How To Make Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Home

How To Make Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Home

August 27, 2020

One of the first signs that fall is approaching is our cumulative tears when we realize that summer is coming to an end, but also, the reappearance of the long awaited pumpkin spice latte at your favorite coffee chains. With its sweet aroma and blend of spices that remind us of pumpkin pie, it’s hard to resist this serving of fall in a cup.

If you’re a PSL fanatic, you’re probably aware that sipping this drink all season long can put a dent in your budget. Today, one of our Flippers and coffee fanatic, Irene Sálamo, is sharing three pumpkin spice latte recipes that you can make at home, without breaking the bank. The best part? You don’t need any fancy equipment.

By using appliances that you already have in your kitchen and flavor-packed natural ingredients, we guarantee that you’ll fall in love with these recipes (see what we did there?).

Let’s get started!

Recreate this classic at home with all of the creaminess and flavor of your favorite coffee chain’s PSL using a pot, a whisk, and a blender.

Directions:

  3. Whisk constantly until the mixture starts slightly bubbling, around 5 minutes. Don’t let it boil.
  4. Pour the mixture into a blender and remove the top cap from the blender’s lid to let the hot steam out during blending.
  5. Blend until the mixture becomes frothy, around 1 minute.
  6. Pour the brewed coffee into two mugs, and then pour the milk mixture.
  7. Optional: top with whipped cream and sprinkle with more pumpkin pie spice.

Light Pumpkin Spice Latte

This version of pumpkin spice latte is completely plant-based, and just as delicious. By using almond milk and maple syrup instead of 2% milk and sugar, this alternative is great for those who want to cut back on calories.

Pumpkin Spice Tea Latte

If you’re not a coffee person, you can still be part of the pumpkin spice latte craze with this tea latte version. Irene used chai tea for this recipe because of its cinnamon flavor, which pairs well with the pumpkin pie spices, but any black tea will work just as well. This recipe uses raw honey instead of sugar to give it a floral sweetness.
