As soon as the leaves start falling I begin craving anything warm, spicy, and comforting! As convenient as it may be to stop off at Starbucks on the way home, it’s so much nicer to stay in pajamas on a Sunday morning and whip up some homemade pumpkin spice lattes. –It’s easy, trust me!
Pumpkin Spice Lattes (Makes enough for 2)
- 2 cups of milk of choice (I used soy)
- 2-4 tbsp of pumpkin puree
- sweetener of choice to taste (I used 2 tbsp maple syrup)
- 1 tsp pumpkin spice
- ½ tsp cinnamon (because more cinnamon is always better)
¼ cup espresso or 1 cup strong coffee (I used a ratio of 4 tsbp of coffee grounds to 1 cup of boiled water in my french press)
Combine milk, pumpkin puree, and sweetener in a saucepan.
Cook on medium heat while stirring, until steaming.
Bring to a boil and add spices.
Pour in espresso or strong coffee.
Divide into two mugs and top with cinnamon.
