Spiced Pumpkin Latte Recipe


I am such a coffee lover, especially if it’s full of flavoured syrups (not good for you I know) but this is the first time I have heard of spiced pumpkin lattes and I definitely wanted a go at making one, especially as I’m a little pumpkin obsessed right now :D.

I haven’t tried the famous Starbucks version but I’m sure this is just as good. This recipe involves using Pumpkin Spice, something I think you can only get in America, but I’ve made my own. To make this spice simply mix together 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 teaspoon nutmeg and 1 teaspoon mixed spice. Leave your spice mix in a small jar or just simply a sandwich bag.

I admit I don’t think I could drink this every morning but I would definitely make it on a Sunday afternoon, or put in a thermos flask to enjoy on a lovely cold, crisp walk. If a normal coffee is your thing, be sure to check out this guide on the best milk frothers on Cook Bake Eat. Have you ever tried the Starbucks version?  How does mine compare?

Makes 1 drink Prep Time 1mins Cook Time 5 mins Difficulty Easy


  • 1 Tablespoon Pureed Pumpkin (I picked mine up at Waitrose, but Amazon sells it also)
  • 1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
  • A Pinch of black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Soft Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Shot of Espresso
  • Whipped cream or squirty cream to top! (hehe!)


  1. In a pan heat through the pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and pepper for 4 minutes.
  2. Add the sugar and stir.
  3. Add the milk and whisk continually so all the pumpkin has blended in smoothly with the milk.
  4. Whilst the milk heats, make your espresso shot.
  5. Just as the milk is about to boil, pour your espresso in to your cup and top with the heated milk. Mix.
  6. Top your delicious, warm pumpkin coffee with whipped cream, cocoa powder or nutmeg! Enjoy!

    Yummy! I love pumpkin spiced things. I’ll definitely try making my own pumpkin spice so I can add it to whatever I’d like.

    So awesome to meet a fellow coffee lover! I have two websites dedicated to coffee, all made out of sheer love. Thank you for this recipe, I am pinning it for future use.

    Our local Starbucks branches here in Oman have recently released a very nice Spiced Pumpkin Latte in time for Halloween 🙂

      It is so new to me I think they are amazing! I need to get creative and think of Christmas inspired flavour, maybe minced pie?!!
