Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate
This super creamy pumpkin spice white hot chocolate is a perfect Fall treat! Quick and easy to make at home, it’s filled with white chocolate, pumpkin spice and pumpkin puree. Gluten free and vegetarian.
Note: This recipe is NOT dairy free. It was published before Cook Nourish Bliss transitioned to dairy free recipes and remains popular with long time readers. You can try using substitutions to make it dairy free, however I have not tested this myself and can’t say how it will turn out.
The first time I had white hot chocolate was when I was in high school. I was in a coffee shop and at the time hated coffee (my how things have changed).
So I was more than happy to order some hot chocolate instead. Mint white hot chocolate to be exact.
And oh was it good. It came in this super fancy mug, was tinted slightly green, topped with swirls of whipped cream and I basically thought it was the coolest thing ever.
Clearly, since I still remember this many many years later.
My coffee loving self came into existence in college and for one reason or another I haven’t really thought about white hot chocolate since high school.
But since I am in total “I love fall” mode, I developed a serious craving for hot chocolate. And then I started to think that pumpkin spice hot chocolate would be even better.
And then I realized that I only had white chocolate in my pantry and well, that’s when this delicious drink came to be.
It is smooth and creamy and so perfectly chocolatey. It has just a hint of spice and pumpkin flavor that balances out some of the sweetness.
And it is so easy. Like super easy, as in I probably shouldn’t keep too much white chocolate lying around otherwise this may become more than a special treat.

For the hot chocolate:
- 4 cups milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 8 ounces white chocolate, chopped
- ¼ cup pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- whipped cream
- halloween sprinkles
- pumpkin spice marshmallows
- freshly grated nutmeg
- Add the milk, vanilla, white chocolate, pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice to a medium saucepan.
- Set over medium-low heat and cook, whisking occasionally, until smooth and the liquid just barely starts to simmer (you should see it steaming a little bit too).
- Remove from the heat and pour into glasses. Garnish with desired toppings.
The pumpkin will start to separate if you don’t drink the hot chocolate right away (ahem, as you can see from my photos - I took too long!). You can just give it a quick stir and it will come right back together.
