‘Fall’ in Love With These Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte Drinks

Published by .

Get in the mood for fall with these delicious vegan pumpkin spice drinks that are sure to make you feel cozy. Choosing plant-based milks for all your holiday drinks means that you’re not supporting the cruel dairy industry. Kick off the festive season with these animal-friendly options:

Peet’s Coffee

Peet’s Coffee has a vegan autumn menu that’s to die for. For pumpkin lovers, the chain offers the following options. Just be sure to request oat, almond, soy, or coconut milk.

  • Pumpkin Latte
  • Pumpkin Chai Latte
  • Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Mocha
  • Pumpkin Javiva (Ask for the “Reduced Calorie, Dairy Free” version.)

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

The main rule when ordering flavored drinks from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is to ask for flavored syrup instead of powder. Thankfully, this works with the shop’s pumpkin-flavored fall beverages. Here’s how:

  • Iced: Order a Pumpkin Cold Brew Almond Milk Latte.
    • You can also ask for soy, oat, or coconut milk instead.
    • Ask for vanilla bean sauce or vanilla syrup instead of vanilla powder.
  • Hot: Order a Pumpkin Latte. (Just ask for soy, almond, or coconut milk.)

Whole Foods Market

Visit the coffee bar at your local Whole Foods Market to find out whether it offers a pumpkin spice latte. If so, make sure that you order it with one of Whole Foods’ many vegan milk options and confirm with the barista that the flavoring is vegan.

Local, Independent Coffee Shops

If you’re lucky enough to have an indie coffee shop nearby, be sure to check out its menu. Cafe Andreini in Arroyo Grande, California, for example, offers a pumpkin spice latte that can be made vegan if you request a dairy-free milk. Cheers for supporting vegan-friendly small businesses!

Califia Farms

California-based Califia Farms is making all our pumpkin spice dreams come true. Check out the company’s lineup of pumpkin-flavored goodies:

Chameleon Organic Coffee

The Pumpkin Spice Creamer from nutpods is made with coconut cream and almonds, and it’s just 10 calories per serving.

Trader Joe’s

Whether you’re a coffee fiend or not, Trader Joe’s has you covered. In addition to the pumpkin-flavored seasonal eats, the grocery store chain offers two pumpkin spice beverage options that’re equally satisfying:

  • Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage
  • Pumpkin Spice Coffee (It comes ground or in single-serve Keurig-friendly cups.)

Pro tip: Enjoy either in a mug with a cinnamon stick. They’re both delicious and aromatic, and they’ll make you feel all kinds of fall fancy. You can even add Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage to black coffee.

To keep all the pumpkin spice possibilities in your back pocket, pick up a bottle of Pumpkin Pie Spice from Trader Joe’s. Sprinkle a bit in your soy latte or on your vegan ice cream to get that pumpkin flavor anytime, anywhere.

Laird Superfood

Real pumpkin and organic spices help make Laird Superfood’s Pumpkin Spice Superfood Creamer a perfect 10. Add a scoop to hot coffee for an at-home, delicious, vegan-friendly pumpkin spice latte.

  • The Republic of Tea’s Pumpkin Spice Black Tea
  • Tazo Chai’s Pumpkin Spice Tea
  • Celestial Seasonings’ Sweet Harvest Pumpkin Black Tea
