As you may recall, I’ve posted a recipe for homemade chai latte before. I’m not a coffee shop person–nor a coffee person, for that matter–but I do love a good chai latte. Making my own has made this drink more affordable–and more fun!

Now that it’s pumpkin season, I decided to try mixing up my recipe and making it pumpkin flavored. It took me a few tries to get the proportions right, but the result was delicious!

It’s a little weird to cook spices, but just stir them around constantly to keep any one spot from touching the heat for too long.Warming Pumpkin Chai Latte | Perfect for Pumpkin Season! | from Allergy Superheroes

You want to cook your pumpkin a little bit, and it’s best to do that with the spices. They’ll quickly turn to a sticky paste though, so have your water ready to go!Warming Pumpkin Chai Latte | Perfect for Pumpkin Season! | from Allergy Superheroes

After steeping, this mixture often has a lot of goop. Something happens with the tea and spices to make them a bit gelatinous. You want to strain the liquid through a strainer and let it sit for a bit. It also helps to stir it around with a spoon and even help push the liquid through. I keep stirring until all that’s left in the strainer is a sticky mass of tea leaves and larger spices, with maybe a pumpkin string or two.Warming Pumpkin Chai Latte | Perfect for Pumpkin Season! | from Allergy Superheroes

You can just stir the concentrate in with your milk of choice, but I’ve found you get a better result if you blend them together until frothy. It’s more like it would be from a coffee shop that way, and you know everything is getting evenly distributed. Make sure you shake/stir your concentrate before measuring!Warming Pumpkin Chai Latte | Perfect for Pumpkin Season! | from Allergy Superheroes
