Starbucks fans – make this easy Pumpkin Spice Latte at home!

It’s fall (or close enough) and time for our favorite warm and frothy seasonal drink – the pumpkin spice latte! Whip up your own DIY version using real pumpkin puree whenever the mood hits.

This easy drink recipe is so simple to make, and it rivals any coffee shop. Not only that, but it’s so much cheaper to make your own at home, too!

Pumpkin spice is life… but actual pumpkin is better!

Unlike traditional pumpkin spice lattes, our version uses real pumpkin purée to get your fall flavor fix. I promise this will taste even better than using a syrup! Plus, it’s super easy to melt the purée with a little pumpkin pie spice along with your favorite type of milk.

Here are a few tips for creating the perfect pumpkin spice latte at home:

  • For an iced latte, freeze coffee in an ice cube tray and add to your drink. As the ice melts, the coffee flavor intensifies!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Enjoy! Thanks Bianca!

  2. Happy joy

    Wow ty sounds great I would also suggest may be extra work but adds a lot of flavor to buy a baking pumpkin bake in oven then use purée from real pumpkin makes home smell nice too. Ps you can freeze the leftover purée Thanks again:)

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great idea! Thanks!!

  3. Hub City Girl

    Yes, love the latte mug!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks!

  4. 50ShadesofLipstick

    Cool idea. Pumpkin spice lattes don’t even have real pumpkin in them, so this is definitely a step up! I love your DIY approach to home cooking! <3

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw THANKS <3

  5. Babymair

    Lina, this sounds so good, and …super easy. thx as always. keep up the good work and God bless

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      THANKS Babymair! <3 Enjoy!

  6. PrincessMom

    Another tip for the leftover pumpkin…if anyone is having issues “going,” pumpkin is a natural laxative! Our vet had me give the dog canned pumpkin and it worked like a charm. I remembered that tip when our daughter was born and always kept some pumpkin baby food on hand. 😉

    • Katrina

      Thanks for the tip! I’m sure it will come in handy for me.

  7. Kimberly

    I tried both recipes and both were yummy! For the bread, I added pecans and I made a cream cheese and cinnamon frosting to put on top and it is so good. Even the kids like it and they don’t normally like pumpkin flavored treats.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Way to go!! ❤️👊🏻 Sounds delicious Kimberly!

  8. Jessi

    This leave a lot of left over pumpkin; if you need another idea for using it? I add a can of pumpkin to my chili! YES CHILI! It adds nutrients, makes the chili thicker and no one EVER notices 🙂

    • Wren

      Or, I’m wondering if you could measure out multiple 2 Tablespoon chunks of pumpkin and freeze those, then use one whenever you want a latte? 🤔

      • Lana

        Yes that would work. Maybe in an ice tray?

  9. Katrina

    This is latte is AMAZING! I have a sweet tooth, so I added about 1/2 teaspoon more sugar and increased the pumpkin spice (too much came out). This definitely surpassed my expectations, and will save me SO much money!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s so great Katrina! I agree so 😋 YUM. Thanks for trying the recipe!

  10. Erin

    Anyone know how to make this into a Frappuccino?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I would probably add the pumpkin base to frozen coffee ice cubes in a blender.

  11. Elaine A. Kasten

    You can froth milk in a French press coffee maker, too. Works really well.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh great tip! Thanks for sharing 👍

  12. Evelyn

    Yummy!!! This is a Keto Friendly ?

  13. Erin

    Thanks!!

  14. thecornocopiaallotment

    Unusual combinations! I am always looking for new ways to use pumpkins!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks and enjoy!

  15. Molly Mi

    Hubby was complaining about the giant pumpkin pie from Costco taking up all the space in the fridge. I remembered this recipe and used it (minus the added sugar and extra flavorings) to make myself a nice PSL. Yum!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome!! And lol those pies are big 👍

  16. Linda

    This is amazing. I make it as a treat sometimes when my mom comes over to babysit the kids. Powers us through! I froze the remaining pumpkin into ice cubes, which I assume are around 1T each. Works great!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I love that idea! Great tip about freezing into ice cubes!

  17. awaysomewhere

    Yes! and you can have it year round.

  18. patricialavenz-goff

    Don’t have a milk frother to make lattes? No problem! I actually used my immersion hand blender to froth my latte, and it worked great! I don’t have either but maybe I can whip it up the old fashioned way with a whisk or a hand held blender.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s super smart – thanks for sharing 👍

  19. Paula Oehm

    Is there a way to use this with hot tea?

    • Ella

      I would just substitute your favorite tea in place of the coffee. I’m not a coffee drinker either, so I’m going to try it with tea and I’m sure it will be great!

  20. AngieM

    I don’t have a hand blender. Any other ideas? 🙁

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You could just use a small kitchen whisk for a couple minutes until frothy.

      • AngieM

        👍Thank you Lina

  21. Lpmousse

    Lina, I’ve been making this ever since I saw it on Hip2Save. My mom & I love it!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! Thanks for sharing that with me 🥰
