Copycat Pumpkin Spice Latte

I updated my pumpkin spice latte recipe.  I posted one last year, but after some trials through the season I've altered it.  I can't keep going to Starbucks (I said that last year too!).

Copycat Pumpkin Spice Latte


  • 3/4 cup fat free milk
  • 3/4 tablespoon canned pumpkin
  • 1-2 packet of sweetener or sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or 1/2 tsp for a spicier drink)
  • 1/2 cup strongly brewed coffee (or 1 nespresso pod, either lungo or regular)
  • Whipped cream, optional


  1. In a saucepan, whisk together milk, pumpkin, and sugar/sweetener on medium heat.
  2. Once steaming, mix in vanilla and pumpkin pie spice.  Whisk quickly so it develops a nice foam.
  3. Add to brewed coffee.
  4. Add whipped cream to the top (optional), with a dash of pumpkin pie spice.

I estimate the calories to be around 60-70 with this cup of pumpkin spice latte!

  1. I really want to try this. I have heard lots about pumpkin lattes and have even tasted one my hubby got, and it was awesome, but I can only drink Decaf coffee and I have never found any place that makes them with Decaf, so now I can do it myself. Thanks for sharing this..........
    I am excited...........
    Blessings, Nellie

  2. I would love to try this! My son works at Starbucks, so I should let him taste test it:)

  3. Love this recipe! Thanks for sharing it. My husband will want me to give this a try. :-)

  4. This sounds so yummy! I've been using World Market Pumpkin Spice coffee in my Keurig, and that tastes pretty good. I also have some zero calorie Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup that really enhances the pumpkin in the coffee. I know that it would be even better if I used some real pumpkin. Thanks so much for sharing and for including the calorie count.

  5. I'm thrilled you stopped by and shared at Foodie Fridays. It was fun to share. I am looking forward to seeing what fabulous post you have to share this week. Party starts Thursday at 9 pm EST. Hope to see you there.
