Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte

Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte

How good does this pumpkin spice chai latte look?? I can’t believe I never thought to combine the flavors of pumpkin spice and chai before, but I’m so glad I did now! I have now made this pumpkin spice chai latte three times in a short period of time so that should tell you how good it is. 🙂 It is creamy and sweet and full of fall flavor from the pumpkin pie spice. I love that it uses real pumpkin, and that you can adjust the sweetness and flavor to your liking. I didn’t have whipped cream in the house when I made this and took the pictures, but you better believe that next time I’ll be adding a little bit on top. 🙂 We love any sort of chai tea in our house, and this pumpkin spice chai latte is no exception – it’s a new family favorite!

  1. This looks wonderful! I can not wait to try it! Love your blog!

  2. What brand of chai tea bags do you use? I’ve tried several and they leave me sadly lacking in the correct proportions of cinnamon, clove, cardamom and ginger.
    I’d love to find a store bought brand that came close to homemade.

      I really like Twinings ultra spice and the Stash chai (just saw they have double spice, but haven’t tried that one!) – have you tried either of those?
