of that CLA, now. go full fat on the dairy. (As long as it is Organic so you don’t get that old growth hormone that causes cancer. AND if you can, get the cream top, or non homogenized so you keep your arteries healthier. and even better, if you trust nature, get it raw.

    Zowie — September 14, 2013 @ 2:08 PM

    I made a few pumpkin spiced latte drinks, but this is by far the best one. I do all of mine over the stove, and this turned out lovely! I didn’t have half & half, but it was still great. Thank you much! This is my go to recipe from now on!

  329. 329

    Cheryl Lewis — September 15, 2013 @ 11:34 AM

    I just tried this, so excited to make it. No flavor what so ever, very disappointed, kept adding more spices etc. Still nothing. Won’t make again.

  330. 330

    Emily @ Life on Food — September 24, 2013 @ 2:15 PM

    Awesome! I hate the syrup stuff so this recipe is perfect. I cannot wait to try. I know it won’t be too long before I do.

    Sockmonkeys Kitchen — September 25, 2013 @ 6:57 AM

    Love this!
    I’m sending this over to a friend who cannot have the sbux PSLs because the syrup has dairy in it, and she’s dairy-free. However, this recipe can easily be made by switching out coconut cream with the milk products. Plus, pumpkin and coconut can be good friends in a coffee mug =0)
    Thanks for the awesome recipe!

    Bea — October 6, 2013 @ 11:43 AM

    So I tried this recipe, and it didn’t seem too pumpkiney – there was definite pumpkin flavor, but not enough for me. What do you recommend for making it more pumpkiney?

  335. 335

    Lori Lange — October 8, 2013 @ 8:05 PM

    Not sure! You’ll have to mess around w/ the ingredients until it tastes like what you’re looking for.
