Pumpkin Spice Latte season is well and truly upon us.

The seasonal drink has returned to Starbucks, along with the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew and new Apple Crisp Macchiato.

If you are looking to get your favorite fall treat at home, there are ways you can make your own, with several TikTok users sharing their recipes.

We’ve broken down three of the best recipes to make your own including a regular version, iced version and vegan alternative.

How to Make a Regular Pumpkin Spice Latte

In TikTok creator @foodies.247‘s easy recipe, start by adding a tablespoon of brown sugar, a tablespoon of pumpkin puree, and a pinch of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin pie spice to a glass or mug.

Add two shots of espresso to this and mix thoroughly with a handheld milk frother.

Pour a cup of hot milk on top and top it off with some whipped cream.

Dust with a sprinkle of spices to finish.

How to Make an Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte

For a cooler alternative, try @just.jully‘s recipe.

Using a blender cup, pour in a cup of milk, a quarter cup of strongly brewed coffee, a tablespoon of sugar, half a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and a few drops of vanilla extract.

Blend your mixture and then transfer into a glass with plenty of ice.

Add some whipped cream on top for the full experience.

How to Make a Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte

Starbucks’ traditional Pumpkin Spice Latte only became vegan-friendly in 2018.

Before that, the pumpkin flavored syrup had cow’s milk in the ingredients.

You can still create your own vegan version at home though, thanks to @vegaliciouslyeva‘s recipe.

To create your pumpkin spice syrup, begin by adding a quarter of a cup of water and half a cup of coconut blossom sugar to a small pot and bring it to a boil.

Continue stirring and let it cook for approximately one minute.

Next add seven fluid ounces of coconut milk, one to two teaspoons of pumpkin spice mix, half a cup of pumpkin puree, one cinnamon stick and one vanilla pod to the pot. Stir your mixture for one minute and then turn the heat down low and let it simmer for another minute or two before setting to one side.

To make your coffee, add this syrup to your foamed coconut milk before adding in a shot of espresso.

Top it off with coconut whipped cream to finish.
