CrockPot Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Day 293.

Skip the coffee house today and make pumpkin spice lattes at home. This recipe really does taste like the real thing----even though it doesn't leave a fluorescent orange stain when you dribble it down your sweater.

updated 11/23: I just learned that the coffee house Pumpkin Spice Lattes are not gluten free. Yet another reason to make them at home!


The Ingredients.
each batch is for 2 people. If you are making a bunch for a full house, you're going to need to do some math!
:-0


2 cups milk (I used 1%) (yes, dairy free is OK!)
2 tablespoons pure canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla (not a typo. I really do mean tablespoons)

--1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
OR: 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon cloves, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, and a teeny tiny pinch of ground ginger

--1/2 cup brewed espresso or 3/4 cup strong brewed coffee

--garnish with whipped cream (optional)

Homemade, gluten free, pumpkin spice latte without funky chemicals or aftertaste.



The Directions.

This will make enough for 2 people to have a big mug with a bit leftover. If you are having friends over, adjust the recipe accordingly. 

I used a 4-quart crockpot, but as small as a 1.5 quart will work with these amounts.

Add the coffee/espresso and milk to the crockpot. Whisk in the pumpkin, spices, sugar, and vanilla.

Cover and cook on high for 2 hours if everything is cold. Whisk again.

Ladle into mugs, and garnish with whipped cream and additional cinnamon. I added a cinnamon stick to be fancy.

(if I rinse it off, can I re-use it? It seems wasteful to toss.)


The Verdict.

Adam and I really enjoyed these. We had them for breakfast yesterday, and the kids were jealous.

It would be fun to put this out for the adults at a Halloween party, holiday gift-wrapping party, or to serve guests while you're waiting for the turkey to cook.

I'm thinking of making some pumpkin cookies with the leftover canned pumpkin.

PS: If Pumpkin Spice Latte isn't your thing, that's ok! Here are all the OTHER COFFEE House recipes you can make with your trusty crockpot slow cooker! :-)

Fun and easy way to get your Pumpkin Spice Latte fix without any weird chemicals!

    What size crock pot did you use?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I used a 4-quart (I just updated the post, too, thanks for pointing it out)---but any size 1.5 quarts and up would work with these amounts. If you are going to serve a crowd, opt for a bigger size.

  18. Sounds delish! I am hosting a Pumpkin Carving party next weekend, and this will be a perfect addition! Question though - the vanilla. Is it cooking vanilla (the brown stuff)or vanilla syrup like you'd buy at Starbucks?

    Thanks!

  21. Re: the cinnamon stick, I think you could wash and reuse, although I do it with my mulled cider recipe and yours was in a milk based drink. Hmmm. I usually rinse it off in the sink and then keep it in the fridge until the next use- I can get three or four uses out of it until it starts to fall apart. Clever, or just REALLY REALLY cheap? You decide! :)

  22. I really like you blog. I just made your Korean Ribs recipe the other day and it was really good. Tomorrow I am going to try buffalo chicken lasagna. I am loving my crock pot. Thanks for all of your good ideas.

    I don't drink coffee at all so I wanted to try and make this but use Pero (like Postum)instead of the coffee. Do you think that may work? It's dark and has rich flavor. I don't know.

    ReplyDelete
  23. SO, I wonder if you could use Hot Chocolate instead of coffee?

  32. Fabulous ... anything pumpkin and I'm in. I just snagged a pumpkin pie martini recipe last week off another favorite blog of mine (www.noblepig.com). I've baked my second pumpkin in a week and so far have made crustless pumpkin pie and several batches of pumpkin bars (both recipes GF). How about giving us a recipe for gingerbread latte next week? ;-) I'll add to the chorus ... you are very much appreciated, Stephanie!

  40. Hi Stephanie. I've been stalking your blog for some time now and enjoy it thoroughly. I've gotta share this conversation that took place between my mom and I today (so sorry for the length):

    In the crock pot a pork tenderloin is roasting away. Sitting on the counter by the crockpot is the recipe for Pumpkin Spice Latte that I copied down from your blog today. (I'm sipping on it right now and it is delish!) So here is how the conversation went:

    Me: Let's get some pumpkin at the store after Wade wakes up so we can make the coffee recipe.

    Mom: Yes, sounds good, that would be a good excuse to go to Target.

    Me: (motioning towards the recipe on the counter) You know, I bet you could just make that in the coffee pot to save time.

    Note: remember the recipe is sitting right by the crock pot.

    Mom: (spinning around at the speed of light to face Roberta) What!?! In the coffee pot?

    Me: Yah, in the coffee pot. You just need to heat it up.

    Mom: Gee, I didn't think you could do that. (Pausing with extremely puzzled look across her face) You mean cook the pork tenderloin in the coffee pot?

    This sounds great! I can't have sugar, so they pumpkin spice lattes that are all over coffee houses this time of year are off limits and buying a bottle of sugar free pumpkin spice flavored syrup over the internet is a bit wasteful for one person. I am looking forward to making this with splenda and using the leftovers for some pumpkin muffins. Mmm.

  49. We made these last night..doubled the recipe added a little more pumpkin and used decaf coffee (in case the kiddo wanted some). The hubby and I loved it. The kid is a little weirded out by warm drinks... that just left more for us :)

  50. OMG! OMG! OMG!

    I just checked my blog and you commented on it! WOW! I feel like big time now!!!

