DIY – Pumpkin Spice Latte


Hey !

This post is for all the sweet tooth autumn lovers : it’s the very well known Pumpkin Spice Latte !




I have to say that the first time that I heard about it, I was very curious about this “pumpkin spice” thing, and then very disappointed to find out there is no actual pumpkin in it. How does it make sense to call something by a fruit that is not even used to make the said thing ?


But anyways as I saw all the hype about it every year, I decided that I needed to try it !
So without further ado, here’s my take on it :


The Ingredients :

For a single Mug :

  • 250 ml (1 cup) of Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Puree (I like my Pumpkin Spice Latte to actually taste like pumpkin)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Sugar (I use stevia)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Expresso (I didn’t add it because I don’t like coffee, but that’s the actual recipe)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Pumpkin Spice (in France we call it “Quatre Épices”)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • Optional : a hint of Coconut Cream



Before Starting :

If you can find a can of pumpkin puree as in the US it’s perfect, but if (like me) you live in a country where this doesn’t even exist, you can make your own pumpkin puree ! :

– Peel your Pumpkin, cut it in half, and take the seeds out with a spoon
– Cut the pumpkin into pieces and put them in a pan with water. Bring it to a boil
– Cook it until soft, and drain the water
– Use a blender to make puree out of it !




The Recipe :

  1. In a small pan on low heat, add the milk, the pumpkin puree, and the sugar until warm
  2. Prepare and expresso if you’re going to make the traditional latte
  3. Turn off the heat, add the coffee, vanilla, & spices. Stir well.
  4. Put the latte into a mug, and cover with whipped cream, or as I did with some coconut cream (it is really delicious). Sprinkle some spices on top




And done !

    Sweet! My wife was just asking about the pumpkin spice craze and since we (like you) don’t have pumpkin pure available, I was ready to give up. But now that you’ve shown us how to make it, it’s going on the shopping list this week!

    Love pumpkin. I am thinking (pretty sure) we have the pumpkin puree (Canada) as pumpkin pie big here for our Thanksgiving which was in October.

    Ohhhh myyy this looks amazing! I have never tried a Pumpkin Spiced Latte, Im not even sure where I would get one in the Uk. I really love the sound of it though, and latte drinks are always a winner with me. I wonder if we can get pumpkin spice in the Uk? Im definitely going to try this, thanks for sharig x

    I tried a pumpkin spiced latte from Costa Coffee a few week ago for the first time…I didn’t like it, it was too sickly sweet! :O. Your’s looks good though as it’s not all sugar, it’s a nice touch to use real pumpkin :). Lovely pictures 🙂

    I have to say I’m not a coffee person, but anything that is festively spiced is appealing at this time of year!

      When winter and Christmas are around, it feels cozy to drink a warm latte by the fireplace ? I don’t put coffee in it as I don’t like it, maybe you’ll prefer having it that way too ? Thanks for sharing Carol ! ?
