About Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte

There is nothing like a tall glass of chilled coffee on a cozy evening when you want to sit and relax with your family. This Starbucks Copycat Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte is my favorite for Fall and Winter.

Easy, quick, and unique, this one will surely ‘WOW’ you with its fall flavors.

As soon as the fall sets in, I make a big batch of my homemade Pumpkin Puree and Pumpkin Pie Spice and use them in my recipes in every possible way. From soups to curries to desserts, I add them to everything I cook.

Of all the recipes I make using pumpkin, this Starbucks copycat Homemade Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe is repeated as my husband and I are crazy about its taste.

It has a perfectly strong coffee flavor with a hint of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Sweetened with maple syrup and some whipped cream on top, this one is also perfect for your guests.

Although you can grab a glass of this goodness at Starbucks, I have many reasons why you should make it home.

  1. Homemade is less sugary and low in calories.
  2. You can customize it as per your taste. Use whichever milk you like, adjust the sweetness per your taste, and use any coffee instead of espresso if you don’t have an espresso machine.
  3. It is much more economical to make at home.
  4. It gets ready in under 5 minutes.

So get going and make yourself a tall glass of this refreshing Iced Pumpkin Latte, and thank me later.

Ingredients

Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Ingredients.

Espresso – Starbucks makes this iced PSL recipe using shots of espresso but you can use strongly brewed coffee too. Use your Moca Pot, South Indian Filter, or a regular brew machine to brew the coffee. French Press Cold Brew Coffee, Nespresso, or Aeropress coffee also works great in this recipe.

Milk – I like to use whole milk (full-fat milk) for a rich and creamy texture but you can use whichever milk you want to. Skim milk or low-fat milk also works great.

To make a vegan pumpkin spice latte drink, use plant-based milk (non-dairy milk) like oat milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, etc.

Pumpkin Puree – Use canned or try my homemade Pumpkin Puree recipe.

Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend – You can either use the store-bought one or try my homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice recipe.

Maple Syrup – Adjust the quantity according to your taste. Other sweeteners like white sugar, brown sugar, honey, or sugar-free options like stevia or monk fruit also work.

Whipped Cream – Skip it if watching calories.

Pro Tips By Neha

For a stronger pumpkin taste, increase the quantity of pumpkin puree.

You don’t have to wait for the espresso to cool down. Add it hot or cold; it’s up to you.

Make this delicious drink for kids by simply skipping the coffee.

Blend the ingredients with ice instead of pouring the coffee over the ice to make a slushy latte.

Do not confuse pumpkin puree with pumpkin pie filling. They are generally right next to each other in the grocery store, but the pumpkin pie filling has a lot of added sugar and spices, and the pumpkin puree doesn’t. You want the plain pumpkin puree with no additives.

Use leftover pumpkin puree to make drinks like Pumpkin Spice Horchata, Pumpkin Spice Milk, or Pumpkin Pie Spice Martini.
