Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Author: Joy Kincaid


  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cups strong, hot brewed coffee
  • whipped cream and cinnamon


  • Start the coffee brewing.
  • In a medium saucepan, stir together the milk, sugar, and pumpkin. Heat over med/low heat until hot but not boiling, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in the spices, vanilla, and coffee.
  • To make the whipped cream, we use about 2 cups heavy whipping cream and sweeten with 4 Tbsp. sugar (you can also use an alternative like Gentle Sweet or stevia to sweeten). Add 1 tsp vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • Ladle your homemade pumpkin spice latte into mugs and garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.


If you like your latte very sweet, you may need to add more sweetener to this recipe, as it isn't overly sweet.
We like this recipe best with whole milk, but you can also use non-dairy milk alternatives (such as almond milk). You can also use alternative sweeteners such as stevia, coconut sugar, maple syrup, etc.
