Do you love Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte but hate the price? Or maybe you’re having a little mid-morning get together and want to make a large batch for your friends? This recipe is perfect for that! Make your own Crockpot Pumpkin Spice Latte at home with minimal work. Easy Peasy.
I’m planning a Holiday Brunch in a few weeks and of course there will be lots and lots of Mimosa’s. Maybe this Raspberry Strawberry Mimosa or maybe just plain Champagne and OJ. I love Champagne! But not everyone wants to drink at 10am. Haha. So this will be the perfect drink to serve for our Fall brunch. Last season I made a Crockpot Cranberry Apple Sweet Tea Cider, but this year I’m going to the alcohol and the caffeine.

Step 1 – Boil 5 cups of water in a saucepan
Step 2 – Place the espresso powder in the crockpot and pour 5 cups boiling water overtop.
Step 3 – Stir in the pumpkin puree, creamer, and spices.
Step 4 – Place on high heat for 45 minutes to combine, and then serve (caution: will be extremely hot).
Step 5 – Garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon as desired.
If you’re serving this for friends, you can just use your regular mugs. But for a party, you might want to serve it in themed mugs, like [easyazon_link identifier=”B01LDS91J8″ locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]these Pumpkin Spice campfire mugs[/easyazon_link]or [easyazon_link identifier=”B01LZMIYL7″ locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]these Pumpkin Spice Everything mugs (too cute!)[/easyazon_link].
