Spoonful of froth on top of sugar-free pumpkin spice latte.

Over the past few years, the pumpkin spice craze has swept the nation. I’m not one for flavored coffees but I make an exception every fall when it’s pumpkin spice season once more, because it’s just that good!

But if you go to a coffee shop you can easily pay over $5 for a single drink, which is craziness in my book. Add to that the fact that my local Starbucks doesn’t carry sugar-free pumpkin spice lattes, I decided to try making my own at home. Now, some homemade pumpkin spice lattes use pumpkin puree or real pumpkin, but we’re going to keep things simple here and just use four ingredients: coffee, sugar-free pumpkin spice syrup, milk, and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to sprinkle on top.

Follow the easy recipe below to make your own sugar-free pumpkin spice latte at home for a fraction of the cost and in under five minutes. There’s a quick one-minute video in the recipe card as well. This sugar-free pumpkin spice latte recipe offers the perfect sweet and irresistible pumpkin flavor and gets bonus points for being caffeinated too.

Enjoy your pumpkin spice latte with whipped cream on top and a serve of one of these amazing pumpkin recipes: pumpkin cream cheese piepumpkin spice cupcakes (with cream cheese icing)pumpkin crumb cake, or pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls.

Recipe Notes

  • For sugar-free syrups, you can sometimes find them in stores. I haven’t had any luck this year so I just ordered from Amazon. Click here to see the latest sugar-free pumpkin spice syrup I purchased. Add as much or as little syrup as you like.
  • This little milk frother is awesome. I have had this one for about two years now but have only changed the batteries once. After each use, I just run the end under the faucet to clean and then put it away. For less than $10 this is a great deal! Be sure to use whole milk for the most froth. Click here to see all of the handheld milk frothers on Amazon.
  • If you want to indulge, add some whipped cream to the top of your pumpkin spiced latte.
  • Want to turn this into a sugar-free pumpkin spice frappuccino? Just add the ingredients and a cup of ice to a blender. What about an iced pumpkin spice latte? Just switch the frothed milk for cold milk and add ice.
  • Other coffee options: use two shots of espresso instead or decaf coffee.
  • While whole milk is the frothiest option, you can use any milk that meets your dietary requirements, including sweetened or unsweetened almond milk, oat milk, or coconut milk.
  • If you need to add more sweetness, opt for a sweetener like a dash of liquid stevia.

  1. I love to keep up with you and your recipes, too. Thank you for being so transparent. What a witness you are for our Lord that we Christians do NOT have it all together but live by His grace and sufficiency! I am sure you get it all done because you first sit at His feet daily and then let Him take over. I have found that no matter how busy my day is going to be, I only have a successful day when I first give Him some of my time in prayer and Bible reading. Then He seems to take over my day and I sometimes even get MORE done than on my list. AND that I flounder when I don’t first spend time with Him. Sounds crazy but His Crazy Love cannot be explained.
    Thank you for all you do!

  2. Easy, yummy, great! And I bet that milk frother would work really well for making whipped cream, too. Which would be way easier/quicker than using a mixer, etc. Thanks, Christy!

  3. I saw you on Paula Deen when it originally aired and have been faithful follower ever since! I have your cookbooks and just love everything about your website. I can’t wait to try this recipe…I’m a caramel lover myself so I’m already lickin’ my chops! I especially love when you let us know where to get these little helpers…Amazon delivered my frother today!

    Christy, you are a blessing and I believe your career has become a type of ministry to us! You don’t have to be standing in a pulpit to deliver a powerful message!

    Thanks for all you do!

    1. I’ve just spoken with the Florida Attorney General’s offcieYou can reach them at 1-850-414-3930 (I believe it’s option 1 in the list).There are multiple complaints against these companies. The gentleman at the offcie implied that an investigation is most likely when complaints reach a critical mass, and they can establish a pattern of abuse.So it might be a good idea for all of you to call. This company is in fact engaged in several types of abuse:- Timeshares- Mortgages- Credit card scams- Auto warranties

  4. Christy,
    I have been reading your blog for a couple of years now and I love it! Your positivity and kindnesses are so refreshing and welcomed! I have one off topic question- how do you get to bed so dang early and still get everything done? I am an early riser, too, 5 at the latest, but would love to get up at 4 so I could have an extra hour for coffee and my daily devotions before getting ready for work, cooking breakfast, waking the kids, etc. right now 10 is the earliest I can manage, but would love to get to bed at 9 when I put the kids to bed. Most of the time, I still have supper to clean up after they go to bed. I’m not a TV watcher, or a facebooker, it’s just getting the daily chores done that puts me late getting to bed. Any suggestions?

    1. Hey Susan! It’s so good to hear from you today!
      One thing is that my kids are both older, 16 and ten, so I don’t really put them to bed or have to worry about that. The other thing is that my husband is a night person. He gets a ton done in the evenings whereas I get a ton done in the mornings. So I pretty much turn the house over to him when I go to bed and he just naturally stays up late. I don’t do supper dishes, he does them. Usually, he will get a load in the dishwasher and a load of laundry in the washer and then dryer before he comes to bed. I wake up and just take the morning shift :). My preferred time to get up is 4:00-4:30 but I have been sleeping in till five or five thirty lately for various reasons. Now that school is back in, time to hold myself to hold my feet to the fire! I am doing good if I am in bed by nine but my ideal is 8:00 so I can read until 9:00. Most of the time, I hit the hay at nine nowadays and try to be asleep by ten. This is really too late, though. Hope this helps!

      1. Thanks for the response! I was wondering myself to pieces trying to figure out how you got it all done in such a timely manner! My husband works a lot of evenings, so that formula won’t work for me 🙁 but I agree with getting as much done at night as possible! Probably why I can’t get to bed… I usually put a load of laundry in the wash last thing each night and then get them in the dryer first thing each morning just to stay on top of “laundry mountain”! I am freezing meals on the weekend and trying to do all of my grocery shopping then too to avoid extra trips out after work/school to save time during the week. School started this week here so my feet are in the fire as well!! My girls are 9 & 11. Keep up the good work and God Bless!

  5. I cannot wait to try this! I LOVE my pumpkin spice lattes but hate paying for it! 🙂 When you make your coffee with the keurig, which cup setting do you use? It looks like the smallest cup in the video. Thank you so much for sharing!!

  6. Can you give us a recipe for crock pot chicken and dumplings? Like all your followers, I love your recipes and the stories about your family. You always make a good day a better one. God bless.
