Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

When you make your Pumpkin Spice Latte at home you know exactly what you’re drinking. No unknown ingredients. No funny flavours. And you can adjust the flavours according to what you like best. Make it sweeter, less spicy, add more whipped cream, less whipped cream. Use this recipe as a guide and make your perfect Pumpkin Spice Latte.

This is a warming drink that feels like a real indulgence. The pumpkin flavour is mild but noticeable and the pumpkin puree thickens the latte a bit. Molasses is the perfect sweetener since it complements the spice and is such a great pairing with coffee.

    I tried this recipe with cold brew coffee and coconut milk topped with Coco Whip and it was so decadently delicious! The subtle taste of molasses in the latte made it in my opinion. Keeping this recipe handy!

    This sounds awesome. I have a pumpkin that I am going to bake and will use some of the homemade puree by making lattes. :)
