Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Starbucks Recipe

Starbucks has already released their pumpkin spice latte for the year, but it's still in the 80s and 90s here.  I love fall and I love coffee, but I don't enjoy a PSL quite as much when it's this hot outside.  

Until the temperature drops a bit, I'll be sipping this iced PSL recipe.  This is amazing, and the pumpkin makes a delicious cold drink.  

This recipe is easy to adapt.  If you want to make it sugar free, you can.  You can also make it vegan or dairy free.

Can Pumpkin Spice Lattes Be Iced?

Yes!  An iced PSL recipe is a delicious way to enjoy fall flavors while the weather is still warm.  The pumpkin and spices taste great over ice, making it a great drink to try during the end of summer.

Do Iced Pumpkin Spice Lattes Have Pumpkin in Them?

Until 2015, the Starbucks PSL and iced PSL recipe didn’t have real pumpkin in them.  However, they have since added pumpkin puree.

My iced pumpkin spice latte recipe uses real pumpkin puree.  

Why Are Iced Lattes Bitter?

An iced pumpkin spice latte Starbucks can be bitter if you use cooled brewed coffee.  I recommend using cold brew coffee because it isn’t bitter.

What is in Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Topping?

The pumpkin spice topping has cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and clove.  You can add them individually or use pumpkin pie spice mix to top your healthy iced pumpkin spice latte recipe.

What Kind of Milk is in a Pumpkin Spice Latte?

Typically, an iced pumpkin spice latte Starbucks has cow’s milk.  However, you can use oat milk or almond milk to make a Starbucks iced pumpkin spice latte.

What Goes in an Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe?

Here is what you need to learn how to make an iced pumpkin spice latte.  You can easily customize the ingredients for your dietary needs.  

For example, you can make a vegan iced PSL recipe or a sugar free iced pumpkin spice latte recipe if desired.

Iced Coffee

I highly recommend using a cold brew.  Cold brew isn't as bitter as hot brew, and it changes the taste of this pumpkin spice iced latte recipe.

You can brew extra coffee in the morning and refrigerate it.  You can also make an Instant Pot iced coffee concentrate.  I've used both, and they both work well.

But for the best taste, you'll want to make a cold brew or buy one.  I usually make it.  Learn how to make cold brew coffee with coffee grounds.

If I buy it, I buy Stok brand iced coffee.  I think it has a milder flavor that is very similar to what I make at home.

When I make a cold brew, I use a quart jar and this cone filter.  The filter makes it easy to make it without straining, but it does take a full day.

Milk Choice for Iced PSL

You can use heavy whipping cream, half and half, or any cow's milk.  I usually use 2 percent if I use cow's milk.

Lately, I've been drinking more iced lattes, so I'm using oat milk to limit my milk consumption.  I don't like it as much as cow's milk, but I like it better than almond milk.

Use what works for you.  The pumpkin and spices will overpower the taste of the milk anyway.

Pumpkin Puree

Use real pumpkin puree to make an iced PSL recipe.  I make my own each year and freeze it in ice cube trays to use later. Learn how to make pumpkin puree in an Instant Pot.

If you do buy pumpkin puree, make sure that you use pumpkin  puree and not pumpkin pie filling.

Spoon leftover puree into an ice cube tray and freeze.  Then pop it out and place in a bag.  Now you have puree for your next pumpkin spice iced latte recipe!

Iced PSL Recipe Sweetener

I really like this iced pumpkin spice latte recipe with maple syrup as a sweetener.  I've also used real sugar and coconut sugar.

They all taste great.  Use your favorite sugar or sugar substitute.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Use pumpkin pie spice to top your healthy iced pumpkin spice latte recipe.  

Learn how to make your own pumpkin pie spice.  You can also buy a pumpkin pie spice mix on Etsy.
