Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Ingredients
This copycat Starbucks iced latte pumpkin spice is made with just 5 basic ingredients:
- Maple syrup – This sweetener gives a better, more traditional flavor, but you can also use brown sugar, but you’ll want to dissolve it into the hot espresso so that it’s not gritty.
- Pumpkin puree – Use real pumpkin purée , not pumpkin pie filling. Feel free to use homemade pumpkin puree if you have it.
- Pumpkin pie spice – Use store-bought or homemade spice. These are the classic fall spices.
- Espresso – I prefer to make mine with my Nespresso, but you could also use cold strong brewed coffee or cold brew coffee, it just technically wouldn’t be a latte.
- Milk – Use your favorite milk of choice. Regular milk, oat milk, coconut milk, or almond milk will all work.
- Whipped cream – Optional, but necessary for a true iced pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks.
