What We Tried: Pumpkin Pie Mocha /Coffee Recipe



With the first day of Autumn upon us, my taste buds have been having daydreams about pumpkin spice mochas. After some digging online I found a recipe I had to try.

I followed this recipe and added the spices directly to my coffee as instructed, but I could still taste the powder a bit. I am posting the recipe as written, and then I will tell you what I did this morning that was YUMMY.

Pumpkin Pie Mocha 

  • Makes one 6-8 oz cup. (Adjust the spice to your tastes.)
  • 2/3 cup coffee
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice*

Mix all and enjoy!

* Pumpkin Pie Spice

  • 1/4 cup ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 tsp ground nutmeg

What I did… I mixed the unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves and ground nutmeg and put them in a sealed container. I took 1 tsp. of this mixture and added it directly to the coffee grounds and brewed the pot (I only did a 10 cup pot. If I do a full 12 cup I will probably do 1 1 /2 tsp.)


I also found this recipe that I want to try, but haven’t had the chance yet. It sounds just as yummy Smile.

Pumpkin Pie Coffee Creamer

2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp allspice
1 cup non-dairy creamer

Combine ingredients and store in an airtight container. Use 1-2 tsp per cup of coffee

    gonna give a try

  7. I LOVE pumpkin pie. I dream about it during the year, because we ONLY ever have pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. I may have to try your creamer recipe, but with 2% milk for a lighter version. Probably won’t taste quite as nice, but sounds heavenly!

    I am a coffee fanatic and love trying different flavors. I typically just buy them pre-made at the store without even thinking that I could make my own!! What a great idea!
