Can you order a Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks?

Starbucks employees have confirmed that there is no true keto version of the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte.  At least, not one you can easily buy in stores.

In fact, a grande pumpkin spice latte has 52 grams of carbs, with 50 grams of sugar. It’s hard to find a way to fit that into a normal keto diet plan!

Or instead, skip the Starbucks run and try using this easy recipe to recreate a keto version of the class PSL at home.

How to Make Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte

This easy recipe combines hot coffee with your favorite Fall spices. It’s topped off with a little bit of whipped cream and a sprinkle of extra spice.

And the part is that it’s very easy to make — even before you’ve had your first cup of coffee! All you’ll need is a small saucepan to heat up the pumpkin and milk mixture, and a small immersion blender to blend it together with your coffee.

Ingredients in Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte

My recipe for low-carb pumpkin spice latte is a little bit of a “choose your own adventure type” of a recipe. I’ve created a couple of versions of this recipe that you can choose between, depending on what type of coffee are starting with: either regular brewed coffee, espresso, or cold brew concentrate.

Coffee

Some people start off with strongly brewed coffee, which will work perfectly for this recipe.  Or, you can start with real brewed espresso or cold brew concentrate.  These types of coffee are more concentrated and will create a finished drink that’s even more like a traditional latte.  Either way you’ll end up with a delicious hot drink.

Pumpkin Puree

What would a pumpkin spice latte be without a little bit of real pumpkin?  You can use either canned pumpkin puree or homemade pumpkin puree in this recipe. Just make sure you’re not using pumpkin pie filling, which can be easy to grab by accident at the grocery store.

A note about carbs:  If you really want to keep your carbs as low as possible, you can easily leave the pumpkin puree out.  The latte will still taste great!

The Spice Mixture

You can use a pre-made pumpkin pie spice mixture, but it’s just as easy to make your own blend at home.  You’ll likely have all the spices you need in your cupboard already. To make homemade pumpkin pie spice, combine:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (freshly grated is even better!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

You can keep this mixture in a small airtight container, and use it to make as many pumpkin spice lattes as you wish.

It’s also great to keep it around for any of the other keto pumpkin recipes I have posted on this site, including this quick and easy Keto Pumpkin Mug Cake, this creamy Keto Pumpkin Custard Recipe, or my super popular Keto Pumpkin Bread.

Almond Milk and Heavy Cream

If you’re starting with strong brewed coffee, you can add an ounce of heavy cream to make your “latte”.  

Alternatively, if you’re staring with espresso or cold brew concentrate, you’ll want to add unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk along with the heavy cream.  This will make an even creamier drink.

Bulletproof Pumpkin Spice Latte

If you’re looking to get some extra healthy fats in your morning latte, you can even turn this recipe into a keto Bulletproof Pumpkin Spice Latte.

To make this pumpkin spice latte “bulletproof”, you can add an additional 1-2 tablespoons of grass-fed butter OR MCT oil OR coconut oil.  What you choose will depend on your desired macros and the ingredients you have on hand. See what I mean about this “choose your own adventure” recipe?
