This pumpkin white chocolate mocha tastes like a specialty coffeehouse drink, but you can make it right at home! Use strongly-brewed coffee if you don’t have an espresso machine.

I love specialty coffee drinks, especially this time of year. What is it about pumpkin that makes it pair so well with coffee? I really don’t know.
Well, if you find a straight pumpkin latte too cloying, you might like this drink better. The pumpkin flavor is tempered with a white chocolate mocha sauce, and the resulting drink is incredibly delicious.
I make this sauce at home, and make faux lattes with it. I don’t have an espresso machine, so I use strongly-brewed coffee. I do own a battery-operated milk frother. I heat the milk in the microwave, then froth with the wand, and add it to my faux latte.
If I’m making a small cup (a standard coffee cup size), I use one “shot” (one ounce) of coffee and one tablespoon of sauce, and if I’m making a large cup (a large mug, or a travel mug), I’ll use two ounces of coffee and two tablespoons of sauce. I add the steamed milk to taste and top with foam.
Making myself faux lattes at home has saved me a lot of money, even with buying a milk frother. I’m not so particular about coffee that I mind using coffee instead of espresso. And making one batch of sauce lasts at least two weeks.
- 20 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 14 oz evaporated milk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 tsp instant espresso powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 6 oz white chocolate chips
In a large saucepan, whisk together the milks, sugar, pumpkin, and vanilla over medium until lightly simmering.
Add white chocolate chips and continue whisking until chocolate is melted.
Add espresso powder and spices, and keep whisking to mix thoroughly.
Remove from heat to cool.
Pour cooled syrup into bottles or jars and store in the refrigerator.
Shake well before using. Add about 2 tablespoonfuls of sauce per coffee drink.
