Keto Pumpkin Latte Recipe
When you are craving a pumpkin spice latte, nothing else will do. Luckily, you don’t have to compromise. With this Keto pumpkin latte recipe, you can have your cake and eat it too. A little bit of pumpkin purée gives this latte an authentic fall taste that can’t be matched by any artificial flavor. And of course, we can’t forget the pumpkin spice mix, with ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, all mixed in perfect proportion. It’s a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy, just what the doctor ordered to keep you warm on long, cold, grey days.
Pumpkin Purée: Canned vs. Homemade
Have you heard the rumor that canned pumpkin purée is actually made from squash? Actually, this is because the term “pumpkin” can be applied to a wide variety of winter squash including Boston marrow and several others as well as the classic Dickinson pumpkin. This is not necessarily a bad thing as some varieties of squash are sweeter and more tender than straight pumpkin.
If you don’t mind the chance of getting squash, canned pumpkin purée can be a great timesaver. Just make sure that you purchase pumpkin purée and not pumpkin pie filling which usually contains added sweeteners along with spices.
If you want to make sure that there is nothing but pumpkin in your purée, it’s easy to make your own. If you cook the pumpkin in your oven, you can roast it for extra flavor. You can even cook the pumpkin in your instant pot!
You can purée the pumpkin in your food processor or with a high-powered blender. You can even make a purée by hand with a potato masher though it won’t be as smooth as purée made with the food processor or a blender. It is not recommended to make a purée by hand for this recipe but if you do, you should remove the skin of the pumpkin for the best texture.
What Can You Do with Pumpkin Spice
The nice thing about spice mixes is that it is just as easy to make a big batch as it is to make a smaller batch. Pumpkin spice, also known as pumpkin pie spice, is good for a lot more than just lattes. Here are a few suggestions on what else you can do with a pumpkin spice mix.

For the latte
- Make a batch of pumpkin spice by mixing all spices in a small bowl. Set aside for later.
- Add the pumpkin purée and pumpkin spice into a small pan. Add the coconut milk. Cook for 1-2 minutes over low to moderate heat, stirring well to cook the spices out and combine the mixture. Stir in the erythritol.
- In the meantime, prepare your coffee. Divide the pumpkin mixture between the two cups of coffee and drizzle with a little sweet coconut cream. Sprinkle over more pumpkin spice and enjoy!
- To prepare the sweet coconut cream, scoop the solidified cream from a tin of coconut milk that has been kept in the fridge. Heat slightly in a small pan and add a little erythritol. Pour into a bowl and return to the fridge for at least 20 minutes to thicken up again.
