Just like that, Fall has arrived just like clockwork! For us here in the Pacific Northwest, this means cooler temps, gorgeous foliage, sweatshirts/fleeces, football games, pumpkin patch visits, and umbrellas. It also means the arrival of pumpkin spice coffee creamer and pumpkin spice lattes! 

This recipe is an old hand-me-down from a while back. You know… the kind where a friend shares a recipe with a friend who then writes it down and shares it with another friend, etc.,  and the original source is lost to the ages. Yeah… that kind of recipe! I am not dairy-free, but my sister-in-law is a vegan (and completely dairy-free), and this is a lovely hot drink she can truly enjoy!

The recipe is for a delicious hot coffee beverage that is made with canned coconut milk! If you are not acquainted with canned coconut milk, it can usually be found in the Asian section of your grocery store. I’ve been enjoying it for YEARS! That’s right… canned coconut milk, and it tastes wonderful in this latte. You can also make it with whole milk as a substitute if dairy products are fine with you. I’ve had it both ways, and I think I prefer the flavor even more using coconut milk!

This latte is a nice alternative seasonal beverage for anyone, especially those who need to be dairy-free, for dietary reasons. The added bonus is that this pumpkin latte (which makes two servings) is absolutely simple to prepare. Here’s how to make two servings of this hot Fall beverage (which you can make ANY time of the year!).

What Ingredients Will I Need?

The “cast of characters” you will need to make the latte are strong brewed coffee, canned coconut milk, pumpkin pie spice mix, honey, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract. For the pumpkin puree, you can choose to use homemade puree or canned. TIP: If you need a quick recipe for homemade pumpkin pie spice mix, you can use this one.

I typically use homemade pumpkin puree, which is slightly lighter in color than canned. If you are using canned pumpkin, be sure to NOT use pumpkin pie filling. Use pumpkin puree, and all will be right in the world, okay? Okay!.

Ingredients for the latte include coffee, pumpkin pie spice, coconut milk, honey, pumpkin puree and vanilla.

Preparing The Pumpkin Spice Coconut Milk Latte

The first thing you will need to do is brew one cup of very strong coffee. If you tend to use a mild roast or generic brand of coffee, slightly increase the amount of coffee grounds you use to make it stronger. This amount of coffee made will be split between the two drinks. Once brewed, pour the coffee into a medium saucepan.

Add the canned coconut milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, pumpkin spice and honey. Whisk or stir well, to combine these ingredients. NOTE: If you do not have access to canned coconut milk, you can substitute one cup of whole milk if you are okay with using dairy products. TIP: When using canned coconut milk, be sure to thoroughly stir the contents before adding to the saucepan. This will incorporate the coconut cream into the coconut milk.

Turn the heat to LOW, and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Whisk occasionally as it cooks, to fully incorporate the spices into the liquid. When the latte is fully heated through (and quite HOT), it is done!

Ladle the hot pumpkin spice coconut milk latte into two mugs. if desired (optional, but yummy), top each latte with whipped cream, and then sprinkle (or sift) a bit more pumpkin spice onto the whipped cream. Serve hot, and enjoy!

Are you DAIRY-FREE? If you are dairy-free, ladle the hot drink into mugs. Sprinkle each drink with a bit more pumpkin spice mix, then serve and enjoy while hot.
