It’s time, and it seems to creep up every year for it to start earlier… It’s time for everything, Pumpkin Spice! This Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte is one of my favorites for replacing my Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, which is at least 13 points depending on your milk and size, whereas this version is only 3 Weight Watchers points.

Now, I have always said my favorite part of Weight Watchers is that I can still have the things I love, but there are some things that I love a lower point version. Using Premier protein shakes to make my lattes has been a game-changer. And let’s face it, there is a lot of sugar in Starbucks that our bodies don’t need. There are days I struggle to get my protein in, so adding the extra 30 grams of protein with my coffee is fantastic.
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
When starting a new weight loss program or diet change, consult a doctor or physician about personal health concerns. It is a good idea to have blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and hormones checked at a physical before and during being on the WW program.
New to Weight Watchers?? Also known as WW, a weight loss program uses points assigned to food to track and lose weight. When you sign up, you take an assessment that will assign you a point value to eat daily and a weekly allowance. You can carry over 4 points from the day into your weekly budget, which is handy when you need more points.
I have been on Weight Watchers since 2011. They have had Points Plus Value, WW Smartpoints, Blue Plan, Green Plan, Purple Plan, WW Personal Points, and now Weight Watchers Points. The new Weight Watchers Simplified plan is the new program launched in November 2022, similar to previous plans like WW Smartpoints, with some color plans. ( You can see the Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods 2023 -> here)
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime goal weight several times but stopped operating the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on.

Homemade pumpkin spice latte Ingredients
Canned Pumpkin Puree– You could use fresh, pureed pumpkin, but it would need to be pureed. I find canned convenient to use.
Coffee– You can also do espresso shots, Cold Brew, or decaf coffee will also work in this drink if you do not want the caffeine. (You have no idea how excited I was to find you could buy espresso shots online!)
Fat-Free Whipped Topping– The whipped topping can affect the calorie and Weight Watchers points to your mocha drink, so double-check the nutritional information.
How To Make ww pumpkin spice latte
Start by making your coffee however you choose. I used a Keriug to brew mine, but you could do an espresso shot or coffee from a regular coffee pot.
In your cup, add your pumpkin and some of the seasonings. You can add in the spices later. I was waiting for my coffee to brew.
Brew your coffee and pour it into the cup that has the pumpkin puree in the bottom. I used a clear Venti Starbucks cup.
Mix the coffee into the seasonings and pumpkin with a frother or whisk. I realized after making this that a frother would make this much faster and smoother, so I had to order one. (one of those moments that took years to come to realize)
Once the coffee and pumpkin are mixed, pour in your Caramel protein shake.
Mix the coffee pumpkin with the protein shake with a frother or whisk to remix everything.
If you want, top with whipped topping and sprinkle with pumpkin pie seasoning. Make sure you scan your Whipped Topping to know how many points the brand is.
How to Serve Weight Watchers Pumpkin Spice Latte
Serve over ice to make an iced latte; add ice to the current cup or pour it into a new cup to make it pretty. Makes it a delicious Weight Watchers iced coffee recipe!
Throw in the blender with ice to serve more as a Frappicuno; add nonfat Greek yogurt to thicken it up and add more protein.
Options For Profee Pumpkin Spice Latte
- Whipped topping– My whipped topping was three tablespoons for zero Weight Watchers points. Use your app to figure out what your best amount is.
- Substitute with a vanilla protein shake or pumpkin pie shake instead of a caramel shake.
- Top with crumbled graham crackers *If you use a lot, this will add points, but I use a minimal amount, so I skip tracking it.*
Starbucks pumpkin spice latte Weight Watchers points
According to the Weight Watchers app and Weight Watchers recipe points calculator, the lowest opinion for a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is 13 points, which go up with different sizes or kinds of milk.
