If you’re like me, getting out of bed and out the door in the mornings can sometimes be a struggle equivalent to putting a toddler in a carseat that they don’t want to get in. (If you know, you know.) This is why my Nespresso is so precious to me, I appreciate the slow mornings with a Bialetti or French Press as much as anyone but the Nespresso is more conducive to my morning speed. It’s for the same reason that I needed a PSL “sauce” of sorts that I can quickly add to hot or iced coffee in the mornings so I don’t spend excess calories or money on my favorite fall drink.
Behold: Bites With Beth’s Pumpkin Spice Latte – coming to you early in sweater weather season so you can enjoy it all of fall. This recipe is dairy free and refined sugar-free but I promise you won’t miss either of those!

- 1 cup organic pumpkin puree (you want JUST the pumpkin, not the pie filling!)
- 2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 cup maple syrup (more if you’d like it sweeter)
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 1 cup black coffee or two shots of espresso
- 1/2-1 cup coconut or almond milk (I’ve linked two I like with this recipe!)
- ice and dairy free whipped topping if desired
- In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine maple syrup and filtered water into a simple syrup. The heat will help the mixture come together.
- Once well combined, add pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice until combined and just warm. If you overheat the mixture, the maple syrup will make the sauce a jello-y texture.
- Mix 2 tbsp pumpkin sauce into warm espresso and top with warmed DF milk. If you’re choosing to have the PSL iced – I’m looking at YOU Texas friends – skip the step of warming the milk and pour over ice instead.
- Top with a pretty spray of dairy free whipped cream – we’ve been loving this DF Reddi Wip, but historically, I love this recipe from Minimalist Baker.
- Add a sprinkle of Pumpkin Pie Spice if you’re feeling really fancy and go about your day.
- I like to store my remaining pumpkin sauce in a squeezy bottle in the refrigerator. I keep it for about a week.
