How to Make a Pumpkin Spice Latte


Well, I loved this recipe.  I hope you love it, too. Today I’m going to show you How to Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Latte… without waiting in long lines or shelling out a gazillion bucks. 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.

Here’s how you make this…

Brew your coffee in your favorite coffee cup. Strong, if you want a strong coffee flavor in your latte. Add pumpkin puree to a half cup of milk. Use whole milk for that rich flavor..... or use nonfat milk for a lighter drink. Add brown sugar…
…and vanilla extract… …and pumpkin pie spice. Whisk all that good stuff together. Put it in the microwave.
One or two minutes later, and your pumpkin milk mixture is hot and frothy and ready for latte! Pour all of that pumpkin milk into a tall mug or glass. Pour your hot cup of coffee in next. Add a little half & half.
Add a teaspoon of sugar or other sweetener… …now stir and taste.

Add more sugar if you like it sweeter.

Add whipped cream! Sprinkle nutmeg on top.

Now sit down and enjoy your drink!

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


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


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!


*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.
