Pumpkin Spice Latte No super-sweet sugar bombs here! Make your very own pumpkin spice latte at home with this healthy recipe that allows you to control just how much added sugar goes into your coffee drink. If you would rather have a vegan latte, use whatever nondairy milk you’d like. Real pumpkin puree, maple syrup, cinnamon and coffee—it’s fall in a mug! For a grown-up version, try spiking your PSL with bourbon, dark rum or a coffee liqueur such as Kahlúa. (If using a sweetened liqueur, consider cutting down on the maple syrup in the recipe.)

Servings: 1


  • ¾ cup whole milk (or unsweetened nut, soy, hemp or oat milk)
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, plus more for garnish
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 shot espresso or strong coffee (about 1/4-1/3 cup)


    Step 1

    Place milk in a small pot over medium heat. Whisk in pumpkin, maple syrup and nutmeg. Add cinnamon stick. Heat just to a simmer (do not boil). Remove from heat.

    Step 2

    Use a milk frother to create a foamy consistency, if desired. Place espresso (or coffee) in a mug; pour in the milk mixture. Garnish with the cinnamon stick and a pinch of nutmeg.
