Homemade Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe - Pumpkin Spice Latte 2018

Hi Bold Bakers!

It’s that time of year!! It rolls around fast but I’m ready for it this year. It’s when we start getting the Holiday spirit with our food, drinks, and decorations. One telltale sign that it’s the most wonderful time of the year is when Starbucks rolls out their red cups filed with their seasonal drinks like the Peppermint Mocha, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, and of course, the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Possibly the most popular Starbucks drink for the Holidays, the Pumpkin Spice Latte has the caffeine we crave with the kick of warm spice we love. And of course, the whipped cream on top doesn’t hurt. Whipped cream-topped anything is going to delicious. The drink is just a real treat after being out in the cold and when you need to warm yourself from the inside out.

The Holidays are a season for feasting, sharing, and indulgence. It’s a time for eating, drinking, and being merry. Nothing warms the soul more than warm drinks on a cold Fall night. This Pumpkin Spice Latte evokes not just your tastebuds, but your nose too. If there were ever a drink that tastes like Thanksgiving in a mug, this would be it.

These recipes multiply really well, so if you are having friends over make up a big pot and serve it hot with whipped cream on top. These drinks are so satisfying and decadent, they would almost replace dessert.

Only joking, nothing replaces dessert!

Fall greetings Gemma, from Kure Beach NC. We love this recipe for pumpkin spice latte! We use espresso coffee (that’s what we normally drink) and because the coffee is strong I add a 1/2 tsp of good vanilla extract to the latte. (I’ve also made this with freshly ground cardamom in place of the pumpkin pie spice and it’s delicious too). Before I add the coffee I turn up the heat and whisk the pumpkin & sugar in well so they have time to dissolve in the milk without worrying that the coffee will overcook and turn bitter.

Used can pumpkin purée. It tasted good, but settled to the bottom of the cup. What can I do to prevent it from settling down at the bottom? Thank you!

I don’t drink coffee and my mother in law has a heart condition and cannot have caffeine. So, we do this recipe without the coffee and sub with more milk- pumpkin spice crème latte 😉 Enjoy it’s our favorite!!

This is literally hands down better than Starbucks. It is the best drink I have ever made and once I picked it up I could not put it back down

Halloween is the beginning of summer for us BB Bakers🍦in South Africa. Any suggestions on how to make it into a Frappe? I think it could be a delicious cool alternative to a hot pumpkin latte. 🏖

At first I was a little bit skeptical that the recipe would live up to the Starbucks “label”, but boy was I wrong! This is such a wonderful and absolute delicious recipe, the quintessential autumn beverage. I would suggest for those who want to try the recipe to grind their own coffee beans for a more savory experience. Thank you Gemma for helping me give this recipe a second try and making it such a tasty and memorable experience for me and my Mum!
