This Pumpkin Spiced Latte is the perfect way to welcome autumn and our version is low in calories and great if you’re following a plan like Weight Watchers.

We love all things pumpkin spiced, but the lattes that you can buy in high street coffee shops are often packed full of calories and sugar – and don’t forget about the price!

An added bonus of making your own Pumpkin Spiced Latte is that you can control everything about it; the strength of the coffee, the sweetness, the amount of pumpkin and the amount of mixed spice. Not to mention that if you make it this way, you’re actually using vegetables in your drink!

This recipe is super quick and really easy – the perfect treat for an autumn day!

This Pumpkin Spiced Latte recipe is suitable for gluten free and vegetarian diets.

For the latte

Step 1

Add the pumpkin puree to the milk and whisk well until it’s mixed together well.

Step 2

You can either heat the milk and puree in the microwave, add the sweetener and stir. Then using a milk frother whisk the latte until there’s a decent froth, or using a milk steamer, steam the milk, puree and sweetener until it’s hot and there’s a good froth on top.

Step 3

Add the coffee, sprinkle some cinnamon on top and serve.

For the pumpkin puree

Step 1

Place the diced pumpkin or squash in a microwavable dish, cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes 30 seconds.

Step 2

Put the cooked pumpkin, cinnamon, mixed spice and coffee in a food processor and blitz until smooth. You can do this in advance and leave it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.

How do you know when your Pumpkin Spiced Latte is ready?

You should mix your pumpkin puree with your milk until it’s well mixed.

Whether you use a microwave or a milk steamer, you’ll need to make sure that your milk, puree and sweetener mix has a good froth on the top before you add the coffee.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

How long can you keep this Pumpkin Spiced Latte in the fridge?

You can store your pumpkin puree in the fridge for about a week in a container with a lid.

Can I freeze this Pumpkin Spiced Latte?

No, we don’t recommend freezing this recipe.

How do I reheat this Pumpkin Spiced Latte?

Simply add your stored puree to the milk and then heat as specified in the cooking instructions.

I don’t have a microwave, is there another way to make the puree?

    LisaWednesday 16th September 2020

    We’ve not tried it, but you could do it in a pan on the stove. You would need to put the pumpkin in the pan with a few tbsp of water and cook it until the pumpkin is starting to become mushy. As we’ve not tested it we can’t guarantee the results or the cooking times. It will be a case of trial and error I’m afraid.

I have 3 large pumpkins (only one carved on Halloween) my 3 teens wanted them, I ended up carving one. I’ve pureed the flesh so it’s great to see these pumpkin recipes. Going to make the pumpkin cake for taster tomorrow. Can’t wait to try the spiced pumpkin latte – going on amazon now to get a milk frother lol

Hiya – can I just check I’ve got the recipe right? there is a shot of coffee in the purée mixture itself, as well as in the drink when you make it?
