Crockpot Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Seriously.

As much as I like LA’s seemingly endless sunshine, I LOVE autumn and long for the warm colors and crisp air of a Midwestern fall.  If its below 70 degrees or remotely cloudy I’m happily seizing the opportunity to snuggle into a sweater and knitted slippers and cozy up on the couch with a hot beverage.  And what hot beverage says fall more than a Pumpkin Spice Latte?  People competed to have these babies on the menu of their local Starbucks before anybody else.  Their seasonality makes them special, and their deliciousness doesn’t disappoint.   With a little searching of Google or Pinterest, it’s not hard to find a recipe to make it in the comfort of your own kitchen – so there’s no need to swap your slippers for sneakers, unless you’ve run out of cinnamon or something.

For our latest Ladies Night we were hosting another large group so I decided to make a crowd-sized version of this fall favorite beverage courtesy of a pinterest link to blogger Urban Nester.

Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Lattes

  • 4 cups strongly brewed coffee
  • 6 cups milk*
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Mix coffee and milk together in a crock pot.  Whip together pumpkin, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon then add to crock pot and mix well.  Heat on high for 2 hours.  Enjoy with cinnamon sticks, whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon or a dash of your favorite liqueur!

*I used middle of the road 1%, but go with whatever you like to order at the coffee shop: non-fat, soy, almond, whatever!

Happy Fall, Ali!

    1/2 cup of vanilla extract?!?! Is that right? That seems like a lot. I don’t think they sell it in that amount… Or can you use vanilla beans?

    • August 11, 2013 at 2:54 pm #

      Yes! 1/2 cup! You might be able to try the bean idea! If you do, keep us posted! We’d love to see how it turned out!
