Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Homemade pumpkin spice lattes in two glasses

This easy pumpkin spice latte recipe hits all the cozy vibe notes! Flavored with brown sugar and autumn spices, it’s perfect topped with a generous serving of whipped cream and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon.


  • 1 level tablespoon canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon light brown sugar (packed and leveled)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups coffee (brewed using 2 tbs per 1 cup of water)
  • 4 tablespoons half-and-half
  • Sugar to taste
  • Whipped cream


Begin brewing coffee. Brew two cups of your favorite coffee.

Make the pumpkin spice milk mixture. In a blender puree the milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, brown sugar and vanilla. Pour into a small saucepan and cook over low heat until the milk is warm and begins to froth slightly. (About 4-5 minutes.) Remove from heat.

For each serving: Pour 1/2 cup of the pumpkin mixture into your coffee mug. Add 2 generous tablespoons of half-and-half. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, then add 1 cup of brewed coffee. Top it off with a touch more ‘pumpkin milk,’ add sugar to taste, then cover with whipped cream and sprinkle with freshly grated nutmeg or ground cinnamon. 


TIP: You can also make a bigger batch of the pumpkin mixture in the blender and store it in the fridge for a couple days. Easy pumpkin spice latte in the mornings!
