Create the perfect pick-me-up with this Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe. Who needs Starbucks when you can make this flavorful fall-themed beverage at home? It is much simpler than you might think!
Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte
When it comes to my beverage of choice, lattes are at the top of the list. While you know I love my coffee, I also love the sweet taste of the coffee and frothy milk combined to create a drink that keeps me going on my most stressful days. If I were to say that I could do without my morning coffee, I would be lying, but this latte is a super close second. Not to mention adding one of these Homemade Cinnamon Rolls with Icing or these Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls (because there’s no such thing as too much pumpkin flavored goodness!). This is one beverage I love to have to help me get a jumpstart to my fall morning.
This recipe is one that I thoroughly enjoy because it contains added pumpkin flavor to make the latte taste even better. It is a great beverage to have when the leaves start turning colors, and summer is officially over.

Latte on a Budget
I prefer making this Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte over buying lattes from any of the chain coffee spots. I can save money while preparing the beverage at home. With the right ingredients, this beverage has such a fresh and fulfilling taste to it. The best thing about this treat is that it is the perfect special drink for breakfast, a dessert, or a special holiday treat!!
While I do not give this drink to my kids because they do not need to have the extra caffeine, this is one beverage that my husband and I like to drink often in the fall. This recipe only makes one, BUT you can easily double for you and the love of your life.
The Perks of Preparing the Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte
You probably already realize how much money you can save by making this Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte at home instead of ordering it from somewhere else.
- While the savings is certainly a good enough reason to start preparing this at-home latte, you can enjoy additional perks of preparing this beverage.
- For example, you can make it the way you want using either espresso or strong cold-brewed coffee.
- It only takes a few minutes to prepare the beverage by blending the ingredients and then pouring it over a cold cup of ice.
- I like to put mine in a reusable plastic coffee cup with a straw attached to it so that I can take my latte with me wherever I go.
- It is a huge convenience and a lot better for the environment than using a disposable cup.
Enhance the Flavor of Your Pumpkin Spice Latte Even More
The Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte calls for pumpkin puree, milk, and coffee, but you can add a few more ingredients to your latte for extra flavor. Some people like to add a spoonful of maple syrup to their lattes, while others like to sprinkle ground cinnamon on top because of how well it goes with the pumpkin flavor.
If you are dairy-free, you can use an alternative to cow’s milk. Almond milk is a bit too thin to create the perfect consistency, but macadamia milk or oat milk will work correctly to help you make the ideal Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte. You might even want to select one of the flavored options, such as vanilla oat milk, to give your beverage that extra sweetness.
