What Do I need to make a Pumpkin Spice Latte?
Pumpkin Spice Flavors. This easy pumpkin spice latte recipe uses homemade pumpkin pie spice and homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup. Using homemade spices and syrup really makes a big difference when you are making this Starbucks copy cat recipe.
Coffee or Espresso. You can use either one and you can also use cold brew to make it an iced pumpkin spice latte.
Whipped Cream. While optional I do love putting homemade whipped cream on top.
What are substitutions that I can make?
Change up the milk. You can use any dairy milk or plant based milk in this recipe. I used oatmilk for the initial testing of this recipe and it tasted amazing. You can even use heavy cream or half and half for a richer flavor.
Make it Weight Watchers Friendly. If you are wanting to make this one Weight Watchers Friendly, use 2 tablespoons of Torani Sugar Free Pumpkin Spice Syrup instead of homemade pumpkin spice syrup and skim milk instead of whole milk and it is just 4 Weight Watchers SmartPoints!
Make it sweeter. I think the drink is sweet enough, but you can also a small amount of white sugar or brown sugar to make it sweeter.
Change up the coffee. You can make this an iced pumpkin spice latte by using cold brew coffee or chilled hot coffee. You can use expresso or coffee depending on your flavor preference.
Can I make the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte with a non-dairy milk?
Yes, you can make the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte with different non-dairy milk. Depending on which milk you choose, it will impact how well it will froth. Almond milk is a great substitute as it will froth well just remember to shake first.
How to Store Pumpkin Spice Latte
Starbucks Pumpkin Spice is best served immediately. If you wish to store it, mix the expresso, pumpkin spice syrup, and pumpkin spice together and allow it to cool, and then refrigerate. When you are ready to enjoy froth the milk, reheat the coffee mixture and assemble the drink. Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte can be kept in the fridge for 2-3 days.
I do not suggest mixing the milk foam with the expresso if you plan on storing it in the fridge for later as the foam will deflate if not drunk immediately.
What is the best way to Froth Milk?
Milk can be frothed in many different ways. From a simple whisk and some arm power to a steam attachment on most espresso machines. If you are looking for a powered option, you have plenty to choose from: handheld frother wand, whisk attachment on your immersion blender, blender or stand alone frother.
Do I need both the Pumpkin Spice Syrup and the Pumpkin Pie Spice?
This is the optimal combination of spice and sweetness that I have found for the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Adapting the syrup and spice will allow you to adapt it to your preferred flavor.
