The Lowdown On Vegan Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Our favourite recipes and tips on making pumpkin spice lattes vegan.

Whether your favourite thing about autumn is the crunch of recently fallen leaves underfoot, or bringing your chunky knitwear out of retirement for the season, we can all agree it’s a rather special time of year. So, how about entering the autumnal season with a vegan pumpkin spice latte in-hand? 

What is a pumpkin spiced latte?

Your average vegan pumpkin spice latte (or PSL) contains a lip-smacking concoction of fresh espresso coffee, steamed plant-based milk, a bit of pumpkin puree and lots of expertly picked spices. The spice blend is based on the popular American spice mix called Pumpkin Pie Spice, a tasty combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and ginger. 

Drinking out

Don’t worry die-hard Starbucks fans, its PSL is completely vegan-friendly and tastes great with oat milk (hot or iced) if you’re new to veganising your drinks order. 

However, Starbucks don’t own vegan PSLs here in the UK – you’ll find great options at Greggs and Pret a Manger.

Would you rather shop independent? Keep an eye out at your favourite local cafes for their seasonal drinks, maybe one of them will be your new go-to for your vegan pumpkin spice latte fix.


Homemade vegan pumpkin spice latte

This taste of autumn is easily replicable, so there’s no need to spend £3+ every time you fancy a warming mouthful of the stuff. Here are a few of our favourite vegan pumpkin spice latte recipes: 

Where to buy the best pumpkin spice mix

If you don’t fancy making your own blend, then there are plenty of options to buy it ready-made – like this blend from Buy Whole Foods Online UK. Or, how about a pumpkin spice flavoured instant coffee like this one from Beanies
