Pumpkin Spice Latte

I’ve been a fan of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte for years but if you are one of the Starbucks fans who can’t wait for fall to enjoy the warm goodness in a cup, here’s a tasti way to make your own year round.

You can always change the sugar and fat content quite easily.

makes 1-2 servings

2 cups milk
3 tablespoons canned pumpkin or 2 tablespoon Pumpkin Spice Syrup (your choice)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1-2 shots espresso  (¼ cup)

*Note: if you are using the Pumpkin Spice Syrup, use less sugar or it’ll be too sweet & if you don’t have an espresso machine, ½ cup strong brewed coffee will do just fine.

  • In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin and sugar and cook on medium heat, stirring, until steaming.
  • Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice, transfer to a blender and process for 15 seconds until foamy. If you don't have a blender, just whisk the mixture with a wire whisk.
  • Pour into a large mug or two mugs. Add the espresso on top.
  • Top with whipped cream, sprinkle pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, or cinnamon on top.
