Vegan Caramel Pumpkin Spice Latte

Before I tell you all about this Vegan Caramel Pumpkin Spice Latte, I have a small update for you. I took a small hiatus as I got very sick at the start of November but I’m back so stay tuned for all kinds of amazing Holiday recipes. Some will be coming before Thanksgiving and expect tons more to come before Christmas. I hope you enjoy!

It’s never too late for a delicious Vegan Caramel Pumpkin Spice Latte! Pumpkin season is over according to Starbucks but not for me. Pumpkin spice is so warming and comforting and I find it perfect for these cold months. This tasty pumpkin spice latte is very simple to make. All you need to do is brew the espresso shots, warm up the oat milk with the pumpkin purée and spices, and make the 3 ingredient caramel sauce. Combine and then top with your favorite vegan whipped cream.

Kitchen Essentials:

You’ll definitely want access to espresso for this recipe. You could technically use strong coffee as well but freshly brewed espresso is preferred. I have a Nespresso machine that brews beautiful espresso shots but any espresso maker will do the trick!

Main Ingredients:

  • Espresso
  • Oat Milk
  • Pumpkin Purée
  • Homemade Caramel Sauce
  • Spices
  • Whipped Cream

Substitutions:

  1. Espresso: I have a Nespresso that I use to brew espresso shots. Any espresso maker will work. Could also use extra strong coffee.
  2. Pumpkin Purée: I don’t recommend replacing this with anything or you’ll lose the pumpkin aspect of this coffee. But if you don’t have it, leave it out and make sure to add caramel and all the spices to make a delicious spiced caramel latte.
  3. Oat Milk: I love the creaminess of oat milk but soy milk, almond milk, or any other plant milk will work. I used the brand Planet Oat.
  4. Spices: I used a blend of spices but it could be substituted with the blend pumpkin pie spice.
  5. Vegan Whipped Cream: I used a coconut whip that I found in my local grocery store but any plant milk whipped cream will work.
