This recipe for Pumpkin Spice Iced Chai Latte will have you in love at first sip. It has me skipping the drive-thru line and enjoying this fantastic drink at home! Plus it combines my favorite Chai Latte beverage, with pumpkin making for a treat I'll be sipping all autumn long.
This recipe starts with brewing an extra-strong chai tea. Pick your favorite, I used Tazo's Pumpkin Spice Chai, but use what you like or explore something new.
Chai tea is spicy and with sweet notes. Gently sweetening it with just a little bit of sugar or your favorite sweetener enhances the flavor. I like to add a little extra spice in the form of Pumpkin Pie Spice for even more punch. I love the extra spicy notes that the pie spices bring. It makes for a beautifully balanced latte.
Once you have brewed your tea, let it cool. I like to make a batch of this once or twice a week and just keep it in the fridge. This lets me have easy access to an iced latte whenever I need a little mid-day pick-me-up.

The secret is in the Pumpkin Milk
I love anything pumpkin that is not pie and this is my new favorite drink for sure! It's like enjoying strawberry milk in the summer, but for fall!
This is a quick-to-make slightly sweet milk. I simply bring some milk, pumpkin puree, and a little sweetened condensed milk to a simmer, let it steep, then strain and cool. I could probably just drink it straight, but it is a fantastic compliment to the chai tea and makes a great latte.
Feel free to use any milk you like, any type will work if you want to make this dairy-free. Oat-Milk is a great option, and it adds a rich creaminess to your chai latte!
Let's make a fantastic latte!
To make the latte, fill a glass to the top with ice. Then fill it about ⅔'s full with the chilled chai concentrate. Top with Pumpkin Milk and enjoy.
The best part is that you can add as much or as little pumpkin milk as you like. Tailor it to your taste and make this Pumpkin Spice Iced Chai Latte your new favorite fall drink!
What to pair with your latte!
My recipe for Chocolate Pumpkin Swirl Bread that you see in these pictures is a fantastic accompaniment and makes for a wonderful midday pick me up!
If you like this latte for breakfast try it with my Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls. They are super fluffy and ooey-gooey, and just so fall you could scream!
I would also love it with my Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins. They are JUST as good as what you can get at the coffee shop, but you can enjoy them to your heart's content!
