Your favorite seasonal latte just got a makeover! Here’s an instant version of my homemade pumpkin spice latte…
If you like my original Pumpkin spice latte recipe you’re gonna love this recipe. This Instant Pumpkin Spice Latte mix is made with only 3 ingredients and takes about 5 minutes to mix up. Then, all you need to do is to mix 1 tbsp. with some hot water and milk.
Fresh milk. I know that most instant mix recipes use powdered milk/ creamers and more water. I opted instead for fresh milk for maximum flavor. You can use skim, 2%, whole, almond, rice or coconut milk – just not dry milk substitutes. I think it’s really the milk that’s missing if you want a good cup of instant coffee.
However, if you really want a hot water only mix version, add 2/3 cup of powdered creamer to the recipe. It’s okay, I won’t take it personally. Mix everything together, store in a jar and use 2 tbsp. instant mix per 8 ounces of water to make the coffee.
INSTANT PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE MIX
1/4 cup instant coffee
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Mix all the ingredients together in bowl or a blender until completely combined. To make the coffee, simply mix 1 tbsp. of instant pumpkin spice mix with 1/2 cup hot water, stir well and fill the rest of the cup with fresh milk (hot or cold).
Note: You could add few extra tablespoons of sugar or your sweetener of choice to the mixture, if it’s not sweet enough for you. Also, this makes a small batch but you can easily double or triple the recipe. Hot water only version: add 2/3 cup powdered creamer to the mixture and use 2 tbsp. instant pumpkin spice mix per 8 ounces of hot water.
