Lightened Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

PRINT Recipe


  • 2 cups almond milk – I like unsweetened vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute – I use liquid Stevia when cutting back on sugar
  • 1 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 espresso shots [recommend the Dolce Gusto – seriously, great espresso!] No espresso? No problem. Just add black coffee
  • Optional – light whipped cream


In a small saucepan on medium heat, add almond milk, pumpkin and sugar. Stir obsessionally, until it begins to steam.

Remove from the heat and add vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. With a whisk, whip the mixture until it’s nice and foamy.

Divide into two coffee cups and top each with a shot [or two] of espresso.

For decoration and a little sugary treat, top with whipped cream and sprinkle with a little pumpkin pie spice.

Serves 2

    There is something so comforting about a big latte. We’ve been having some unseasonably warm weather here, but I know that one of these days I’ll want to partake in one of these.

  • Casey

    Yum!!! I have been looking for a great pumpkin latte recipe, this looks delicious!!

  • Carissa

    I tried another recipe for a pumpkin latte this morning and it was awful. This sounds much better – you cooked it and have less spice. I’ll try again!

  • Ashley

    Yum!! Love a homemade version!

  • Bev Weidner

    I might need to wait a few minutes for it to cool, so I can pour it ALL OVER MY FACE.

    Lisa, this pumpkin spice latte is calling my name! What a lovely fall season drink to cozy up to, and a low calorie alternative to the Starbucks indulgences! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  • Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola

    Oh my gosh this looks delicious! I have been wanting to try a pumpkin spice latte like everyone has been talking about but I can’t do dairy and am allergic to soy! This is my answer! Can’t wait to make it πŸ™‚

  • Maria

    Perfect drink for this time of year!

    Thanks for sharing a lightened up version of a favorite! As a Nutritionist, I’m always looking for great recipes like this!

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    This looks great and I’ve been making my own at home, too. Nothing like being able to nurse my pumpkin addiction and save money$$ and do it at home πŸ™‚

  • Jenn from Much to My Delight

    I’ve been making them at home too (a Starbucks employee actually gave me a gallon of the syrup, which is definitely not “lightened”!), but I love your inclusion of almond milk! I think I’ll be trying that tomorrow. Thanks for the great idea, Lisa:)

  • Stephanie

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I LOVE pumpkin spice latte’s, but can’t hang with the amount of sugar in them (from Starbucks anyways.). I will be trying this VERY soon!
