Pumpkin Spice Oat Milk Latte

Sip this extra creamy and smooth pumpkin spice oat milk latte all fall long and enjoy a no sugar added, dairy free version of our favorite pumpkin flavored coffee drink.

Pumpkin Spice Oat Milk Latte

One of the things I definitely look forward to in the fall is pumpkin coffee! It’s pretty crazy how Starbucks and Dunkin release their pumpkin coffee drinks earlier and earlier each year to get people excited for the season!

I definitely do treat myself to coffee house versions of pumpkin drinks in the fall but also like to have a healthier version at home most of the time instead. Coffee shop versions are often packed with a lot of extra calories and sugar (and not made with real pumpkin!).

Sugar in Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks

A grande pumpkin spice latte with whipped cream at Starbucks has 50 grams of sugar! It is recommended that women only have 25 grams of less in a DAY — yikes!

How Often Should You Drink PSLs?

That said, I wouldn’t recommend having one every single day in the fall but rather treating them as a once in a while type of thing. There are definitely more nutritious ways to start your day which is where this pumpkin spice oat milk latte comes in!

Using Oat Milk in Your Pumpkin Spice Latte

It’s time to rethink our favorite fall drink!

My recipe vegan pumpkin spice oat milk latte has no added sugar but still tastes delicious and will give you all the fall feels because it’s super pumpkin-y! I use dairy-free oat milk that has a super silky soft and smooth texture that adds creaminess to anything you put it into.

I’m currently loving this Califia Farms Oat Barista Blend, and it’s the one I recommend using in this vegan latte recipe! I don’t feel like I need to add any sugar to it because the creamy texture makes it taste really rich like a “traditional” PSL would! Using almond milk is good too but doesn’t give it quite the same level of creaminess

Using plant-based milks like oat milk in place of dairy milk is good vegan alternative and a great for anyone who simply prefer non-dairy milk in their coffee. I can’t wait to hear what you think of this homemade latte recipe!

p.s. if you want a cold version of this pumpkin drink, be sure to check out my Starbuck’s copycat pumpkin cream cold brew recipe. It’s super easy to make at home and lower in sugar than the drink at Starbucks.

How to Order a Healthier PSL at Coffee Shops

  • Ask for 1 pump pumpkin instead of the usual. There are three pumps of syrup in a grande and that just makes it super sweet!
  • Ask for no whipped cream or light whip as they can be very generous with how much they put on top!
  • Add 1/2 or 1 pump of pumpkin spice syrup to a cold brew coffee.
  • Add 1/2 or 1 pump of pumpkin spice syrup to an americano.

These are good ways to still enjoy the taste of pumpkin with way less sugar, which is a win, win in my book.

How to Make a Pumpkin Spice Oat Milk Latte

  1. Start by making your coffee. Use your favorite brewed or Nespresso coffee in this recipe. Any unflavored Nespresso pod will work. Since I wrote this post Nespresso has come out with pumpkin spice cake flavored pods. To me they are spiced very subtly which I like a lot!
  2. Froth or blend the oat milk, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice. Combine oat milk, pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice in a milk frother. If you don’t have a milk frother, I recommend adding them to a blender and blending on high for a few seconds.
  3. Add the milk to your coffee. Pour the pumpkin oat milk mixture
  4. Top with extra pumpkin spice. Sprinkle a little extra pumpkin spice on top.
  5. Sip & Enjoy! Extra points if you pair it with a slice of this pumpkin spice latte bread!
