  • 2 cups milk, whole, 2%, or skim
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin puree, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice
  • 1/2 cup hot brewed strong coffee (I use brewed instant espresso)


  • sugar, to taste
  • whipped cream
  • nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, or cinnamon, for garnish


  • In a saucepan whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, and light brown sugar.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until hot and steamy. DO NOT BOIL.
  • Remove from heat, whisk in the pumpkin-pie spice and the vanilla.
  • Whisk in the coffee and continue to whisk until frothy.
  • Divide between two coffee mugs.
  • Taste and adjust sweetness to taste.
  • Garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

If using Microwave

  • Pour the milk, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, pumpkin-pie spice, and vanilla into a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Cook for 1 minute to 1 minute 30, or until milk starts to rise up and is frothy.
  • Pour into mug, add the coffee, garnish with whipped cream and nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, or cinnamon.
  • Serve hot.


  • Pumpkin Spice Latte tastes best with Whole Milk, but you can use whatever you prefer. 
  • Add sugar to taste; if you like a sweeter coffee, stir in more sugar after you've heated up the milk mixture. 
  • If you want a stronger pumpkin flavor, add more pumpkin puree.
