What Ingredients Will You Need To Make Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte? 

  • Milk – To make a Starbucks pumpkin spice chai latte, you will need two cups of milk of your choice. I prefer using whole (full-fat milk), but you can also use skim, low-fat, or plant-based milk.
  • Tea (Chai) Bags – Chai or tea is the main ingredient of this drink. You will need two bags of black tea. 
  • Pumpkin Puree – A PSL is incomplete without pumpkin puree. You will need two tablespoons of homemade pumpkin puree. You can also use a pumpkin puree can. However, make sure you buy the correct one, not pumpkin pie filling!!
  • Dark Brown Sugar – To add sweetness to the chai latte, you will need two tablespoons of dark brown sugar. Dark brown sugar provides a caramelized taste. If you don’t have dark brown sugar at hand, you can also use maple syrup or honey. 
  • Pumpkin Spice Mix – In this beverage, you will also add one teaspoon of pumpkin spice mix, homemade or store-bought, for the quintessential PSL flavor.
  • Vanilla Extract – Vanilla extract makes everything taste better. That’s why we will add one teaspoon of vanilla extract.
