Iced Pumpkin Chai Latte

Iced Pumpkin Chai Latte – The perfect fall recipe! Chai spices, pumpkin, milk, and espresso combined and served over ice.

Iced Pumpkin Chai Latte

It’s pumpkin season! Last year, I didn’t really get a chance to have much pumpkin so I have been compensating this year by making everything from pumpkin bread to pumpkin waffles to this iced pumpkin chai latte.

Now this is a recipe that really can be made either hot or iced, I just personally ended up liking it better iced.

Common Questions About Making an Iced Pumpkin Chai Latte

What is an iced pumpkin chai latte?

An iced pumpkin chai latte is a drink made with a pumpkin chai simple syrup, espresso, and milk served over ice.

Can I make it a hot drink?

Absolutely! Just warm the milk and espresso before serving and skip the ice.

Should I use espresso or chai tea?

You can use either in this recipe. If you want it to be more like a latte, use espresso. If you want it to be more like a chai tea latte with a bit more spice, use chai tea. Alternatively, you can split the bill and use some of both if you want it to be more like a dirty chai.

How can I make espresso at home?

Can I use coffee instead?

Yes! Just brew your coffee a bit stronger if you want to go that route.

What kind of milk can I use?

You can use whatever milk you like! I used whole milk but any dairy or non-dairy alternative will be great.

Ingredient Notes

  • Water is the base of our syrup – it’s going to help everything dissolve.
  • Brown sugar sweetens the syrup. Feel free to use granulated sugar if you prefer.
  • Pumpkin puree gives us the classic pumpkin flavor.
  • Chai spice adds the warmth and signature chai flavor to the drink.
  • Espresso adds great coffee flavor. If you don’t have espresso, you can substitute freshly brewed coffee.
  • Milk makes the latte creamy. Feel free to use any kind of milk you have on hand.
