How many carbs are in a pumpkin spice latte?
The classic pumpkin spice latte served at Starbucks is very high in carbs. One grande (16oz) serving is 52 grams of carbs! This is why we created a keto version for only 5 grams of net carbs per serving. Check out our full list of Keto Starbucks drinks.
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup
This recipe is all about the pumpkin spice latte syrup. Matt out did himself with this recipe because the syrup tasty enough to drink on its own! We’ve had leftovers in the fridge since shooting the video and if I’m not squeezing it into my mouth, I’m topping all my foods with it, from keto bars to peanut butter. We used actual pumpkin puree along with pumpkin pie spice to create the intense, perfectly pumpkin flavored syrup!
Is Pumpkin Keto Friendly?
A 1/2 cup serving of of canned pumpkin has 6 grams of net carbs. While many people avoid starches altogether (potatoes, squash, carrots), you can include some pumpkin on your keto diet as long as your monitor your intake and serving size.
A standard keto diet allows 20-50 grams of carbs per day, so 6 grams of carbs can add up if you are eating pumpkin in abundance.
How To Make A Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte
We found that the best way to make a latte low-carb was to recreate the milk used in a normal latte with a 4:1 ratio of almond milk and heavy whipping cream! We even added some collagen peptides, which is entirely optional, to create the frothy texture you would normally get from a milk steamer.
Classically, this is a fall time drink, but who are we kidding? When it’s low carb and has pumpkin spice in it, drinking it at all year long only seems right!
