Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
Stopping for a drink at your favorite coffee shop every morning can get really expensive. And, it’s hard to know exactly what they put into their drinks.
I much prefer making my own beverages at home so I can control exactly what I add to them. They taste just as good (if not better) than the ones you can buy out.
How to make a healthier latte
One of the reasons your favorite drinks aren’t really good for you is that they are very high in sugar. If you want to make it a bit healthier, you can cut the sugar content.
Or, you can experiment with sweeteners like stevia to see how you like the taste. Why not try half and half to start and go from there.
You can also choose to use dairy-free milk like almond milk or even soy milk to cut the fat content. My daughter is gluten intolerant and frequently uses almond milk in her recipes.
Make sure that when you add the pumpkin, you choose puree and not pie filling. You can either use fresh puree or canned whichever is easiest for you.
Tools / equipment needed for this recipe
- Coffee maker
I find that using a blender is the easiest way to make this recipe smooth. But, if you don’t have one, you can use a whisk to mix the ingredients by hand.
What type of coffee is best?
You can really use any type you like in this latte recipe. I generally use a Bodum pour over to make mine because it’s waste-free and makes delicious coffee.
You can use traditional, decaf, or even espresso. It really depends on how much caffeine you want to have.
What can I add to it to bring this over the top?
If you want a really decadent iced pumpkin spice latte, you can add a few of these to your heart’s content. I don’t usually add the whipped topping unless I’m enjoying this as a dessert.
- Whipped topping
- A drizzle of chocolate syrup
How to make an iced pumpkin spice latte
It really doesn’t get much easier than this recipe. All you need to do is add all of the ingredients (except the ice) to your blender. Blend until well mixed and frothy.
Then, pour over ice and enjoy. Or, garnish with whipped cream, sprinkles, and cinnamon. Make sure you try it with homemade whipped cream.
Make sure that you taste your drink before you garnish it just in case you want to add a bit more sweetener.
How can I make this hot?
If you want to enjoy this beverage hot instead of cold, just don’t add the ice. It’s just as delicious either way.
Can I make this ahead of time?
If you want to mix this iced pumpkin spice latte recipe up the night before you can. Then, just place it in a shaker cup and shake to blend.
Add your whipped topping and ice and you are all set. This is a wonderful way to save time in the morning when you’re leaving for work.
You can easily double the recipe and make one for everyone in the house if you like. Just make sure that your blender is large enough to handle all of the ingredients.
