Pumpkin Spice Latte with Pumpkin Whipped Cream

Pumpkin Spice Latte with Pumpkin Whipped Cream: This homemade pumpkin spice latte tastes just like a coffee shop version! Plus it’s topped with homemade pumpkin whipped cream that just might be the best thing since sliced pumpkin bread.

Pumpkin Spice Latte with Pumpkin Whipped Cream | A Latte Food Pumpkin has been on my mind lately. It’s not just because of the pumpkin bread I made a couple weeks back. Or because of the pumpkin pie dream bars I made to kick off the fall season. Or all the Insta pictures of people at pumpkin patches. Or all of the pinterest pumpkin recipes I have been dying to recreate and make.

It’s been on my mind because I’ve been desperately trying to find a homemade pumpkin spice latte recipe that’s easy and quality.

Hashtag food blogger problems.

It’s just that I can’t justify spending almost four dollars on a sugary, calorie-laden drink from Starbs. Don’t get me wrong, Starbucks, I still love your peppermint mochas (and I can justify spending money on those because it’s CHRISTMAS and everything is magical and wonderful), but after your disastrous removal of mocha coconuts and spike in coffee prices, I’ve had to distance myself from you.

Thankfully, I have found a homemade, DIY-that-I-can’t-screw-up pumpkin spice latte recipe.

And the pièce de résistance of the whole delicious thing is hands down the homemade pumpkin whipped cream.

Oh yes, there is such a thing. Your fall will never be the same again once you taste it.

Pumpkin Spice Lattes with Pumpkin Whipped Cream | A Latte Food How does this concoction of fall glory begin?

Well, it begins with whipping heavy cream on high until it begins to thicken. At that point, turn off the mixer, add in pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, cloves, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar. Whip on high until it turns into whipped cream.

Over medium heat on the stove, warm milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, all spice, cloves, and granulated sugar until the mixture is hot but not boiling.

With a whisk, whip the milk mixture until it’s foamy, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Once it’s foamed, in a mug with a shot of espresso (or strong-grow-hair-on-your-chest shot of coffee), pour the milk on top.

Top with pumpkin whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and, if you’re like me and find holiday sprinkles adorable and irresistible, add them in (those maple sprinkles though, am I right?!). The more the merrier.
