This Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Latte is just what you need on a cozy fall morning. Your favorite things in one mug… pumpkin, oats, espresso and steamed milk! Grab a spoon.
It’s Fall ya’ll! I’m so pumped about the start of the season. As I pray that us Florida folk we will get to wear boots and sweaters very soon, I’m sipping on a warm latte. In the summer I’m all about frozen and iced coffee, but the last few weeks…
I’m drinking lattes like all day like errr day.
In fact we busted back out the Nespresso machine, and ordered more capsules so that I can make lattes whenever I want. I love it because I can do a decaf espresso and it still tastes amazing. While I love the flavor and taste of coffee, I don’t like to get too much caffeine running through my veins.
Decaf is winning.
The Nespresso was my MUST HAVE wedding gift. I saved up all of our gift cards from our wedding and bought that pretty little thing nearly 6.5 years ago, and it still works like a dream. It truly makes the best espresso, hands down. (Sorry Starbucks… you know I love you too and I have a Golden card on my phone to prove it.)
Have you ever poured your latte over your oatmeal? No?! I dare you to try it. This breakfast fusion is all your favorite things in one bowl. I can’t stop won’t stop with this Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Latte.

- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 3/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 2 shots espresso
- 1/2 cup steamed milk
- maple syrup to taste
- Bring oats and water to a boil and reduce to simmer. Stir in pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Continue cooking and stirring occasionally for about 5-8 minutes until oats absorb the water. (These will be a little thicker than traditional oats).

- Drizzle with maple syrup to taste.
- Note: I used my Nespresso and Aeroccino for this recipe.
