Homemade Healthy Pumpkin Spice Ingredients
You only need a handful of easy accessible ingredients to make PSL at home:
- Pumpkin Puree
- Dairy Free Milk
- Sweetener of your choice (I used maple syrup)
- Pumpkin Spice
- Vanilla extract
- Brewed Coffee or espresso
How to Make this Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
First, in a sauce pan, add coconut milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and pumpkin spice. Whisk together all the ingredients on medium heat on the stove top. Once it starts to bubble a little bit, turn the heat to low and whisk more until everything is well combined. Remove from the heat, stir in vanilla extract.
Then there you have the pumpkin spice latte creamer!
Second, add in your brewed cup of joe or 1 -2 shots of espresso.
You can either use a hand frother to make the creamer frothy before adding your coffee. Or you can just blend the coffee and creamer together in a blender (I use Vitamix).
Sprinkle some extra pumpkin spice or whip cream on top. And Enjoy!
Don’t forget to grab a Pumpkin Dessert to go with the PSL

Batch up this Pumpkin Spice Creamer
Besides the delicious fall flavors, my favorite part about this pumpkin spice latte recipe is that you can prep it as a creamer and use it for a week!
Simply pour the pumpkin spice creamer into a glass jar and store in the fridge up to 5 days. When you are ready to enjoy, you can either heat it up in a microwave or over the stove. I love using a frother or blender to make it extra frothy and creamy.
Healthier Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
Vegan and Dairy Free
In order to make this Pumpkin Spice Latte Vegan and dairy free, I used coconut milk. You can also use cashew, almond milk, oat milk or any kind of your preference.
Try making this super easy 2-ingredient cashew milk.
Instead of dunking a can of white sugar, or flavored syrup, this healthy PSL only calls for 1 -2 tablespoon of maple syrup.
Of course, you can adjust the amount depending on your sweet tooth preference.
Paleo and No Refined Sugar
Maple syrup is paleo friendly. In order to keep this PSL recipe paleo, you can also use equal amount of honey or coconut sugar.
Keto and Low Carb
You can certainly make this Pumpkin Spice latte Keto friendly as well by using Keto Sweeteners like Monk Fruit extract, stevia and keto maple syrup.
Pick your poison.
