Pumpkin Spice is a major thing here in the States, basically from September through February. Maybe even into March.

Pumpkin Spice season is practically a national event at this point, and doubly so for the flavoring in coffee. It’s available at every, single coffee shop, and in every brand of loose coffee and/or instant cups. And now we have a Ballistic Keto MCT-boosted version that is super easy to make, loaded with good fats, and doesn't contain the 30+ grams of sugar that are in the small sized cup down at your local coffee joint.

You're welcome.

  • 1 c (8 fl oz/237 ml) strong brewed coffee, hot
  • 1/4 c (2 fl oz/ 59 ml) heavy cream
  • 1 scoop (1/3 oz/ 10 g) Ballistic Keto caramel-flavored MCT Oil Powder (or plain MCT powder + 1/4-1/2 tsp caramel extract, to taste, and a heavy pinch sea salt)
  • 1 tbsp pure pumpkin purée (not the pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice blend of your choice (My favorite is the Spice Islands brand, which is very ginger-heavy.)
  • 4 drops vanilla liquid stevia, or your favorite sweetener to taste
  • whipped heavy cream and ground cinnamon to garnish, if desired


Easiest method:

  1. Heat the heavy cream in the microwave in 30 second increments until it's steaming hot.
  2. In a blender bottle, add all ingredients except the garnish.
  3. Put the lid on and shake until well combined, a good fifteen to thirty seconds should do it.
  4. Open and pour into a cup and garnish as desired.
  5. Enjoy!

Stovetop method:

  1. Add the heavy cream to a small saucepan and begin to heat over high.
  2. Whisk the pumpkin, spices, and MCT powder into the heating cream very well. It will dissolve as you whisk and the cream heats.
  3. Once the cream mixture is steaming, whisk in the hot coffee and sweetener until it's well combined.
  4. Pour into a cup and garnish as desired.
  5. Enjoy!

Immersion Blender method:

  1. Heat the heavy cream in the microwave in 30 second increments until it's steaming hot.
  2. Add all the ingredients except garnish to your blender cup.
  3. Insert your immersion blender into the cup and turn it on.
  4. Blend until it's well combined and frothy.
  5. Pour into a cup and garnish as desired.
  6. Enjoy!
