Since we can’t have PSLs all year long, the good ol’ cinnamon dolce latte is a good substitute if the craving hits in, say, March. Not only can the spicy bev be made with any alt-milk, but there’s also a version for those searching for low-calorie fall Starbucks drinks: Ask your barista to make it “skinny” (new name ideas, anyone?) with nonfat milk, sugar-free syrup, and no whip.

Pumpkin Hot Chocolate

If you’re looking for fall drinks without coffee, we nominate this off-menu option. (Who doesn’t love ordering from the Starbucks secret menu?) Made by adding a few pumps of pumpkin syrup to a standard hot chocolate (or white hot chocolate!), it tastes like fall in a cup. Like any hot chocolate, it can also be made nonfat or with nondairy milk.

Caramel Apple Spice

It’s been on the menu for, well, ever, but some people still don’t realize you can order this tasty drink year-round. If you haven’t tried one, it’s steamed apple juice with cinnamon dolce syrup, whipped cream, and caramel sauce, and tastes like apple pie in drink form. During fall, you can also order a Caramel Apple Pumpkin Spice—a.k.a. the same drink spiked with pumpkin spice syrup. For a lower-calorie drink, you could skip the whipped cream here, but TBH, it’s part of what makes it so magical. Also, note that the caramel sauce is made with dairy, so this one can’t be made dairy-free.

Chai Latte

Thankfully, the beloved chai latte is also available all year long, hot or iced. But the cinnamon, cloves, and other warm spices make it especially comforting during fall. (Also, try adding a pump of—you guessed it—pumpkin spice sauce for a seasonal twist.) It’s delicious with coconut milk, but you can have it made with any milk or alt-milk of your choice.

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Flavored Nondairy Creamer

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Flavored Nondairy Liquid Coffee Creamer

Great news: Both the chain’s regular and nondairy pumpkin spice creamers are back this year. Made with a blend of almond and oat milks, the latter promises to be just as creamy and spicy as the original. This may be the best option for those looking to find vegan fall Starbucks drinks options.

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew Concentrate

Also back this year: this cold brew concentrate flavored with pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. All you have to do is dilute it with water to your taste and add milk or creamer for an instant fall beverage right in your kitchen.

Starbucks Maple Pecan Flavored Coffee

Starbucks Maple Pecan Medium Roast Ground Coffee

We also love to make Starbucks coffees using their flavored beans. For an at-home drink that isn’t pumpkin (gasp), we present this equally seasonal ground coffee with notes of maple and toasted pecan. Feeling those fall vibes yet? We thought so.
