Make your own fall-flavor treats at home

Do you adore pumpkin spice frappés no matter the season?

If you’re the first in line at Starbucks every autumn, clapping your mittens together in anticipation of that first pumpkin spice latte of the season, if you savor every week of Pumpkin Spice Season and cry when it’s over, then this is the recipe for you. Just because Pumpkin Spice months at Starbucks have come and gone doesn’t mean you have to give up your beloved pumpkin spice frappés — you just have to get creative in the kitchen instead.

I won’t lie to you. This recipe isn’t precisely, exactly the same as what goes into the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino at Starbucks because they don’t just give away that magic recipe to anyone for love or money. But this version is absolutely delicious (we think it might actually be better than the original) and will definitely hit the spot until Pumpkin Spice Season returns to us in all its autumnal glory — plus it won’t cost you $5 a cup. Try our Pumpkin Spice Frappé Recipe and get all the pumpkin spice flavors you’ve been missing — with some additional nutrients and vitamins to boot!

Make These Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Favorites At Home

If Starbucks has done anything right, it’s their seasonal pumpkin spice treats. Warm, well-spiced, and marketed exclusively for fall, these treats feel cozy when the weather begins to turn crisp. We’ve transformed the cream cheese-filled pumpkin muffin into vegan perfection, best enjoyed with our sweet-and-salty, buzzworthy vegan salted caramel frappe. Both can be made quite easily in your home, which means you get to enjoy this treat year-round, whenever the craving hits. That’s what we call a win-win.

Pumpkin Spice Granola Ingredients

  • Rolled oats
  • Pecans
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cashews
  • Pumpkin spice
  • Sea salt
  • Vanilla extract
  • Pumpkin puree – you can make your own or buy from the store! Just make sure you grab pureed pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Coconut oil
  • Maple syrup
  • Egg white – this is optional but I love adding egg white to create granola clusters. If you want smaller crumbles of granola or want to keep this recipe vegan, omit the egg white!

One of my favorite pass time hobbies is to experiment with unique flavors of coffee. I am sharing this recipe to save you from drinking expensive coffee from cafes and shops. As soon as the season of pumpkin-spiced latte hits, everyone raves about their spiced lattes and coffee. Honestly, I do love their spiced lattes and they taste so good. But who needs them when you can make your coffee with budget-friendly home-based ingredients effortlessly?

So here I am presenting you with a super convenient, easy to make recipe of ultimate pumpkin spice iced coffee. Pumpkin is my favorite fruit and I am always trying new recipes with it. Recipes made with pumpkin are nostalgic for me because we used to make so many dishes by using pumpkin when I was younger. Especially the different kinds of drinks and desserts. Oof! I loved them. We had a backyard garden full of pumpkins and other seasonal fruits. My whole family is big on organics and kitchen gardening stuff so it is all quite self-explanatory.

Pumpkin is a healthy addition to our diets. It’s high on antioxidants plus it is packed with vitamins that will boost your immunity. I always make sure that my recipes are health-friendly so everyone can enjoy them just the same. For sweetener options, I had to think and experiment a bit so I could make sure which sweetener goes well with pumpkin. Finally, I opted for honey because honey, pumpkin, and coffee are just the perfect combination.

I added freshly made pumpkin sauce for that distinct fresh fruity flavor. It gives a strong frothy texture to the coffee. But you can also use store-bought sauces, purees or syrups. I used nutmeg and cinnamon to spice up the coffee. Other spices used were ginger and cardamom to give that extra kick to the flavor. Spices depend on how refined your palate is. Some people cannot stand the taste of these spices. You can always go for milder spices like ginger or cardamom as well. Nutmeg and cinnamon are on the stronger side of flavor. If you do use ginger, the dried ginger powder is recommended.

Like my other recipes, this recipe is also simple and takes little time to prepare. First of all, heat the milk and then add spices and pumpkin sauce. Stir for a couple of times and let it stand. Now add honey and coffee and blend, so all the ingredients incorporate well into each other. Pour into a glass with ice cubes and voila.

5-Ingredient Pumpkin Frappuccino

I like the way my boss puts it: Fall rolls around and the pumpkin spice latte comes back and “everyone loses their damn mind.” Yep, that’s the caffeine crowd I’m catering to today – myself included.

Remember when I made my 3 ingredient mocha frappe a while back? It was such a hit among readers that I decided to recreate it, but this time more fall friendly. I added some pumpkin butter to my milk “ice cubes” using this recipe, which I loosely followed. But if you don’t have pumpkin butter, you can just use pumpkin puree and add a bit more pumpkin pie spice and sweetener, or sub a pumpkin-flavored syrup.

I opted for cold brew coffee that I brewed the night before and strained in the morning, but any chilled espresso or bold roast coffee will do.