    You just totally made my day!

    I think I have got to try this recipe!

    Also- no one has talked about it yet (that I know it). Linens n Things is going out of business! The one in our town is in the same strip mall as my store and I am stocking a 4 qt. crockpot till it is on major sale!

  52. Sounds yummy, except I am not a coffee person. What about hot chocolate? Not quite sure how that would taste??

    ReplyDelete
  53. My husband and I made this last night with decaf coffee. It was very good and so easy. I am planning to make a larger batch for my Thanksgiving meal. I did have a couple questions though. The milk formed a skin on top after cooking. Is that normal and do you just remove it before serving? Also my spices kind of settled at the bottom of the mugs while we were drinking. Those last couple of sips were a little crunchy. Did you also find this?

  65. For those who were asking about making it as Hot Chocolate, the answer is YES! I loved the idea, and tried it this evening.

    --2-1/2 cups milk
    --2 T canned pumpkin
    --2 T white sugar
    --2 T vanilla
    --1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
    2 TBSP cocoa powder

    Follow the directions as otherwise stated. It was yummy! I'd bet it would be good as a chai tea, too

  83. Thank you! I just made a triple batch of this tonight. I left out the coffee so my husband could drink it and also because I love Pumkpin Spice Steamers. Oh. My. Goodness. It is GORGEOUS.

    I used a half C. of pumpkin for a triple batch because that's what I had left over in the can and I figured, (with some risk), that if a little pumpkin is good, more is better :)

    It tastes SO creamy even though I used fat free milk. I am taking most of it to work tomorrow and the beauty of it is, people can add coffee to it if they like.

    Thanks again. I can't wait to check out your other recipes.

  87. This does sound fun!! I remember enjoying these last year (my dau's hubby manages the local Starbucks, so she gets a bit of a discount :)

    Recently I found a delightful recipe for Pumpkin SMOOTHIEs & had to make two the
    first day!!
    http://vestellasvale.blogspot.com/2009/10/creamy-broccoli-soup.html

    I made mine with delicata squash, which I'd baked ~ 30 min in the oven with other veggies (seperate dishes) & it worked GREAT! So think of winter squash as an option in this recipe as well.

    I'm a great fan of coconut milk & used it in the smoothie (fab for anyone who's gone gluten free, as it promotes thyroid health, which may be depressed with gluten & candida problems!)
    Also added frozen blueberries, which just made it better!

  90. Hi anon, it serves 2 with a bit extra, so for 16, you'll need to multiply the quantities by 8. Use a 6.5 quart or larger slow cooker.

  94. I made a huge vat of these (4.5 times the recipe) for thanksgiving, and they were a huge hit. And it was so nice to have them sitting hot in the slow cooker... some people drank them when they arrived, while others had them with dessert. They were still perfectly hot and nice by the end of the evening, and I didn't have to fuss with making coffee after dinner!

    I think I'll try the peppermint mocha lattes for our Christmas Eve get-together- I *love* the idea of using the slow cooker for hot drinks!

    So just the other day I tried SB for the 1st time and had the Pumpkin Spice Latte & fell in love with it! I'm not really a coffee drinker, so I was pretty hesitant. No sooner than I finished my cup I was searching online for a recipe and thankfully I found yours and it's sitting in a huge mug right in front of me now :D Delicious! Sorry couldn't wait for the crockpot today so I made it on the stove. Will definitely be using the crockpot to make a bigger batch for Thanksgiving though. Thank You!!

Anyone know how to make huge batches of the wonderful spiced pumpkin drink??? It could be a lot of fun for everyone!!!

  105. Made the Pumpkin Latte's this morning (used the stove top). Excellent! Topped with a little homemade whipped cream. I believe this will be on the Thanksgiving menu! Thank you...love the recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  106. This is delicious!

    Because I love using fresh ingredients, especially when they are in season, I ended up using fresh pumpkin puree. Since the taste of fresh pumpkin is a little weaker (almost feels like a watered down version of the can stuff), I ended up using three times the amount of pumpkin in the recipe. It turned out great, but I could have still used a little more, since I really enjoy the taste of pumpkin!). Will definitely make again!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I'd love to take one of these into work with me... but I'm not someone who can get up 2 hours early to plug in my crockpot so it will be ready! Can I make a batch ahead of time (i.e. the night before) and just warm it up in the morning? Will the ingredients settle out?

    Thanks for the advice! LOOOOOOVE your recipes. :)

    FYI, you can freeze left over pumpkin puree, i do it all the time. Just put it in a freezer bag and label with the amount so you know what to use it in the next time. I often have a couple 1/2 cups of pumpkin in the freezer and then pull them out for bread or pancakes etc. making this coffee tomorrow for the adults at my boys' bday party.

  113. I wonder if you can measure out the 2 Tablespoons of pumpkin and freeze it in an ice cube tray for further use of lattes? This recipe sounds so delicious, going to try it soon! Thanks.

    Ok just so I dont mess this up,

    --1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
    OR: 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp cloves, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and a teeny tiny pinch of ground ginger

    Does this mean if I use the 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice I wont need everything listed under OR?

  115. Hi there,
    yes! that's exactly what I mean. If you've got the spice mix in the house, use that. otherwise, use the other ingredients.
    enjoy!!
