Ingredient Notes & Substitutions
Oat Milk: Oat milk is our preferred non-dairy milk for pumpkin spice lattes because it’s rich and creamy without any weird after taste. However, feel free to use any non-dairy milk with this latte.
Strong Coffee: To make strong coffee at home, simply brew coffee with a 1 cup water to 1 tablespoon coffee grinds ratio. Or, sub in espresso if you’re able to!
Maple Syrup: We’re not completely crazy here, we do need ‘something’ to sweeten our coffee with. Maple syrup is the best way to do that, especially since it has a similar Fall flavor profile.
Side note: YOU might be able to also sweeten this drink with dates, however I can not add dates to my drinks (for now), because of an incident I had with a spider a few years ago when I was testing using dates in my vegan frappuccino recipe…
Pumpkin Puree: Yes, you do need actual pumpkin in a pumpkin spice latte. Don’t worry, it gets blended up with everything else.
Pumpkin Pie Spice: Pumpkin spice is what makes a pumpkin spice latte! If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice then you can make your own by using this pumpkin pie spice recipe.
Or just use some cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice to your own preference to get the Fall flavors you’re after.
How to Make a Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte
*Note that these instructions can be printed below
Step one: Make your strong coffee if you don’t already have some; I always do this by using 4 tablespoons of ground coffee with 4 cups of water, or 1 tablespoon coffee grinds to 1 cup water, in your coffee pot.
Step two: Add all of your latte ingredients to a saucepan and warm over the stove for about 5 minutes.
Step three: Pour into mugs, add your toppings and enjoy!
The Best way to serve a Pumpkin Spice Latte
This vegan pumpkin latte is best served warm! Even better if you have some non-dairy whipped cream and a cinnamon stick to top it!

How to Store
Pumpkin spiced lattes are best served ASAP, but you can save the leftovers!
Fridge: Store in an airtight container, I use a mason jar, with no toppings for up to 2-3 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove until warm. If the latte has separated and warming it up and stirring it doesn’t fix the separation problem, simply blend it for 30 seconds to get a frothy, silky cream vegan pumpkin latte again!
