It’s officially fall, you guys! I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about this time of the year is the seasonal drinks. My day isn’t complete until I’m holding a warm mug of something that smells and tastes like pumpkin and/or general cidery goodness.

You probably know by now that Starbucks’ infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte isn’t vegan (even if you order it with soy milk and no whipped cream, there’s still condensed nonfat milk in the pumpkin spice mix.  :-(

The good news? You make your own veganized Pumpkin Spice Latte at home with this recipe.


Want to whip up some other tasty fall drinks right at home? Get your favorite mug ready, and check out these recipes:

Spiced Cider
1 gallon apple cider
1 cup orange juice
1/2 tsp. orange extract
1/2 tsp. lemon extract
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. whole cloves
1 tsp. whole allspice
1 Tbsp. agave nectar
1 orange, thinly sliced

  • Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Cover. Heat to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Strain into a large punch bowl. Serve hot or cold.

Hot Spiced Cranberry Punch
2 qts. cranberries
2 qts. water
1 cup maple syrup
4 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp. whole cloves
1 lemon, cut into thin slices
1 cup orange juice
1 dash nutmeg

  • Cook the cranberries in water until the skins pop. Strain through a sieve or blend in a blender.
  • Add the maple syrup, cinnamon, and cloves and boil for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and add the lemon slices and orange juice.
  • Sprinkle with the nutmeg and serve hot.

So, what’s your favorite fall drink?

    Aw man, I’ve been drinking that pumpkin latte for the past few years! That might explain why I got a stomachache afterwards. Good thing I can make my own now!

    I couldn’t make it through fall without pumpkin coffee, apple cider and mint tea.
