Sit and relax with this easy homemade Salted Caramel Pumpkin Latte. Adding pumpkin and caramel to hot coffee makes a fall drink that tastes amazing. Don't forget to finish it off with some whipped cream and caramel drizzles.
A hot cup of coffee, pumpkin scones, and some quiet time is how I like to start off my day. It helps me slowly start the day off in the right way.
Since I am now on a pumpkin kick right now, I decided to add some fall flair to this salted caramel latte. It was seriously a good idea.
I had a partial can of pumpkin in the fridge after making these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Donuts, so I headed right into the kitchen and made this delicious pumpkin spice latte.
How to Froth Milk
To froth the warm milk mixture, you can use an aerolatte or your blender. The blender mades frothing so easy. Even fat free milk can get a good froth going on that way.
You can also pour the mixture into a mason jar, tighten the lid, and shake vigorously until frothy.
Pour your coffee into two mugs and divide the frothed milk between the two.
How to make a Salted Caramel Pumpkin Latte
- Place the milk, pumpkin puree, caramel topping, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice in a pan over low-medium heat. Stir until it just starts to bubble. You do not want it to come to a full boil.
- Pour hot milk into blender and pulse until frothy.
- Divide milk into 2 mugs. Pour coffee in gently.
- Top each cup with Cool Whip, caramel drizzles, and some sea salt to make this easy homemade latte look like a coffee shop drink.
BruCrew Tip: Don't like Cool Whip? This homemade whipped cream is also great on top of a homemade latte.
A pumpkin latte, some quiet time, and a good book to study, is the best way to enjoy this easy coffee drink. Now if only the weather would cooperate and get cool!
You can use any kind of milk in a homemade latte, so feel free to use whole, 2%, almond, or fat free. Basically is whatever in your fridge at the moment is fine!

I would love to try this salted caramel pumpkin latte but I really dislike coffee, do you think this would work with hot chocolate?
I think it would work with hot chocolate too! It actually sounds pretty good that way!!! Keep me posted on how you like it!
is there an error in the recipe? 2 Tablespoons of vanilla???
No, that is actually how much is in this particular one. The original recipe had that much too. Feel free to adjust it to your liking though!
thanks 🙂 I will add a bit less, at $6.00 a pop I don't want to use the whole bottle LOL 😛
Although I guess artificial vanilla would come in handy in this recipe 🙂
Yes, I would recommend using the cheaper stuff in this recipe...I'm pretty sure that's what I did too 🙂
OK! I made it and I love it, although I used frozen pumpkin (I always have a reserve 🙂 ) and I also used almond milk instead of real milk 😛 All in all a great recipe! Thank you!
I am so glad you tried it and loved it!!!
Could you make the flavor in bulk and store it so it doesn't have to be put together and cooked every time?
I have only ever made it one drink at a time. My thoughts are that I think it could be made a few days in advance. You need to heat it up every time though to put in the blender to get the froth on top.
I'm so ready for one of these comforting pumpkin lattes!!! Yummo. Bring it, Fall!
I hear ya! Fall can't come quick enough 🙂
very very yummy! so happy autumn is on the way. I love the photo with the drink on the books... makes me think of drinking it while reading in the garden!
This looks delicious and I'm going to include it in my post, Frivolous Friday-Fall is Upon Us. Thank you.
Thank you so much for including it:-)
