Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

pumpkin latte India

It is getting colder with the winters setting in and I am trying to explore various versions of coffee…. Naah!! Not in so called Coffee house brands but at home… Some time back I had made egg coffee and it was just superb to taste. I still don’t know how many of you tried to make it. Read recipe here.

I had always wanted to have coffee but with something and since I am trying to lose some festive weight so can’t have any cookies or those yummy hot cup cakes with it so thought how about including something healthy in coffee. This was the time when I heard about StarBucks’ Pumpkin Latte. Like so many other people I too thought that StarBucks is making coffee with pumpkin but soon after checking the ingredients I realised that their Pumpkin Latte had no pumpkin as such but just pumpkin pie spice. And this gave me an idea to try including pumpkin as an ingredient in coffee…(If egg can be included then why not pumpkin?) So I tried and frankly speaking I loved it. Now please don’t call me crazy… (though I take that word as a complement because I believe you cannot do anything different till you decide to be crazy.)

Anyway here is a detailed account of my Pumpkin Latte experience.

  • Pumpkin puree  –  2 tbsp

  • Pumpkin Spice – 2 tsp

  • Thick Cream   –  4 tsp

  • Instant Coffee  – 2 tsp

  • Boiling hot water   –  2 mugs

  • Stevia to taste

Method

Before making this coffee we need to prepare Pumpkin pie spice and Pumpkin puree.

Pumpkin Puree

  • Boil yellow pumpkin (as it is sweeter) in pressure cooker.

  • When it cools down a bit puree it in blender.

  • Puree has to be warm for a cup of hot pumpkin latte.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Take Nutmeg, Cinnamon sticks, Green Cardamom and Cloves and grind them in a dry grinder in a fine powder form. The traditional recipe includes another ingredient called ‘Allspice’ which is not easily available so I kept it simple and easy with Indian ingredients.

Note- Please keep your coffee strong enough to get the flavour of spice to the fullest.

If you love to brew your own coffee then just add Stevia to cream and blend well with pumpkin puree.

If you are on a low carb diet then there is no harm in adding an egg also to your Pumpkin Spice Latte and have it as evening snack. It makes a great healthy low carb deal with some fiber added.

When are you going to try this flavorful Pumpkin Spice Latte?
