Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Latte has become a fall staple in my home. I serve it regularly any time 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 is in the Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Latte?

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
  • sugar
  • ground cinnamon
  • cinnamon sticks

Sounds delicious already, doesn’t it?! Serve this with our Snickerdoodle Cookies and you’ll be in heaven!

More reasons to love Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Latte:

  • It can make your house smell SOOO good. Its scent is a warm-vanilla-cinnamon-pumpkiny aroma. It was better than any fall candle that I have bought!
  • It serves 15+ people. It’s a great recipe for large groups.
  • It was super easy to make and used REAL ingredients. No syrups.
  • I made it 2 hours before the group got there so I wasn’t scrambling to put it together as people arrived.
  • The taste was marvelous. It was warm and sweet with a hint of pumpkin flavor. It really does rival a coffee shop’s pumpkin latte.
  • Who doesn’t love to warm up with a special cozy drink with a bunch of friends?!

FAQs about Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Latte

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.
