The 27 Best Vegan Pumpkin Spice Products Worth the Hype

From store-bought cheesecake to rice crispy treats, these vegan pumpkin spice products are worth the hype.



This article was originally published by

For those who were holding out, it’s officially September, making it perfectly acceptable to sip on something cinnamony and sweet without feeling like jumping the gun. Pumpkin spice has become as synonymous to fall as gingerbread is to Christmas and chocolates are to Valentine’s Day. Well-crafted pumpkin-flavored products spark joy. They don’t just taste good, they make us feel cozy, comforted, and a little bit celebratory. And we’re here for that. Granted, there are a lot of pumpkin-infused products, and not all of them are winners. Here are the 27 best vegan pumpkin spice products you can get this year.


1Daiya Pumpkin Spice Cheezecake

Daiya may be known for its vegan cheese, but the line of cheesecakes it introduced in 2016 really show off what the company can do. Made with a classic graham cracker crust and a dense, decadently creamy cheesecake filling infused with just the right amount of pumpkin spice, this treat always makes an appearance at fall potlucks and dinner parties.

The fan-favorite Pumpkin Pecan Spice flavor has returned for its encore! These soft-baked, two-bite morsels are gluten- and refined sugar-free, but that doesn’t mean they’re not addictive.

Califia Farms’ cold brews and creamers

Califia’s Pumpkin Spice Latte Cold Brew is the vegan equivalent of the Starbucks PSL. It’s a universal signal that fall has come. Regardless of the fact that this popular bottled beverage is available beginning in late August, the sweet warming spices of this almond milk-based cold brew make us want to jump into a pile of autumnal leaves. The brand’s line of pumpkin spice-flavored almond milk creamers have also returned.

4Purely Elizabeth Pumpkin Cinnamon Ancient Grain Granola

While we like to keep pumpkin spice out of our yogurt, we don’t mind a fall-flavored crunchy topping. This lightly sweet granola incorporates organic pumpkin seeds and cinnamon into the mix—which means it tastes like real food, not a food lab approximation. We love the texture of this granola—not too chunky and perfect for sprinkling on everything from dairy-free yogurt to ice cream. Of course, there’s always the bag-to-mouth option.

Kite Hill Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese

Bagels and all that accompany them are controversial. To toast, or not to toast? Is a blueberry bagel even a bagel? Does New York really make the best bagels? Are Montreal-style bagels better? Kite Hill’s new Plant-Based Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese does not escape this controversy. Do the flavors of fall belong on a bagel? That’s up to you to decide. One thing we can all agree on: this will make an excellent cream cheese frosting for vegan cream cheese-stuffed pumpkin muffins.

6Peet’s Pumpkin Latte

Craving a PSL? You won’t find a vegan version at Starbucks (it’s literally impossible—the pumpkin syrup contains dairy), but you can satisfy this craving at Peet’s. The coffee chain is rolling out two vegan-friendly pumpkin-flavored beverages for fall: the Pumpkin Latte (vegan when ordered with your favorite non-dairy milk) and the Pumpkin Cold Brew Oat Latte with Brown Sugar Jelly (vegan as-is). Bring on the cozy.

13Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bagels

Pumpkin everything has officially arrived at Trader Joe’s, and while there are about a dozen different vegan pumpkin products that deserve a place in your cart, these pumpkin bagels deserve to be placed on top (for practical and figurative reasons—you don’t want to smush them!).

Not much of a baker? Lean on this gluten-free baking mix to help you out.

21Three Wishes’ pumpkin cereal

High-protein cereal is sneaking its way into grocery stores, but some of the options contain whey, so they’re a no-go if you’re seeking a plant-based option. The gluten-free and grain-free brand Three Wishes makes its o-shaped cereal with chickpea and pea protein, delivering eight grams per serving. The seasonal pumpkin spice flavor tastes lightly sweet with a hint of the famous fall spices. It didn’t get soggy in milk, so it maintained a pleasant crunch throughout breakfast.Find out more


22Blume Pumpkin Spice Blend

Sometimes you want a warm and comforting drink, but without the jolt of caffeine. Blume’s caffeine-free and superfood-powered powdered “lattes” are a good fit for these late afternoon cozy cravings. The Pumpkin Spice blend is made with real organic pumpkin and spices and is sweetened with maple syrup, but at one gram of sugar, it’s not overly saccharine. We added it to warm oat milk and foamed it up using a hand milk frother. No, it’s not as creamy as a beverage you’d purchase from the cafe, but scratches the itch and saves you at least $4.

23LÄRABAR Pumpkin Pie bar

24La Colombe Oatmilk Pumpkin Spice Latte

We don’t always have the time to wait in line for a latte (even mobile ordering is a slight time suck), which is why we always keep a canned latte or two in the fridge. This year, coffee roaster La Colombe launched a decadently creamy oat milk version of its Pumpkin Spice Latte. We love that it’s not a total sugar bomb and that the coffee is nitro cold brewed, so it goes down smooth.
