Maple Sweetened Pumpkin Latte



This was my absolute favorite post to do. I’m sitting here drinking the latté you see in that photo.  I used to love Starbuck’s pumpkin spice latté.  I couldn’t wait for it to come back every year. When I went primal a few years ago I had to cut them out.  It was sad, but I opted instead for a whole milk latté. Lots of milk, but no sugar added. It was an occasional treat. My husband continued to get his pumpkin spiced latté now and then I’d steal a sip here and there, because…well, it’s pumpkin.  However, my palate changed, and soon it became too sweet.  I genuinely didn’t like it anymore.  I still missed it’s pumpkiny goodness though, and now I have my own version.

This maple sweetened pumpkin latté is absolutely not as sweet as Starbuck’s, but if you’ve been paleo/primal as long as I have it will be sweet enough.  It also has real pumpkin in it..WIN!  If you’re not doing dairy, please check out my friend Kristen’s recipe for whipped cream over at Mix Wellness.

Prep Time
20 min
  1. 2 cups of fresh coffee
  2. 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  3. 1/4 cup maple syrup
  4. 1 tbsp cinnamon
  5. 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  6. 1/2 tsp clove
  7. 1/4 cup whipping cream
  8. 2 tbsp maple syrup
  1. Brew 2 cups of coffee (up to the 4 cup line in your regular coffee maker.)
  2. While your coffee is brewing, whip up some whipping cream and maple syrup in a separate bowl. Pour your whipping cream, and 2 tbsp of maple syrup in a bowl. Mix with a whisk attachment on hand blender. This should only take a few minutes until you have the right consistency.
  3. In a separate bowl, add the pumpkin, all the spices and just a little of the brewed coffee and blend well either in a blender or with a hand mixer. Add those contents into your coffee pot and stir.
  4. Pour into cups, and top with your whipped cream. Enjoy!

  1. I’m sharing this recipe not because I’m a coffee lover but I know my friends are and anything to get them out of the Starbucks line and into their kitchen making their own from real food ingredients is a plus in my book. Pinned. =)
