How to Make the Ultimate Pumpkin Spice Latte

As soon as September rolls round, I find myself getting so excited to start drinking the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte – it is literally my favourite of ALL TIME!! When I was scrolling through Pinterest, I saw lots of recipes for homemade pumpkin spice lattes so I thought I’d try to make my own. I absolutely love how this tastes, it’s sweet but not too sickly and literally tastes like autumn in a cup. This is the perfect drink for snuggling up in front of the fire, now that the weathers getting colder, ~and~ you don’t have to go all the way to Starbucks to buy one. 

Estimated Time to Make: 10 – 15 minutes

Serves: 1


  •  1 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of puréed pumpkin
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup(plus a drizzle more to top)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar
  • Whipped cream(optional)
  • Autumnal sprinkles(optional)DSC_1953DSC_1964


  1. Add the milk, pumpkin, maple syrup, sugar and spices into a saucepan and mix well.
  2. Gently heat the drink up on a low heat, stirring gently.
  3. Heat the mixture until it is just about to reach a gentle simmer before pouring into a cup.
  4. Top with whipped cream, maple syrup, festive sprinkles, a cinnamon stick or anything else that takes your fancy.
  5. Get all cosy with lots of blankets and autumnal candles and enjoy!
