Iced Pumpkin Spice Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso


This Iced Pumpkin Spice Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso is spin off of the extremely popular Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso from Starbucks! I made my own version for the blog and it quickly became one of my most viewed and recreated recipes EVER! I was soooo happy so many of you love this drink. It’s definitely a staple in my kitchen and I love that it became one in yours too! Save money, customize it exactly how you like, and spend less time waiting in drive throughs. Seriously win-win-win!

The details on this drink…

Homemade pumpkin spice brown sugar syrup, shaken up with espresso (link to my espresso machine here, and a how-to tutorial on my Instagram here) and an ice cube until frothy. Pour over more ice and add oat milk, cashew milk, or any other nondairy milk you prefer. This creamy iced latte is perfectly sweet (not TOO sweet), perfectly spiced, without any overwhelming artificial pumpkin flavour (Starbucks I’m looking at you) and just absolutely dreamy for warm September afternoons.

Truly perfect served with my new soft-batch pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon loaf, or just taken with you on the go running errands. I swear a drink like this can make even the most boring errands seem fun.

Super customizable!

I love this drink exactly as written below, but if you like your coffee sweeter, add another spoonful of syrup. And if you prefer it less sweet, just do one spoonful total. The syrup is so easy you can whip it up on Sunday evening for the week ahead and then you can have this latte every morning of the week! Saving you time and money, and honestly? Homemade is just always better!

Iced Pumpkin Spice Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso

  • Author: Liv B
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 lattes


Homemade pumpkin spice brown sugar syrup, shaken up with freshly brewed espresso, poured over ice, topped with creamy oat milk.


Pumpkin Spice Brown Sugar Syrup:

  • 4 tbsp lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 double shots of espresso
  • a mason jar or cocktail shaker with a few ice cubes
  • 2 glasses filled half way with ice
  • oat milk (as much as you need to top up the serving cup, approx 2 cups of milk total)


  1. In a small frying pan or pot on the stove, add the syrup ingredients and heat on medium-high, whisking to combine. Once it starts simmering, lower the heat to medium-low and simmer about 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until sugar has completely dissolved and syrup has thickened just slightly. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. Brew two shots of espresso or about 1/2 cup of very strong coffee. Add to the mason jar with 4 tbsp of syrup, swirl around quickly, then add a few ice cubes and shake vigorously for about 1 minute, until foamy. Store the remaining syrup in a small jar in the fridge up to 1 week.
  3. Divide the espresso mixture between the serving glasses. Add oat milk to top it up. Stir and enjoy!
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
