Step 1: Make the Cheesecake Filling

To create the delicious cheesecake flavor, you’ll need to start with the filling. In a large mixing bowl, beat 8 oz. softened cream cheese with 1/4 cup brown sugar until smooth and creamy. Add in 1 cup canned pumpkin and 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, and continue to mix until fully combined.

Step 2: Create the Latte Base

For the latte base, combine 2 shots of espresso (or 2 oz. strong brewed coffee) with 1 cup milk of your choice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once heated through, stir in 2 oz. pumpkin spice syrup and 2 oz. cheesecake syrup until well mixed.

Step 3: Assemble Your Drink

Begin by lining two glasses with graham cracker crumbs mixed with melted unsalted butter (use about 1 tbsp. of cracker crumbs per glass). Slowly pour the latte mixture over the graham cracker layer in each glass. Next, add a generous spoonful of the pumpkin cheesecake filling on top of each latte.

Step 4: Finish with Toppings

Top off your creation with whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg, or even some caramel sauce for an added touch of sweetness.

Enjoy your amazing Pumpkin Cheesecake Latte!

As a barista, I know that not everyone has the same ingredients on hand, or perhaps they want to switch things up a bit. Here are some substitutions and variations you can make to customize your Pumpkin Cheesecake Latte recipe:

– Milk: You can use any type of milk or milk alternative that you have on hand – almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, or oat milk all work well in this recipe.

– Syrup: If you don’t have Torani pumpkin spice syrup or cheesecake syrup, you can use a different flavor of syrup or even skip the syrup altogether for a less sweet latte.

– Espresso: Instead of using two shots of espresso, you can use strong coffee or even a K-cup from your Keurig.

– Crust: For a different twist on the classic graham cracker crust, try using crushed Oreos or vanilla wafers instead.

– Cheesecake Filling: If you don’t have cream cheese on hand, you could substitute it for mascarpone cheese or ricotta cheese for a slightly different texture and taste.

– Toppings: The latte is delicious as is but to create your own signature latte try topping it with whipped cream, caramel sauce, pumpkin pie spice seasoning or crumbled graham crackers on top.

These substitutions and variations are just some ideas to get creative with your latte making skills!

Once you’ve made this delightful Pumpkin Cheesecake Latte, it’s time to serve it up and enjoy! Pairing this creamy and pumpkin-spiced latte with a delicious slice of pumpkin pie or warm graham cracker would be perfect. The rich and nutty flavor of the graham cracker accentuates the pie spices and perfectly complements the cheesecake filling.

For an indulgent treat, try serving your Pumpkin Cheesecake Latte with a mini pumpkin cheesecake on the side! This will take your coffee break to a whole new level of gourmet.

If you’re looking for something less sweet, you can pair this latte with a buttery croissant or an almond danish. These pastries have just the right amount of sweetness to balance out the creamy and spiced flavors of the coffee.

To top off this already decadent beverage, I highly recommend adding whipped cream on top for an extra dollop of creaminess. The whipped cream blends in perfectly with the flavors of the pumpkin spice and cheesecake syrup.

Furthermore, Pumpkin Cheesecake Latte is not just limited to dessert time. You can enjoy it any time of day but especially during Fall mornings.

The recipe yields one serving after all, so why not make another for somebody you love as well? Whether it’s enjoying a peaceful fall morning or spending time with friends over dessert, brew up some Pumpkin Cheesecake Latte and elevate your cozy autumn experience.

Once you have prepared the Pumpkin Cheesecake Latte, if you wish to make it ahead of time, it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days. When reheating, it is important to gently reheat it in a saucepan over low heat. Avoid boiling the mixture as it can cause the milk to curdle and ruin the texture of the latte.

If you are looking for a quicker way to reheat your pumpkin cheesecake latte, you can use a microwave on low heat. Make sure to carefully stir every 15 seconds to ensure that all parts of the latte are evenly heated.

For those who prefer cold drinks, this latte can also be served over ice. Pour the cooled latte over ice cubes and top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar for an added touch.

This recipe can also be adapted into other forms of dessert such as a cheesecake filling or gourmet cheesecake. If making ahead, simply store your cheesecake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days or freeze for longer storage.

Overall, with its rich pumpkin spice cheesecake flavors and creamy texture, the Pumpkin Cheesecake Latte is not only a delicious beverage but also versatile enough to be used in various desserts.
