pumpkin spice latte

serves one

1 shot of espresso (about 1/4 cup)

1 cup milk

1 tablespoon canned pumpkin

2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (This makes one teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice: 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 1/8 tsp allspice, 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg)


1. Make the espresso.(I use my mini Bialetti, which I just fill with water, add finely ground coffee, and heat over the stove-top. Directions here.)

2. In a small saucepan, combine milk, pumpkin, and sugar. Cook over medium heat, until steaming.

3. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla and spice. Transfer to blender and pulse for about 15 seconds. (You can also use a whisk.) The mixture should be foamy.

4. Add to cup and top with espresso. I sprinkled a little extra spice on top.

Oh my gosh! So excited that somebody submitted this recipe! I like getting these from coffee shops, but don’t enjoy the price.

Simple and delicious! The extra spinkle ontop makes it just that much more pretty.

This is a wonderful recipe. I like putting canned pumpkin and coffee in the blender. I love how it gets just a little bit thick.

I actually haven’t even been able to find the time this fall to go to Starbucks and try a pumpkin spice latte. Now I guess I don’t have to! 😀 I can’t wait to make this.

Thanks so much for posting this! I will definitely be trying this one. Also thanks for the pumpkin pie spice ingredients as well, I can’t find this spice in Australia.

This makes me really, really want an espresso machine! I used to work as a barista and got used to constant access to gourmet caffeine…sadly no more. But someday…
