Weightwatchers Pumpkin Style Latte

Creamy, spiced latte, just the trick to warm you up


Has anyone tried the Pumpkin Spiced Latte's from Starbucks?  Their absolutely gorgeous and I'm not a tea or coffee type person but these are quite addictive. 

That's until I realized that 1 of these little treats are actually more of a trick because a medium one has a propoints value of 8 Propoints!  Now that's spooky.

Now that is a lot to spend on a coffee of any kind, I mean 8 and I'm not eating anything, I'd rather pass on that one.  

However, I decided to see if I could do this myself with a much more Weight Watchers friendly outcome. 

Its Sunday, it's freezing out and this will definitely warm you up and I think its perfect for a Lazy Sunday.

Weightwatchers Propoints per Serving 4
Weightwatchers Propoints per Recipe 8
Serves 2 


For the pumpkin spice

1 Tbl of Cinnamon
1 tsp of Ginger
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 tsp All Spice

For the Latte

3 tbsp ground coffee
1 tbsp pumpkin spice
1000 ml of boiling water
400 ml Slimline milk (I used Lidl Skimmed Milk) and ½ a tsp of vanilla extract
2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
50ml of Lidl Linessa Spray Cream 


In a coffee percolator, well this is how I use mine, place the coffee and the pumpkin spice mix.  Pour in the boiling water and allow to sit for a couple of minutes.  

Mix the vanilla extract and the milk together. I like to heat the milk up slightly but this is optional. 

In the meantime, put 1 Tbl of maple syrup into each glass.  Push the strainer down of your coffee pot and fill each glass 3 quarters way up and stir well.   Pour the milk into both glasses.  Pour 25 ml onto each glass.  This is roughly just short of 2 measured Tbl of cream.

Finish with a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Enjoy the Niptuck way, so you don't have to!
