Starbucks copycat recipe

Pumpkin Spice Latte Steamers are insanely tasty, so quick to make, and a must have this fall–especially because you can get the kids enjoying these too. I ordered a pumpkin steamer for my boys at Starbucks (called a Pumpkin Spice Creme), and will admit, I drank more of their drink than my own. Pumpkin steamers are the best — a combination of steamed milk, pumpkin, pumpkin spice, and plenty of whipped cream to finish it all off.

Since making these steamers for my boys, they’ll now ask for them just about every single morning when they wake up. We’ve gone through an embarrassing amount of pumpkin so far this year, and I don’t think that will change anytime soon. And pumpkin is a very healthy vegetable that many kids shun, but let’s keep that secret between us, okay?

Pumpkin Spice Latte Steamer ingredients

  • Canned pumpkin: Make sure to use 100% pureed pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin pie filling has sugar and spices added in.
  • Dark brown sugar: Light brown sugar will also work, but we like the deep, rich flavor of the dark brown sugar when pairing it with pumpkin.
  • Pumpkin pie spice: This is a blend of warming spices; I have a recipe for homemade pumpkin pie spice here.
  • Ground cinnamon: To amp up the pumpkin flavor a bit more, we add in a little cinnamon.
  • Fine sea salt: Just a tiny bit balances the sweetness and intensifies flavors.
  • Whole milk: While you can use a different milk in Pumpkin Spice Latte Steamer, whole milk is going to make the richest and creamiest steamer.
  • Sweetened condensed milk: A little bit goes a long way; it adds sweetness and a creamy texture. Use the leftover can in these 7 layer pumpkin bars or this no bake pumpkin cheesecake.
  • Vanilla: It rounds out and intensifies the flavor of Pumpkin Spice Latte Steamer.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Steamer–made into a float!

We’ve made floats with this recipe and they are insanely good! Add caramel, vanilla, or coffee-flavored ice cream to a big mug. Pour the finished steamer right on top, garnish with whipped cream, and enjoy!
