We’re sharing the recipe for one of my favorite nighttime drinks, pumpkin spice golden milk latte because there’s nothing better than cozying up with a warm cup of milk just before bed.
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved ending the night with some sort of warm drink.
I’ll totally blame this on one of my aunts who served us the best mocha out of THE tiniest teacups every time we spent the night at her house.
Even as we got older and moved away whenever she invited us over for dinner the first words out of her mouth were usually, “I’m so glad you’re here!” followed by, “I got the coffee ready for you girls.”
Just thinking about it brings back the sweetest memories.
Well, this aunt recently came to visit and one night after dessert we were talking about how we needed to find a nighttime replacement drink for our usual coffee and mocha.
I immediately thought of this golden milk latte recipe I’ve been drinking on and off all year. Especially, during the times I have trouble sleeping.
As soon as I told my picky eater family this latte had turmeric in it though they were immediately hesitant 😂.
While I completely understand tumeric is not for everyone, the honey in this recipe does help to cut the “earthy taste” just a bit.
Honestly, this pumpkin spice version tastes like Fall in a cup to me so give it a chance!
Here’s a look at all the ingredients you’ll need to make a pumpkin spice golden milk latte too…
Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk Latte Recipe:
- ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
- 2 tsp pumpkin puree
- 1 cup almond milk
- ¼ cup canned coconut milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

- 1 tablespoon of honey
Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk Latte Steps:
Combine all ingredients, except honey, in a saucepan.
Whisk to combine ingredients.
Using caution and care, warm ingredients in a saucepan on the stove.
*Make sure your blender can be used for hot liquids prior to moving on to the next step.
Carefully transfer hot liquid into a blender, using caution and care as contents will be hot, then tightly seal lid.
Blend until frothy, for about 30 seconds.
Transfer mixture to a generous mug.
Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice if you have some on hand.
Serve warm and drink immediately.
I know these days of running around trying to prepare for a new season can get kind of hectic. So, it always feels like a special treat whenever I take a break for this pumpkin spice golden milk latte.
It’s a fun way to wind down the day, reassess tomorrow’s goals and take a few moments of quiet reflection for all the gifts we’ve been given lately.
