I liked pumpkin spice in the fall before Starbucks made it a trendy thing. My grandmother loved to make pumpkin pies. I will admit though, we never thought to mix it with coffee. If you’re cutting sugar or living a zero sugar or even a keto life, however, Starbucks is the enemy. Come along with me, friends! I’ve made a keto pumpkin spice latte and it’s everything you hope for!

Do you know what goes great with pumpkin spice lattes? Pumpkin KETO bites!

More Than One Way

By the end of this blog, I’ll have shown you three different ways to make this latte. I love them all. The first will be using sugar alcohols, like swerve. I think it worked best at being the most Starbucks-like. I’m drinking the leftover batch of this version as I type this, actually. The second version is with no sugar alcohols, but the creamer I used has 3 grams of sugar, so it counts against 3 of your carbs for the day to have one cup measured. The third version is spiked, so it’s a cheat day drink or a special occasion version to take to a party. 😉

Version 1: Keto Version

You need Swerve confectioners sugar for this version. This version comes out the most Starbucks-like. It’s sweet and tastes just like the expensive one you’d buy from them.

Ingredients:

  • Pumpkin puree
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Vanilla extract
  • Swerve confectioners sugar
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Strongly brewed coffee

Put all the ingredients into a blender and that’s it. If you have an immersion blender (one of those drink-specific blending contraptions) you can use that instead and save on dishes. If you do not have a blending device, you can use a whisk. You just need the puree and the powders to be smooth.

You can serve this hot or cold, even add Ice if you wish! If you want it hot, you’ll need to heat it for a few seconds as your milk and heavy whipping cream chilled your coffee.

Version 2: Just a Hint of Sugar

This version is very similar to the above, but I did not use the Swerve confectioners sugar and I substituted vanilla soy creamer in place of the vanilla almond milk. I found that the vanilla soy creamer was enough vanilla flavor, so leave out the vanilla extract in this version, also.

Ingredients:

  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Vanilla soy coffee creamer
  • Strongly brewed coffee

Same measurements of everything, and this version is just as good. It tastes a little more vanilla to me, but that is certainly not a bad thing!

Version 3: Spiked to Reward Your Adulting

This was fun for me. With all the ingredients I’d tried, adding different types of alcohol to the drink was entertaining. My favorite version turned out to include horchata. If you are not familiar, horchata is aromas of spicy bread and rice pudding. It’s sweet and has the taste of vanilla. It finishes with hints of cinnamon. It was the perfect addition to my pumpkin spice latte. If you really want to get the party going – you can get a coffee-flavored rum, also, to add. I used 1 oz of each or 2 oz of just one or the other.

Ingredients:

  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Vanilla soy coffee creamer
  • Strongly brewed coffee
  • Ricura Horchata Cream Liqueur
  • Koloa Hawaiian Rum Kauai Coffee Rum
