This Keto Pumpkin Spice Bulletproof Latte is so easy to make at home, with a fraction of the sugar of store bought. Add in some extra nutrients and adaptogens to keep your brain function in top shape, and avoid those afternoon crashed. Our version has only 2.5g of sugar, and a total of 4.7g net carbs. Compare that to an average grande Starbucks PSL, that has a whopping 50g of sugar!
Don’t let anyone tell you there’s such a thing as too much pumpkin spice. They can call you basic, they can say whatever they want. You can take comfort in knowing that they are probably just denying themselves this delicious fall keto coffee drink because they’re worried about the sugar in store bought versions. 😉
What they don’t know is that making your keto pumpkin spice coffee at home can supercharge it, for a fraction of the price, with very little sugar involved! In fact, our version has less than 3 grams of sugar in it. Plus, it’s packed with nutrients and adaptogens, giving you super brain power, and a yummy creaminess.
You might have noticed that we have quite the affinity for pumpkin flavored things in our home. If you’re not a big pumpkin fan this time of year, just keep scrolling and we’re sure we’ll draw you in with something else. Take these healthy keto apple crumble bars, for instance. We’ll share with you some tips and tricks about how to make the best keto pumpkin spice coffee ever, as well as some more creative ways to use pumpkin puree this fall.
Here’s What We Used For This Keto Pumpkin Spice Bulletproof Coffee:
- Pure pumpkin puree
- Grassfed butter
- Swerve confectioners (or sweetener of choice)
- Pumpkin pie spice (store bought or homemade, see below for homemade details!)
- Kosher salt
- Navitas Organics superfood adaptogen blend (optional, but recommended for maximum brain power!!)
- Strong brewed coffee
- Vanilla extract
- Ancient Nutrition Pumpkin Spice bone broth collagen (optional but recommended for protein and nutrients). You can use the code ‘afullliving’ for 20% off on their website for your first purchase, one-time use only, excludes subscriptions.

What Is Bone Broth Protein?
We used our favorite pumpkin spice bone broth protein by Ancient Nutrition in this recipe. We love using Ancient Nutrition’s Bone Broth Protein Powders in our day to day. This Bone Broth Protein powder is a nutritional powerhouse. Each scoop contains 20g of protein plus collagen type II (which naturally contains glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid) and 19 amino acids. Long story short – their Bone Broth Protein offers the same gut, joint, and skin support of traditional bone broth in an easy-to-mix powder. It tastes amazing and is also easy for the body to digest!
This no-fuss protein powder is made from all non-GMO, cage free, cruelty free sources and never has any added hormones. Just one scoop of this vanilla bone broth protein contains 20g of protein, and only 2g of net carbs. We love adding it to our keto apple spice noatmeal recipe, but it’s also great in smoothies, in these keto pumpkin pancakes, coffee and baked goods! They make some savory flavors, as well as a “pure” flavor that is essentially just unflavored that you can use in soups, and more. If you don’t have bone broth protein, you can use our code ‘AFullLiving20’ for 20% off your purchase on Ancient Nutrition.
We did receive free product that we used to make this post. As Ancient Nutrition ambassadors, we receive free product and can share our honest opinions about them. We also occasionally participate in sponsored campaigns with the brand over on Instagram!
How Do I Make My Own Pumpkin Spice Blend?
Pumpkin pie spice is easy to make at home with just a few spices! You can also buy it easily at almost any store in the fall season. Here’s some on Amazon. To make your own pumpkin pie spice, combine 4 tbsp of ground cinnamon, 1 tbsp ground ginger, 1 tbsp ground nutmeg, 2 tsp ground allspice, 2 tsp ground cloves and a bit of ground cardamom, try about 1/4 tsp (if you want, we love cardamom!) As always, adjust seasonings to taste.
Is Pumpkin Puree Low Carb and Keto?
People often get tripped up on whether or not a food is “keto” or not. Ketosis is a metabolic state, and everyone is a little different. Chamere can eat a higher carb allotment than me and stay in ketosis, so basically, the answer is that yes, pumpkin puree is low carb and keto friendly in most instances! Just watch out for any sugar additives that some brands may have. Most canned pumpkin puree is pumpkin only, so you don’t have to worry. For 1/2 cup of the standard pumpkin puree that we use in this recipe, there are 10 total carbs and 3g fiber, making 7g net carbs. Divide this across 4 servings and you can see why pumpkin is easily considered keto friendly! Pumpkin is a good source of fiber, and is also very high in nutrients like Vitamin C, A, E, folate and antioxidants. Read more here!
What Is Bulletproof Coffee, and How Does This Keto Pumpkin Spice Bulletproof Coffee Make Me Feel?
Bulletproof coffee is taking the keto community (and many other healthy eating and wellness communities) by storm, and for good reason! Bulletproof coffee is a high fat (and super creamy, delicious!!) coffee filled with healthy fats. Often called butter coffee, the fats use in bulletproof coffee can vary, but often you will find grassfed butter, cream, MCT oil, and/or coconut oil to create a creamy, delicious blend. We also added Navitas Organics superfood adaptogens blend with ashwagandha and reishi mushrooms.
Trust us when we say, this is not your average pumpkin spice latte. It will keep you satiated, alert and focused all day, without the regular caffeine crash. It’s rumored that bulletproof coffee can increase brain function and focus, and suppress your appetite. We can say for ourselves we find this to be true, and we love drinking butter coffee every now and then! This keto pumpkin spice bulletproof coffee is the way to go in terms of taste and brain function.
