Enjoy this coffeehouse-style Pick-Me-Up Pumpkin Latte drink anytime. Pumpkin melts right into the coffee and adds body and natural flavor. Creamy fat free evaporated milk adds richness and calcium, without adding extra fat. This is a great satisfying specialty beverage for all year round.


  • 1 cup strong coffee
  • 2/3 cup (5 fl.-oz. can) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Fat Free Milk
  • 1/4 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon

COMBINE coffee, evaporated milk, pumpkin, sugar and pumpkin pie spice in 2-cup microwave-safe glass measure or small saucepan. Heat until very hot (if using stove, use medium-low heat and stir occasionally). Carefully pour into mugs.

TIP: To make a foamy top to your latte much like your favorite coffee house creation, prepare as above. Carefully transfer hot mixture into blender container; cover with lid and then hold down lid with folded towel or potholder. Blend for 1 minute.

Makes two 8-oz. servings

I live in rural Alaska and 540 miles away from a BIG chain coffee shop. This recipe was made with items I could find in our grocery store, was very easy to make, and was beyond words in flavor! I highly recommend this recipe if you are craving a pumpkin latte. Side note, I added vanilla as others suggested and doubled the recipe for two people....we have LARGE mugs :)

Pumpkin Pie in a Cup!

I love recipes like this - cheap and easy. I made it on the stove top and added a little vanilla extract and a little sugar free vanilla syrup! It added just the right amount of sweetness. I also used a hand held frother and made it extra foamy in the cup. I didn't have whipped cream, but I think it would be a great topping!

Delicious and half the calories!!

This is just as good, if not better, than the popular coffee shop pumpkin spice latte. I cut back on the pumpkin just a tad, added a little vanilla extract, and topped it with a little light whipped cream.

Pick-Me-Up Pumpkin Latte

WOW! Made this today and it was so easy not to mention delicious. With the economy slump who can afford a $5 latte from a coffee house? Not me, but this is even better then any pumpkin latte I've ever tasted! Plus it has the added benefit of REAL pumpkin. Thanks Nestle for another great EASY recipe!