Once you add your pumpkin ice cubes to the blender, all you need to add is coffee. Anything else is completely optional: creamer, additional sweetener or spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.).

The result is a creamy, pumpkin frappuccino with plenty of sweet and spice. I opt to call it a pumpkin-cinno. Festive, eh? I believe this would make the perfect beverage for your morning work commute – it certainly does mine.

Pumpkin Spice Frappé

If you love blended drinks, you’ll love this pumpkin spice frappe. I made this frappé using Torani’s new Real Cream Plain Frappé base.

The frappé base is made with real cream and sugar, which is always something I look for when I’m choosing which products to use in my kitchen.

The frappé base makes it really easy to whip up blended drinks like this. All you have to do is pour the base into a blender full of ice, add your espresso or brewed coffee, then add any extra sauces or flavorings that you want.

Because the Torani frappé base already has sugar in it, you don’t need to add any extra sweeteners.

To create this pumpkin spice frappé, I started out with 2 cups of ice and Torani’s Plain Frappé base. You could totally use Torani’s Coffee Frappé base instead for a richer coffee flavor.

Instead of adding espresso, I added really strong, brewed coffee. Then, to create the pumpkin flavor, I added a couple of more ingredients.

I used fresh pumpkin purée and pumpkin pie spice. The purée adds the delicate flavor of pumpkin, while the spice adds all those more pronounced flavors of nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon.

If you wanted, you could add one of Torani’s syrups to customize this drink to your own taste. Because Torani offers a variety of choices with both the Real Cream Frappé base and the syrups, it’s easy to create different recipes to match your cravings.

You can also save $2 on one Torani Real Cream Frappé Mix right now at Walmart until November 24th, so it’s the perfect time to give it a try.

For this drink, I decided to reserve Torani’s caramel syrup as a delicious garnish. I blended everything together then finished off this pumpkin spice frappé with whipped cream, a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, and a drizzle of Torani’s caramel sauce.

This pumpkin spice frappé is rich and creamy, thanks to the Torani frappé base. If you’re looking for a refreshing alternative to the warm latte version of this beverage, then this frappé should be your go-to!

In a word, yum. Welcome the beginning of fall with a fun twist on your favorite nut. These pumpkin spice flavored almonds will leave you speechless. We’ll admit, it’s hard not to devour the entire batch. They make the perfect after school snack for kiddos as well. Don’t forget to visit Kimberly at The Night Owl for the recipe and instructions.

Pumpkin Spice Frappe!

When it’s not quite fall, but Pumpkin Spice is in the air, we get caught between two seasons here in North Carolina. It’s still too hot for dessert coffees, but wishful thinking has us longing for the sweaters and pumpkins and that ubiquitous Starbucks Frappuccino Pumpkin flavored sugar-laden drink that has 67 grams of carbs per 16-ounce serving. Let’s be honest. Did you ever order the small? Yeah neither did I.

Pumpkin Spice doesn’t have to be full of 67 grams of carbs (66 of those sugars). You can simply brew coffee and pour it over ice, but that’s not the same. No, we need something more like a milkshake, don’t we? Well c’mon over! We’ve created it!

This Frappe is thick and dreamy thanks to the coffee ice cubes. Yes, freezing the coffee into ice cubes creates an added step and some delayed gratification, but it’s completely worth the effort. Trust me!

Adding the pumpkin puree and heavy cream also help to thicken this reach coffee dessert. These also add some carbs, so feel free to omit one or the other or both. The frappe won’t be quite as thick and dreamy, but you can still enjoy the pumpkin spice flavors from the coffee or spices.

As for dairy-free creamer, there are some great sugar-free options now. We like the Milkadamia brand, Nutpods, or Califa. Just be sure to buy unsweetened as the content varies by flavor even within the same brand.

Last, use the flavors you love. We tend to like more pumpkin and less spice, so I only add cinnamon to pumpkin spice flavored coffee. If you’re using plain coffee, you can add pumpkin spice seasoning or your own combination of cinnamon, clove, ginger, and nutmeg.

Pumpkin Spice Frappe

1 cup strong brewed pumpkin spice coffee frozen into ice cubes
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree (2.4 grams carbs)
4 drops liquid sweetener or 2 tablespoons powdered sweetener
2 tablespoons heavy cream (1.2 grams carbs)
1/3 cup dairy-free creamer or almond milk or coconut milk
(check your carton for carbs in the brand you use)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
dash cinnamon
½ teaspoon pumpkin spice (if using plain coffee)
Dash salt

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Pulse until well blended. The frappe will be thick.

Pour into a tall glass to enjoy. You can garnish with a dollop of fresh cream or a sprinkle of cinnamon or cloves or a pretty paper straw.

"All you have to do in the morning is bake and glaze." And as for that glaze, it's a sweet, vanilla-scented mixture of butter, confectioners' sugar and milk.
