The Best Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Lattes

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Fordham chapter.

While Starbucks has become more accommodating with their dairy free drink choices, subbing almond or oat milk into your seasonal drinks raises the price, and if you’re addicted to PSL’s like me it can add up fast. This week I’m sharing two different PSL and pumpkin cold foam recipes to make at home, one with coffee and one with matcha!

Pumpkin Spice Latte (hot or iced)

(hot or iced)

  • Mix 1 tbs pumpkin puree and 2 tbs maple syrup with 2 shots of espresso or coffee
  • Froth your dairy free milk with 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and pour over the coffee
  • Top with dairy free whipped cream and more pumpkin pie spice

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

  • Froth your dairy free milk with 2 tbs pumpkin puree, 2 tbs maple syrup, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and a splash of your favorite dairy free creamer
  • Pour over cold brew or iced coffee
  • Top with more pumpkin pie spice or add some whipped cream for an extra creamy drink
Pumpkin SPice Matcha (hot or iced)
  • Mix 1 tsp matcha powder with ¼ cup of hot water and mix until smooth
  • Froth together dairy free milk, 2 tbs pumpkin puree, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1 tsp vanilla, splash of your favorite df creamer
  • Pour the milk over your matcha and top with cinnamon or more pumpkin pie spice
Coffee Tips
  • For the frothiest drinks, I love to use a handheld or electric frother
  • Some awesome additions to your pumpkin drinks are the “nutpods” pumpkin spice creamer or the pumpkin/maple butters from Trader Joe’s
  • If you don’t have access to espresso, you can sub the espresso for cold brew or any hot, strongly-brewed coffee
  • For easy prep, I make my own cold brew or iced coffee for the week in a big batch with a French press and store it in a large container in the fridge.
