My Skinny Recipe for Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte

It’s back…and so is my copycat recipe! Have you tried my skinny remake yet? It tastes pretty darn good. It’s smooth, the sweet-yet-spicy flavor is the perfect treat, this time of year.  No fancy equipment is needed either. If you’ve got a blender or wire whisk you can whip up this dreamy, hot drink.  The skinny for 1 latte, 69 calories, 1g fat and 2 Blue WW Freestyle SmartPoints, and 3 Green. Make a steaming cup, sit back and enjoy!

Ingredients

Ingredients for Pumpkin Latte:

  • ½ cup fat-free milk
  • ½ tablespoon canned pumpkin see storage tips
  • 1 package sugar substitute such as Stevia or Splenda or 1½ teaspoon sugar, if desired
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice plus more to garnish
  • ½ cup strong brewed hot coffee

Ingredients for Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons light or fat-free whipped cream
  • Dash pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon

Instructions

  • In a saucepan, whisk together milk, pumpkin, sugar substitute, and cook on medium heat, stirring until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. Transfer to a blender and process for 15 seconds until foamy. If you don’t have a blender, don’t worry about it. Just whisk the mixture continuously with a wire whisk until foamy.
  • Pour into a large mug. Add the hot coffee on top. Top with 2 tablespoons whipped cream and sprinkle with a little pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon on top.
  • Drink immediately.

Notes

Food Facts
Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is super popular this time of year. It’s the company’s most popular seasonal beverage of all time, having purchased more than 200 million beverages since it was first introduced in 2003.
Shopping Tips
Since creating this recipe, I bought an inexpensive handheld electric milk frother. I now use mine all the time. Not just for this latte but for all my coffee and tea lattes. There are many brands to buy at Amazon, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond and such. I bought mine on Amazon. It cost only $8.99.

Storage Tips
Transfer canned pumpkins from an opened can into a refrigerator-safe container that is not made of metal. Seal the container tightly either with its own lid or with plastic wrap. Store the container in the refrigerator. Use within five days. Discard any remaining leftover canned pumpkin after five days in the refrigerator.
You can freeze leftover canned pumpkins. Here are a couple of things to avoid freezer burn: Use zip-lock bags made for freezing. After filling the bag try to remove as much air as possible. If you use a container make sure to only fill it ¾ full and cover it with wax paper or plastic wrap before adding the lid. Pumpkin has a lot of water so it will expand when frozen.

Comments

  1. I love so many of your recipes but I’m always disappointed that I can’t Pin them. It is just too hard to keep up with paper copies.

  2. Thanks so much for letting me know Jan. I’m not sure why you’re having problems pinning my recipes. I do have a pin icon right above each recipe on Skinny Kitchen. Or, you can join me on Skinny Kitchen Pinterest page. Here’s the link: https://www.pinterest.com/skinnykitchen/boards/

    If you’ve already given both these ideas a try, would you mind telling me the exact problem so maybe i can fix it.
    Many thanks.
    My best,
    Nancy

  3. I love many of your recipes and appreciate the effort that goes into creating them but this drink had a medicinal taste to it and sadly, I had to dump it. I used Truvia so maybe it would taste better using real sugar. I’ll just have to go for the real thing and limit my Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes to once a week.

  4. Thanks Pam. I’m so glad you are enjoying many of my recipes! And, I’m so sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy this recipe.
    Wishing you all the best,
    Nancy
