Easy enough to throw together on a weekday morning, but so yummy that you’ll savor the pumpkin spice coffee vibes all the way through your commute — if it lasts that long. You can even make the pumpkin coffee creamer the night before, then mix it in with your coffee and ice before you run out the door to conquer the world with your bootleg pumpkin spice latte!
This iced pumpkin coffee can totally be made into a hot drink or vegan recipe. Swap the half-and-half for canned coconut milk and call it a day. Just as delicious.
If you’re craving a super sweet, Starbucks-like PSL drink, then I’d say that the amount of pumpkin coffee creamer that this recipe makes will be enough for one serving. If you’re looking to just add a little bit of sweetness to your coffee, double the amount of coffee in this recipe and make two drinks.
OK gord-geous, let’s get to the good stuff!

How To Make This Starbucks Copycat Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
So easy, it’s basically self-explanatory.
I like to first mix together the pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup and half-and-half to make a pumpkin coffee creamer and ensure everything is evenly distributed before I pour it into the coffee.
Mix it all together and toss in some ice, if you want to make it an iced pumpkin coffee drink!
One quick note on the temperature: I like to make this as an iced drink, but it will work as a hot drink too. I tend to use cold brew coffee, but if you’re making hot coffee and want to turn this into an iced drink, try to give your coffee a few minutes to cool and add some extra ice.
