    1. Best. Post. Ever!!!!! I love, love, looooove Starbucks Pumpkin Latte’s, so I can’t wait to try this recipe! I’m going to pin this too 🙂

      1. Summer — Ha! I’m a complete Starbucks addict myself. Let em know if you try this recipe. I can’t wait to hear how it turns out for someone else.

    2. Oh, no, that’s why pumpkin spice lattes are so delicious – 1 cup of sugar! Yikes! I do love my PSLs though!

    3. I am making this right now. Any thoughts on how long to simmer? Or how much to add to espresso to make it an actual latte? Thanks for the idea!

      1. When I worked as a barista, a shot of espresso was literally a shot glass of espresso, so a double shot, is two shot glasses 🙂 normal latte is one

    4. Oh, I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this recipe! Thanks so much for sharing it on my Foodie Friday Blog Hop. (Pinning!!)

      Have a great weekend and I hope to see you again next week.

      Melissa

      1. I don’t know why you couldn’t make it with Splenda. They have a version that you can use in baking so I know it can withstand the temperatures.

        1. I appreciate the recipe but…isn’t there supposed to be coffee or espresso in this? Kinda left us hanging at the pumpkin spice part..got no latte LOL

    5. This is delicious! I made the spice mix and added it to regular coffee and skim milk. I made several batches and canned them for friends, and I will be making a lot more of it because everyone is asking for refills! Bravo, and thanks for sharing this amazing recipe. PS- it tastes great in tea, as well!

    6. I made this today, I think I failed on the simmer part, and I added another scoop of pumpkin puree, because I made the pumpkin pie spice and it came out too strong! But in the end it still tastes good! I also made my own whipped cream by putting heavy whipping cream & vanilla extract in a jar & shaking it! I think it added the right amount of creamy ness to it

    7. wow, thanks for the recipe! yumyy! Thank you for sharing with OMHG Wordless Wednesday linky, have a great weekend!! co-host Evija from @Fromevijawithlove xx

    8. I must be the only one to never have tried one of these. Glad I can make my own.

      Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesdays, I hope you will join us next week.

    9. I am so excited about this. Adding the ingredients to my grocery list to try this weekend!

      Thanks for linking up to This is How We Roll linky party!

    10. I think these are amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing!! I made them for my mom and I this morning and we think they are amazing! However, next time I make them, I think I will cut back some of the sugar cause they are rather sweet. But I do love them! Thank you so much!! 🙂

    11. So. Just to clarify. 1 cup of sugar to 1/2 cup of coffee is ridiculous. This MUST be a typo right?
      I would think this makes a Pumkin Spice base and then add it to the coffee??? Unless you are a human-fly hybrid, and in that case never mind and enjoy!!!

      1. Actually, Jon. Most of the drink is made up of water and milk. (1 cup water, 2 cups milk) and then the coffee adds the needed coffee flavor. But this drink, while considered a coffee drink, certainly isn’t made up mostly of coffee!

    12. Ooooo Im going to the Bucks tomorrow, but I’m pinning this so that when I need my pumpkin latte fix at home, I can look this up and bring the Bucks into my own kitchen. Thanks for sharing, pinned!

      1. I know what you mean! I absolutely am hooked on Starbucks Chai Lattes — need them the whole year round. So I figured out how to make them at home and get my “special treat” on the weekends.

    13. I’m sooooooooo trying this!!!!!! Visiting from SITS from SAturday sharefest…gah, I know…it’s like several days later. The only time I can enjoy reading is when everyone is at home and work =)

    14. I was going to make this for a large group- 9 people. Could I go ahead and make the sugar/ water/ pumpkin puree and spices blend ahead of time? Would I refrigerate it? It would be easier to add the coffee and milk at the last minute and serve to guests. Thanks!

    15. Huge pumpkin spice fan! Tried this recipe but It was too sweet for my taste I just wanted more pumpkin! I did it a second time and used a half cup of pumpkin purée and 3 tablespoons of spice and then used a cheese cloth to strain without the excess pumpkin “pulp” and fell in love!

    16. I made it taste like the real thing, the only think I’m doing differently next time is using less sugar it was a little too sweet for me but still yummy??

    17. Can’t wait to give this one a try! Thanks for sharing with us at the Snickerdoodle Link Party! This will be one of my features this Saturday!
