This homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe is EASY to make and is my go-to drink when entertaining in the fall or winter. It’s made with REAL ingredients from your pantry and everyone is amazed that it’s made in a slow cooker.
Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Latte has become a fall staple in my home. I serve it regularly anytime we host a group of people and have even taken it to fall parties and Halloween events. My mother-in-law now serves it at every Thanksgiving! It comes together quickly and smells SO delicious.
What’s in the Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe?
Unlike the Starbucks version of a Pumpkin Spice Latte, our slow cooker version includes all REAL ingredients. No artificial flavoring, no color dyes, no unrecognizable ingredients. Plus, it tastes just as rich and luxurious as their version…even better in my opinion. To make your batch, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- whole milk
- strongly brewed coffee
- pumpkin puree
- real vanilla extract (here is how to make your own vanilla at home)
- ground cinnamon
- cinnamon sticks
Sounds delicious already, doesn’t it?! Serve this with our Snickerdoodle Cookies, and you’ll be in heaven!

FAQs about Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
Do you really use 1/4 cup of vanilla? Yep. Trust us. This recipe has been tested and retested for years. Don’t skimp on the vanilla. And please be sure to use REAL (or pure) vanilla not imitation vanilla extract.
Can I substitute non-dairy milk? Sure, you’re welcome to, but it won’t be nearly as creamy.
Can I make this ahead of time and slow cook it later? We suggest making it fresh and serving within a few hours of it being done.
Does it work to keep leftovers in the refrigerator and rewarm them? You are certainly welcome to try, but our readers have said the pumpkin gets kind of weird the next day.Print
