How to make the best homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte?

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

From Yumna Jawad

The recipe following takes about 5 minutes to prepare, and will serve about 2 people.


  • 2 tablespoon pumpkin purée
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice plus more for serving
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk warmed
  • 1/2 cup strong coffee or espresso
  • Whipped cream for serving


  1. Using a high speed blender add all the ingredients except for the coffee: pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, cane sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Blend until smooth and consistent. Then pour the hot coffee into the blender and blend again until it’s all mixed together – about 2 minutes all together.
  2. Pour the latte into two – three cups and garnish with whipped cream and pumpkin spice, if desired.

For the creamiest latte, it’s best to use whole milk, but to reduce the calorie and fat content you can use 1 or 2%. Also Non-dairy milk like soy, almond, oat, or coconut milk will also work.

This recipe makes enough for two drinks. Moreover you can store any leftovers in an airtight mason jar. It will last about 24-48 hours in the fridge.

This homemade version includes real food ingredients. It has half the sugar, which is just the cane sugar that can be completely omitted or reduced to your liking.  Also it includes real pumpkin puree that makes this latte so much more satisfying and decadent!

In fact, this would make the perfect drink to cozy up to after a long day this fall, accompanied by a light sweet bite.
