Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte
Up until this recipe, I hadn’t made a homemade dairy free pumpkin spice latte. One morning I had about 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree left after I made my gluten-free pumpkin pancakes. I hate wasting food, so I decided to experiment and make my own vegan pumpkin spice latte. I rifled through my fridge to see what other ingredients I had readily available.
Right away I spotted the coconut creamer.
Then I remembered that just last week I made up a fresh batch of pumpkin spice for the blog. Perfect. Making your own pumpkin spice latte wasn’t hard, I just needed to find the right ingredients to motivate me to make one.
When I make homemade lattes I prefer to use a local brand of organic coconut creamer, but you’re welcome to use your favorite dairy free vanilla creamer. I used to purchase Pumpkin Spice Latte’s from a very famous, busy, high profile coffee shop (err-hem, Starbucks). But between the initial cost, and “upgrading” to soy, It was running me over $4 each time.
That is WAY to much to spend on a frothy beverage. Think about it, if you purchase one a day, that’s over $1200 a year in beverages. Yikes. Just make your own vegan pumpkin spice latte for a fraction of the cost.
Ingredients in vegan pumpkin spice lattes
- 1/2 cup coconut creamer, coconut milk, or your favorite dairy-free milk
- 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree
- 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin spice
- 1 cup strong coffee or 2 shots espresso per mug
You can use your dairy-free milk of choice in this dairy free pumpkin spice latte.
How to make a vegan pumpkin spice latte
- Add the coconut creamer, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice to a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring almost to a boil, stirring constantly with a whisk.
- Continue to whisk until it starts to froth, about 1 minute.
- Remove from heat and distribute between two coffee mugs (or you could make it a “grande” and just double up).
- Add 1/2-1 cup of strong coffee or 2 shots of espresso per mug.

We work hard for our money (and so do you) and I don’t want to spend it at the coffee shop. I’m going to keep making vegan Pumpkin Spice Lattes at home, and save my money for something else. Now that I know how simple it is to make my own coffee and dairy-free pumpkin spice latte’s at home, I may never go to a coffee shop for one again.
