With the changing leaves, chilly mornings and our infinity for boots at an all time high, it must mean that fall is well underway in Chicago! But nothing kicks off this season like Starbucks unveiling their coveted Pumpkin Spice Latte. Nothing compliments a lovely fall day like having one of these warming up your hand. But like any Starbucks drink addiction, these can put a little dent into the budget. Have no fear, we are sharing a little at home recipe that is easy to brew and still gives you that same heaven in a cup taste!
Pumpkin Spice Latte
- 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin puree
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons of white sugar (or sugar substitute)
- 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
- 1 to 2 shots of brewed espresso (1/2 cup of coffee if you do not have an espresso machine)
Brew your espresso, or coffee. Meanwhile, in a sauce pan, combine milk, pumpkin, vanilla, sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Cook on medium heat until steaming. Whisk until desired “frothiness”, careful not to bring to a boil. Pour the espresso or coffee into your favorite mug, pour the pumpkin spiced milk over it
