I found this recipe last winter and have been in love with making my own pumpkin spice lattes ever since. This is a perfect warm fall drink. Beware you might become addicted.
What you'll need:
1 cup milk (I used soy milk, you can used almond or rice milk if you wish)
1/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
2 tsp pumpkin spice blend, or to taste
1 tsp cinnamon, or to taste
1 tsp vanilla extract
- Brew a pot of coffee however you like it. (Stronger coffee is better for a latte as there's a lot of milk add to it)
- Combined all ingredients in a small bowl (I used a small mason jar and attached the bottom of my blender to it and blended it)
- Warm ingredients, either by frothing (if you have a frothier) or just put it in the microwave for approx. 1 minute. It should get a little frothy on the top once warmed.
- Get yourself a mug and half fill it with your coffee and the other half with your frothy pumpkin spice milk mixture, or to taste
- Sweeten to taste.
Voila! There you have it homemade pumpkin spice latte!
*I accidentally bought pumpkin pie filling instead of actual pumpkin :s I didn't notice until I opened it and realized it didn't smell how it usually does. I used it anyway and it still turned out pretty good, I would recommend the actual pumpkin over the pie filling though
