Pumpkin Spice Coffee (Better than Starbucks)

Sharing is caring!

Easy to make a copycat version of the worldwide famous Starbuck’s pumpkin spice coffee. Now you can have your favorite coffee without leaving your home.

Confession time: I’m not a fan of the pumpkin spice craziness. Don’t get me wrong, I kind of enjoy it, but — yes, there is a but— there are so many species going on that I completely lose the pumpkin flavor. Not so cool.

I’ve tasted a trizillion time Starbucks’ ridiculously famous pumpkin spice coffee and have to say that I’m not impressed. Besides, it’s a little bit overpriced for a coffee — Starbucks lovers don’t hate me, please. You’d understand me if you came from the region with the best coffee on the planet.

So, one day I decided to make my own version without the overwhelming spice factor. In this recipe I only use cinnamon, but of course be free to use pumpkin spice powder to make your own copycat Starbucks pumpkin spice latte — it is waaay better than the watery Starbucks version.

Pumpkin cream

This is not exactly the healthiest beverage but the days of working out for the summer body are behind me and now I just want to proudly embrace my cozy clothes. Besides, I usually just make one of these scrumptious and yummy coffees once a week at most.

Also, you can make a healthier version using low-fat heavy cream and take away the whipping cream topping.

How to make the pumpkin spice creamer?

The heart of this cozy drink is the famous pumpkin spice creamer. All you need to have to make it is:

  • 1 tbsp canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Just mix them well and strain it if the canned pumpkin has too much pumpkin pulp. Then add it to your previously sweetened black coffee.

Personally, I prefer unsweetened canned pumpkin to avoid an overly sweet drink. I can have better control over how much sugar is in my drink.

After you try this recipe once, you will never go back!

  1. Some canned pumpkins have too many “strings” of pumpkin (the solid texture). If you want a smoother consistency you can strain the creamy mix before adding it to the coffee.
