Pumpkin Latte Base for Pumpkin {Chai} Lattes

Scroll down to content


I’m obsessed with pumpkin chai lattes but only the kind made with real pumpkin puree. Sadly, I haven’t found many coffee shops that a) carry pumpkin lattes b) carry pumpkin lattes using homemade puree.

Recently I made some homemade Pumpkin Puree specifically so I could make my own pumpkin chai lattes at home. The recipe for this base is adapted from Foodie with Family’s recipe. I should add that her Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte looks fab.



  • 3 c. homemade Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 c. dark brown sugar
  • 2 T. ground cinnamon
  • 1 T. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


easy pumpkin chai latte ingredients.

  • 3 T. pumpkin spice base
  • 2/3 c. milk (I always use whole)
  • 2/3 c. chai tea latte concentrate (such as Tazo or Oregon Chai)
  • Whipped cream, for garnish
  • freshly grated nutmeg



  1. Mix all of the base ingredients together until combined. Scrape it into a jar with a tight-fitting lid. You can store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  2. For an easy chai latte: Stir the pumpkin spice base, milk and chai latte concentrate together in a microwave safe mug or in a saucepan until smooth. Heat in your microwave or on the stove until steamy. If you have a frother, use according to manufacturer’s directions.
  3. Serve topped with whipped cream and some freshly grated nutmeg.


You can make a slightly more difficult chai tea latte by steeping some chai tea (use a small amount of water when steeping) and adding it to hot milk. I’ve done this in the past but felt like my latte was a bit weak.

I’ve also considered buying a chai tea latte from Starbucks and swirling in some of this pumpkin base. This base would also work well in a coffee pumpkin latte made with espresso instead of chai tea. If you’re really adventurous, I’m betting a chocolate pumpkin latte would be fab, too.

If you know anyone who loves pumpkin lattes, a small jar of this would make a great gift!
