DIY Keto Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte
Originally posted Sept. 26, 2017, updated August 27, 2020
I’ve been craving Pumpkin Spice Lattes (PSL, for short) like crazy ever since Starbucks introduced their come-back this month, affectionately known as the PSL. (Honestly, I think it arrives earlier and earlier each year). I prefer to shop local, and nowadays every independently owned coffee shop is now debuting the Pumpkin Spice Latte. For this, I am thankful! BUT I needed a Keto Pumpkin Spice version!
If you are on any type of modified diet, getting a PSL is almost out of the question. Even just a tall “Skinny” Pumpkin Spice Latte lands you at 200 calories and 38g of sugar! Seriously, if that’s considered “skinny” I’m just gonna go for the real deal and get a regular PSL for only 100 calories and 2g of sugar more! Additionally, most locations don’t offer a “skinny version” anymore. To modify it would be best to substitute the milk for almond, skip the whipped topping (which is pumpkin flavored, so you’ll be missing that!)
So…I was lead to the creation of my very own Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte. I’m also saving myself $5.00 per drink! I love this Sugar-Free Pumpkin Spice Syrup I discovered from Dashing Dish, it is dairy-gluten-and-sugar-free!
Keto, THM, paleo, gluten-free
This easily fits into many diets: Keto, THM, Paleo, clean-eating, and gluten-free. Drizzling a little bit of the Sugar-free Pumpkin Spice Syrup into some pumpkin-flavored coffee is ah-mazing, however, it really spices up plain coffee and expresso as well. I whipped up my own whipped topping that is also sugar-free, in my opinion, nothing beats freshly whipped topping!

Items you’ll need to make this recipe:
Sugar-free Pumpkin Spice Syrup
- pumpkin puree
- baking stevia
- vanilla extract
- Pumpkin pie spice
I make my own whipped topping, but you can purchase your own as well. If you are interested in making your own, here is my recipe:
- 1-pint Whipping cream
- 1/2 cup [Swerve|https://amzn.to/32zH2qc]
- 1/2 tsp [Vanilla extract|https://amzn.to/3lq437C]
Place cream, swerve, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Using a stand or hand-held mixer with a wire whip at medium speed, whip until cream begins to thicken. Continue whipping for several minutes until the cream is fluffy but not too firm. Use on top of coffee!
