Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte {real pumpkin}

Tea drinkers rejoice! We can get in on the pumpkin spice latte train! Make this beautiful Pumpkin Spice Base and store it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks to whip together a creamy, pumpkiny, sweet cup of chai whenever the craving strikes. P.S. Coffee drinkers, I suppose you can use it, too. xoxo Adapted from and with thanks to Lori The Recipe Girl

For the Pumpkin Spice Base:

  • 1 cup real pumpkin puree not pie filling
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 pinch of salt

For the Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte:

  • 2 tablespoons Pumpkin Spice Base
  • 1 cup milk whole, 2%, skim, almond, coconut, soy, what have you...
  • 1 chai tea bag. I like Stash Chai Spice best.

Optional for serving:

  • Whipped Cream
  • fresh nutmeg


To Make the Pumpkin Spice Base:

  • Mix all of the base ingredients together until it is evenly coloured and darkened. Scrape it into a clean jar with a tight fitting lid. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

To Make a Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte:

  • Pour about 4 ounces of boiling water over the chai tea bag (unless you're using green or white chai, in which case you use under-boiling water!) Let it sit while you prepare the pumpkin milk.
  • Stir the Pumpkin Spice Base and the milk together in a microwave safe 2 cup container or a saucepan until smooth. If microwaving, heat on high until steamy and frothy. If heating in a saucepan, heat over medium high heat until steaming hot.
  • Pour the hot milk into the tea. You can leave the tea bag in if you'd like it very strong or remove it according to your own preference. Serve as is or top with a thick cap of whipped cream and a few scrapings of nutmeg. Say ahhhhhhh.
