Do you love all things pumpkin? How about chocolate? Let's have them together!

One of the reasons many of us love fall and winter is because it means that all the pumpkin recipes start to make an appearance. There's pumpkin pie, pumpkin tarts, pumpkin lattes and the list goes on and on. My favorite though is a Pumpkin Spice Mocha, we called it the Great Pumpkin Spice Mocha as we think of Charlie Brown cartoons and Halloween when we think of this warm, comforting and decadent drink.

We also have two ways to make this drink, the super easy and quick way which is still tasty or the must have the real pumpkin taste way which is not hard just takes  a little longer. We're going to share both ways with you and you can decide how to make it depending on what ingredients you have in your home and how often you want this delicious pumpkin spice mocha.

To get you even more excited about the Great Pumpkin Spice Mocha we also have made it with regular delicious whip cream and chocolate whip cream, oh yes!

So now who is ready for our two different ways of making pumpkin spice mocha? Here you go and enjoy, which one will you choose?

The Great Pumpkin Spice Mocha Recipe

The Great Pumpkin Spice Mocha Recipe


  • 1-2 tablespoon Torani Pumpkin Pie Syrup (depends on how strong a taste you want) start with 1 tablespoon go from there.
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 Shots of espresso
  • Whipped cream (optional but why wouldn't you?)
  • Pumpkin Spices (Already mixed or mix your own - Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg)

Now for the slightly more involved version but this Pumpkin Spice Mocha is totally worth it

  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tablespoon pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon Chocolate Syrup or 2-3 Squares of Dark Chocolate
  • 2 Shots of Espresso
  • Whipped Cream


  1. Heat milk and add Torani Pumpkin Pie Syrup once heated
  2. Add a square or two of dark chocolate or chocolate syrup (again to taste but 1 tablespoon is a good starting point). If you like it sweeter use milk chocolate.
  3. Pour milk and espress mixture in your tall glass or cup
  4. Top with whip cream and pumpkin spices
  5. Enjoy

This is the instructions for the other Pumpkin Spice Mocha, still easy

  1. Heat over medium heat spices, pumpkin puree.
  2. Once simmered add milk and chocolate, bring to a simmer (don't scald it.
  3. Put the mixture in a blend and blend until frothy.
  4. Pour in your glass and add 2 shots of espresso
  5. You can either melt the 3rd square of chocolate or use chocolate syrup and add more to the liquid or use it as a topping on the whip cream
  6. Add whip cream and pumpkin spice.
  7. This one is delicious with either regular whip cream or chocolate whip cream.
  8. We also sometimes add a bit of coconut sugar on top with the spices which our current pictures do have it.

Now don't both of those sound delicious? I personally Pumpkin Spice Mocha with the chocolate whip cream but I definitely wouldn't turn down either one! You can also add some chocolate curls on top if you want to go with a more chocolate flavor, just do what your taste buds like. In my opinion you can't go wrong with this drink! Now I think it's time for me to go and make another Great Pumpkin Spice Mocha. whose with me?

  1. LOL, I had to laugh in the recipe, where you said (who wouldn't) with the whipped cream. I'm with you on that! And I also agree - the more involved one sure looks like it's worth the effrt. But the easier one is good too, especially if you are pressed for time. I really want one now, just looking at the pictures!

  2. I would love to try this!! Seems like a lot of work for a drink but I know my kids would and step mom would love it!!

    Another pin-worthy recipe!!! This almost looks and sounds like a Starbuck drink! This looks rich & delicious!! I don’t even care if my sugars go a little high with this treat!

  4. This sounds so tasty! I am having guest for Halloween and I think I know what I am going to make for them 🙂 yum! I love that it is easy to whip together 🙂

  5. As I've said, no more pumpkin, please. Next in December it will be all about peppermint. I'm not trying to be rude at all! It's just that there seems to always be a theme.

  6. This sounds so good. I would love to make this recipe for a cool evening. I can see myself sitting on my porch drinking this great drink. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe

  9. Yum! I will definitely be trying the one that has dark chocolate in it, this is a wonderful Thanksgiving treat. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  10. The drink itself sounds good. I've had way too much pumpkin everything! I would use a different flavoring with this recipe. Whipped cream, optional? It's a must!
