I love that one too. I bet adding pumpkin spice to your cup may work or heating the cream with sweetener and pumpkin spice then adding coffee would work too. I have never tried but I may now. Thanks for reminding me!

Since we don't have starbucks here, and every "pumpkin" coffee drink the ones here offer are loaded with sugar, what does it taste like?
I love pumpkin flavor, but all the coffees I've tried taste like the spice blend (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, etc) but no actual pumpkin flavor.

DaVinci's has a sugar free Pumpkin Pie syrup. I think you could make your own at home with some coffee/espresso, cream and SF syrup.

I'm not sure how to make an actual low-carb latte...some people have suggest swapping out the millk for cream, but if you do that in equal measure, that's a lot of cream! I wonder if diluting it with water would kill the flavor?

I have the Torani pumpkin pie syrup and it is deelish I love my Starbucks drinks made with all cream--they call it breve and it is to die for Oh, and btw I work for Starbucks, and I love it when my "regular" customer comes in for her breve because it means that I get to have one too she likes her all foam and I get the leftover cream part. Best part of the job.

Lots of upscale grocery stores also sell pumpkin spice coffees in their gourmet coffee selection. Just brew this and add cream!

Hi Dawn -- I'm a little confused -- at my Starbucks when I order a "breve" they make it with half & half. I have to specify "heavy whipping cream" to get the lowest carb latte. Did you mean to say breve = half & half?

Thanks!!!

Dawn~Would it be possible to ask for a pumpkin spice americano with hwc? Don't want to sound stupid, I think they already refer to me as "the crazy heavy whipping cream girl." :blush:

Yes, that is true. I do make those breves with half and half, but they are yummy

You can. But then your drink would have sugar in it. That syrup is so sticky that it is very sugar laden. If you can afford the carbs from sugar then go for it!! I love using the white chocolate mocha in my coffee and I don't worry about the little bit of carbs, even though they are all sugar carbs, that it gives me.

I don't know actually. I haven't had it in a long while. But it smells like spices (just like our chai concentrate) and I imagine it has the pumpkin flavor in it as well as that is the only pump flavoring the drink gets.
