Yes, it’s that time of year again for pumpkin everything. These homemade Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Lattes are just perfect for a fall get together, and couldn’t get any easier.
I start with freshly brewed coffee because I know most of us don’t have an espresso machine. I stir in half and half, canned pumpkin, spices, vanilla extract
These slow cooker pumpkin spice lattes would be fun for after trick-or-treating, or for a fall brunch. Note- I don’t like my coffee overly sweet, so add the sugar to your taste.
How to make pumpkin spice lattes in the slow cooker:
You will need:
- Freshly brewed strong coffee – I like Starbucks Pike Place
- Pumpkin puree
- Half and half (or heavy cream)
- Vanilla extract
- Whipped cream for serving, canned or homemade
- Additional nutmeg for serving
- Add the coffee, pumpkin, half and half, spices, sugar and vanilla to 5-quart or larger slow cooker. Stir.
- Cover and cook on high for 45 minutes to an hour.
- Ladle into mugs, top with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg.
Can I refrigerate and re-heat?
Yes! Place extra latte mixture in the fridge and reheat in microwave.
