My take on our corner coffee shop's seasonal pumpkin latte. I loved it so much I HAD to do something! You can use canned 'pumpkin pie mix' if you like, since it contains the pumpkin pie spice ingredients already. Top with nutmeg or cinnamon if you like. Enjoy!

I love the Starbucks pumpkin spice latte so I was eager to try this! Unfortunately I didn't really think it was the same. I would recommend making a pumpkin syrup if you need the pumpkin but I tried it with pumpkin pie spices and a little vanilla and it turned out very well. Read More

I went ahead and tried it despite the bad reviews and liked it! I added more milk and sugar (I like coffee more milk and sugar anyway!) And made a bunch in a crock pot for a party! Oh and just be sure to cook the pumpkin mix until frothy. Read More

I tried this recipie this morning. I used regular coffee instead of espresso since thats what we had. I Like it alot. It does remind me a bit of chai tea but it was very good. I'll definately make this again. Read More

I used pumpkin pie spice in place of the pumpkin. I felt a little weird using actual pumpkin in a coffee drink unless it's blended. It's tasty but not something I'd drink everyday. TIP: This makes a nice night cocktail with pumpkin liquor. I've had it a couple of times now and really enjoy it. Read More

I have never tried a pumpkin spice latte at a coffee shop, but i've been hearing alot about them latley. So I decided to make my own at home. I used just 1 tablespoon of sugar and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Instead heating the milk mixture over the stove I just wisked everything together in a mug and microwaved it for about 2 minutes. After the milk mixture was nice and hot I topped off the mug with some strong brewed drip coffee instead of espresso. I wasn't so sure about putting canned pumpkin in a latte, but it actually was very very good. Thanks for the great recipe!!! Read More

I loved the recipe. I did not make it exactly as written, I made my pumpkin puree without the milk and cooked it to marry the flavors, then made my espresso, added to the pumpkin puree and then added frothed/steamed milk. I like the frothed milk better, just my preference. This was a great recipe and it tasted very close to the commercial holiday lattes. Read More

This latte has great flavor but I didn't like the texture of the pumpkin so I tried using sweet potato baby food (they don't make pumpkin) and it turned out great! No little lumps! I also substituted 2 packets stevia for the sugar and it was yummy too. Read More

I made this recipe almost exactly. The only difference is I don't brew espresso at home. I made a strong instant coffee and used that. This was delicious! I did double the recipe. I may use just a tad less sugar next time or substitute Splenda but I will definitely be making this again and again. Read More
