Nothing says fall like a warm and comforting cup of pumpkin spice latte. Follow these easy steps to make a sweet and delicious skinny (sugar-free) pumpkin spice latte at home.
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 , 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 and gets bonus points for being caffeinated too.

In a different microwave-safe cup, heat the milk in the microwave until hot.

Sprinkle the top of the latte with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.

- 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.

- If you want to indulge, add some whipped cream to the top of your 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 ? 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.
