This homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte tastes like Autumn in a mug!

There is a lot of love for the Pumpkin Spice Latte that was made famous by Starbucks. This seasonal favorite comes back every Fall and for good reason! It’s creamy, flavorful, and really delicious!

What’s not to love? Well, maybe the artificial ingredients, the cost, and the fact that you have to leave your cozy house on a Sunday morning to get your “fix”! We came up with a version we love and we think you will too.

Making homemade ingredients:

The first step is to make our all-purpose easy Pumpkin Pie Spice. You can also pick up a jar at any market. This spice blend can be used all season for pies, bread, scones, and muffins, but we started off by using it in our Pumpkin Spice Syrup.

Our Pumpkin Spice Syrup is easy to make and is honestly like Fall liquid gold! Pour it on pancakes and waffles, or use as a base for a pumpkin glaze on cakes. It makes a fun mixer in a cocktail, as well. We love it in Pumpkin Spice Martinis and Pumpin Pie Milkshakes.

How to make Pumpkin Spice Lattes:

Here is our foolproof recipe for a homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte!

This recipe is for an 8-ounce latte. Adjust accordingly if you want a larger serving.

  • Prepare 1-2 shots of your favorite espresso, or 1/4 cup strong coffee, and add to a coffee mug
  • Add 1 Tbsp pumpkin puree, 1 Tbsp of pumpkin pie spice mix, and 1 Tbsp of homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup and mix to combine
  • Froth 1 cup of milk until hot and foamy. I use nonfat or 2% but any type will work. If you don’t have a frother use your blender to froth
  • You can also substitute almond or soy milk but keep in mind it won’t froth up quite the same
  • Add the frothy milk to the espresso mix
  • Top with fresh whipped cream
  • Dust with a pinch of cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Sit back in your pajamas and enjoy!
Add Pumpkin Spice Syrup to your espresso

No espresso machine? No problem

If you don’t have an espresso maker just substitute a really strong cup of coffee. Since espresso is stronger you will need to double the amount if using strong coffee.
