Easy Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

I think we can all agree that Pumpkin Spice Latte season is awesome.

Even if you’re not a PSL fan, odds are you like at least one of Starbucks’ holiday drinks and rejoice at the sight of those red cups come November!

Unfortunately, there’s a downside to these drinks: their ingredients. Conventional dairy products plus unnatural colors and flavors make the traditional Starbucks drinks a lot less appealing.

Luckily, they’re super easy to mimic at home – without any fancy equipment. And when you use organic milk, real pumpkin and warm holiday spices, you can enjoy a delicious pumpkin spice latte without hesitation or guilt.

Here’s my recipe. Happy sipping!

Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte
  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
  • ½ cup organic whole or 2% milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 6-8 ounces strong brewed coffee
  1. Whisk together the pumpkin, spices, vanilla, sugar and milk in a large mug. Heat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds or until very warm.
  2. Use a frother (like aerolatte) to make the milk mixture foamy, if desired.
  3. Pour the coffee into the mug and stir to combine.
  4. Enjoy!

    This looks so good. A PSL is something I look forward to all year long. I cannot do the Starbucks one any more though. So sweet and expensive. I love this REAL version!
