Copycat Pumpkin Spice Latte

I updated my pumpkin spice latte recipe.  I posted one last year, but after some trials through the season I’ve altered it.  I can’t keep going to Starbucks (I said that last year too!).

Copycat Pumpkin Spice Latte


  • 3/4 cup fat free milk
  • 3/4 tablespoon canned pumpkin
  • 1-2 packet of sweetener or sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or 1/2 tsp for a spicier drink)
  • 1/2 cup strongly brewed coffee (or 1 nespresso pod, either lungo or regular)
  • Whipped cream, optional


  1. In a saucepan, whisk together milk, pumpkin, and sugar/sweetener on medium heat.
  2. Once steaming, mix in vanilla and pumpkin pie spice.  Whisk quickly so it develops a nice foam.
  3. Add to brewed coffee.
  4. Add whipped cream to the top (optional), with a dash of pumpkin pie spice.

I estimate the calories to be around 60-70 with this cup of pumpkin spice latte!

    I really want to try this. I have heard lots about pumpkin lattes and have even tasted one my hubby got, and it was awesome, but I can only drink Decaf coffee and I have never found any place that makes them with Decaf, so now I can do it myself. Thanks for sharing this……….
    I am excited………..
    Blessings, Nellie

    I would love to try this! My son works at Starbucks, so I should let him taste test it:)

    This sounds so yummy! I've been using World Market Pumpkin Spice coffee in my Keurig, and that tastes pretty good. I also have some zero calorie Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup that really enhances the pumpkin in the coffee. I know that it would be even better if I used some real pumpkin. Thanks so much for sharing and for including the calorie count.
