Pumpkin Spice Latte

I’m actually not much of a coffee drinker – but sometimes I just really desperately need it to continue to function normally (I’m sure others out there know what I mean) – and when I do, it has to have flavoring, cream and sugar for me to drink it.  And whipped cream on top helps too!  :)
I know what you’re thinking – why should I make my own pumpkin spice latte when I can just go to Starbucks and buy it.  Well, not only will you save yourself over $4 for the drink – it is really easy to whip up and a very close replica of it and drink this all year ‘round if you want. 
So if you have some pumpkin puree leftover from other baking endeavors – whip one of these up for yourself – you will not be disappointed.  Enjoy! 


  • 2 cups milk (I used soymilk)
  • 2 Tbsp. canned pumpkin
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, plus additional for sprinkling
  • 1/4 cup of espresso or 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee
  • whipped cream (optional)


1. In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin and sugar and cook on medium heat, stirring, until steaming.

2. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice and whisk the mixture really well with a wire whisk.

3. Pour into two large mugs. And add the espresso or coffee on top.

4. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle additional pumpkin pie spice on top.
