It's that time of year! Pumpkin EVERYTHING! This is my Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte (copycat) recipe I have created using my Nespresso machine.Tuesday launched Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte season. Apparently, there was some kind of scandal (I use the term loosely) and some of the stores were serving them as early as last Sunday (GASP)! Everyone deserves a little piece of this heaven in their home.

I am a huge Starbucks fan, mainly because I love their espresso and being able to do mobile ordering. I usually order my drink after dropping off kids, drive 5 minutes to the store, then grab it waiting for me at the counter. So brilliant!

But some days, I don’t want to get out and just want to creep to my kitchen and make my latte. I have been using Nespresso for quite some time, and it makes incredible Americanos or espressos. Therefore, I made it my mission to provide you with Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte copycat recipe! They go so good with Sabrina’s snickerdoodle cookies.

Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte (copycat) Ingredients:

  • 2 cup whole milk

  • 3 – 5 cubes of sugar depending on sweetness level

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 shot Nespresso or other espresso
  • 1/4 cup cream for topping (optional)

Directions:

  1. Mix together milk, pumpkin puree, & sugar in a pot over medium heat. Warm until hot, but do not boil.
  2. Once hot, remove from heat and stir in the pumpkin spice, cinnamon, vanilla, & espresso.

Ingredients

  • 2 cup milk whole
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 3-5 cubes sugar depending on how sweet you want it!
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 shot espresso or strong coffee
  • 1/4 cup cream optional

Instructions

  1. Mix together milk, pumpkin puree, & sugar in a pot over medium heat. Warm until hot, but do not boil

  2. Once hot, remove from heat and stir in the pumpkin spice, cinnamon, vanilla, & espresso. 

  3. Divide between two mugs and top with whipped cream.

Trial and Error Tips:

  • Use whole milk, but if you must, you can use 1 %… It really just tastes better with whole milk.
  • I don’t prefer sugar in my drinks, so add more cubes to achieve your level of sweetness! I also loved the flavor of using dark brown sugar. Definitely a must try.
  • I love my Nespresso pods, but you can substitute with Keurig coffee or even your regular drip coffee. I love stronger coffee for this recipe.
