This is such a fun fall treat to make, share and enjoy! There is a large amount of cinnamon in this, so we found that it needed to definitely be heated to the right temperature to allow all the spice to properly incorporate - for good measure I also whipped the heated product through the blender and would definitely recommend you do the same; it whips in a ton of air and you end up with a delightfully airy and frothy beverage!
Enjoy this beautiful, perfect fall beverage unadorned, and if you like a little extra sweet and creamy, add a touch of whipped cream and maybe another dusting of cinnamon if you want that extra touch of color.
I was so excited to find this recipe - I love that it incorporates real pumpkin puree! It's not overly sweet at all, if you want it sweeter feel free to up the sugar amount. I liked that it wasn't too sweet - it allows you to really taste and appreciate the pumpkin and spice flavors.
This is a delightful treat that you can serve and keep warm in your crock pot. Make it for your next get together this fall!

Crock Pot Pumpkin Spiced Latte from Thriving Home
Makes 10 - 15 servings
6 cups of milk (I used whole)
4-6 cups of strongly brewed coffee (I used Starbucks House Blend)
1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
3 TBS vanilla extract
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
3 - 4 cinnamon sticks
- In your crock pot, combine the milk and coffee.
- Using a hand or stand mixer, whip together the pumpkin puree, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon until well combined then whisk the pumpkin mixture into the milk and coffee in the crock pot.
- Add in the cinnamon sticks then cover the crock pot and cook on high for 2 hours.
- Taste test, adjust sugar / seasonings if desired. Blend in small batches in your blender if desired to add frothiness to the texture.
- Serve with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.
- If you have leftovers, store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days - to reheat use a pot over medium heat, whisking occasionally until heated through (microwaving the mixture is not recommended).
