Well, well, well, what have we here?

Just a skinny pumpkin spice latte.

I know, I know, pumpkin.


I mean every single blogger in the entire universe is posting about pumpkin right now, but I couldn’t not, NOT share tonight’s warm, delicious concoction.

Because NO lie this recipe is so damn festive, so damn easy, & so damn good.

Plus you’ll feel super ‘Fall-ish’ drinking this.

Fall-ish= that autumn-y scene of crispy leaves, trendy plaid scarves with matching navy Hunter boots, homemade thick cranberry sauce, pumpkin patch hay, & casual apple picking ( < um, bucket list ).

So ya, this drink is so totally Fall-ish:

The whole process takes like 25 seconds of life. It’s really just that simple.

Plus pumpkin has some badass benefits:

+ aids in weight loss

+ protects the skin

+ boosts your mood

+ reduces cholesterol

+ boosts your immune system

I give pumpkin to my chihuahuas ALL the time— dogs LOVE it. Just make sure it’s 100% pumpkin.

& honestly, I’m really all about these mugs.

If this whole post was about my plaid, festive-ass mugs, I’d be completely satisfied.

They’re just kind amazing in every aspect.

Plus, aren’t they sooo Fall-ish?

  • I’ve been holding out on a pumpkin spice latte this year because I don’t want all the sugar. Can’t wait to try this recipe!! This is the second post I’ve seen this week that uses liquid stevia in a recipe. How did I not know about this??


    • It’s so good! Just make sure it’s only stevia ( nothing else added ).

  • oooh love this- that looks way easier than some other PSL recipes I’ve seen! And I def always have pumpkin on hand during the fall, so that’s perfect! :) I will be trying this!

  • Hi Lauryn,
    What brand of pumpkin puree do you use?


    • Hi! I use a generic brand ( nothing special )– I just like the cans that are BPA-free & 100% pure pumpkin ( no other added ingreds ). xx.

  • eils

    Going to try this Saturday AM – sounds yummy

    • This drink is perfect for lazy weekends : ) x

  • OMG! I’m definitely gonna try it! Such a great alternatives to Starbucks drinks, which are full of sugar!

    Just be careful when blending super hot liquid – sometimes it can cause the top of my blender to pop off!

    • Good call! Maybe let it cool a little before you throw it in the blender. xx

    • OMG this totally happened to me this morning when I was all excited to try it HAHA! There was pumpkin spice all ova my kitchen…and ME! Should totally have known to let it cool down a bit! Now that the mess is cleaned up, it was totally hilarious
      And delicious!!!!!!!!!

  • I love this! I actually haven’t had a PSL from Starbucks yet this year, because they’re just too sugary for me. I can’t wait to try this healthy version. Loving the plaid mug — very fall. :)

  • Love this recipe! Anything to quit starbucks is great in my book:)

    This post makes me so happy! I love anything pumpkin and coffee related, but hate syrups that most coffee shops use. Can’t wait to try this!

    Lauren – can you please what brand of pumpkin purée you use? Thanks! Xoxo

  • I was totally gonna ask you where you got those mugs, then saw the link! Oh, Willam Sonoma. That place never fails me. Totally going to make this. I’ve seen quite a few recipes for pumpkin spice lattes, but this is the first I’m actually going to bookmark, because it sounds the best out of the recipes I’ve seen! I can’t stand the taste of stevia, so I’ll be substituting raw honey. Otherwise, this looks like perfection. Espesh in the plaid mug. Yay for fall and all fall-ish things!

  • My gosh that looks like a hug in a mug that looks like a hug.

    Never had a pumpkin spice latte, but looks like I might have to start. You’ve just made me excited for Autumn/Fall!


    • I’m so excited for fall! Ahhh.

  • I already and a snob of gmo, pesticides, non-organic coffee, etc. But after reading your posts, now I look at Starbucks like it’s poison lol. I’ve been throwing pumpkin pie spice in my organic coffee but totally need to get pumpkin puree now to up it up. Love your post and the pics! I love how its pumpkin flavored everythang now in the stores. By the way I made your easy peasy pumpkin pie recipe last year for Thanksgiving and all my friends loved it!
    Victoria recently posted..Mercury RetrogradeMy Profile

    • Ahhh, me too! It kind of is poison. I mean, I love an iced green tea but you just don’t know what you’re getting anymore. Glad you liked the pumpkin pie recipe! Yay!

    • Yay! Glad you liked it! x

  • Can’t wait to go to TJ’s after work to get this recipe! Wondering I can make it on ice with cold brew coffee concentrate from TJ’s, just a quick thought. :)

    • Yes cold brew works fab! x

  • Making this tomorrow!! PS the candy corn at Whole Foods is GMO free, no artificial colors etc and taste DELICIOUS :)

  • Klaudia

    Is Libbys pumpkin pie ok for this? Silly question I know but I want to be sure. Lol!!!

    • Yes; as long as it’s just pumpkin puree : ) x.

  • This is great!! I am always looking for some low-sugar drink recipes. Today is World Diabetes Day so this post is very fitting! I struggle with drinking too much sugar.

  • Just discovered your blog and I love it!! But I thought I’d say be careful with giving too much pumpkin to your dogs- because it’s a stool hardener. On the other hand if they’re having runny stool pumpkin is a great natural remedy!

  • Recipe for Starbucks chai latte please!! And matcha 😛
