Vegan Pumpkin Spiced Latte (With Real Pumpkin In It!)

For many, the arrival of the pumpkin spiced latte is the official sign that fall is here. Save some bucks and calories and make your own plant-based version!

Technically, a latte is made with espresso and hot steamed milk; this iteration is not for the coffee snobs since it can be made without those "required" items. If you lack a milk steamer and an espresso maker, good-quality coffee and warm nut milk taste just as great.

Vegan Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Serves 2

  • 1 cup warm nut milk of your choice (steamed, if possible)
  • 2 cups freshly brewed coffee or 2 to 4 shots of espresso
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons maple syrup (depending on how sweet you prefer your latte)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla bean powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ⅛ teaspoon allspice

Preparation

In a small pot, over medium heat, combine the coffee, pumpkin, maple syrup, and spices. Whisk until smooth. Transfer to mugs, top with steamed or warmed milk, and ground cinnamon, if you wish.

Alternatively, you can place all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
