It’s officially fall and I’ve yet to have a pumpkin spice latte — from Starbucks. Instead of spending $4 for a cup of pumpkin-flavored syrup, milk and espresso, I decided it’d be more fun and frugal to make my own pumpkin spice latte.
After making Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookies with a can of organic pumpkin, I had about a cup of leftovers. What do you do with a cup of leftover pumpkin mush? You mix it with milk, coffee, sugar, vanilla and spices and drink it!
I searched for homemade pumpkin spice latte recipes and found one from one of my favorite websites, The Kitchn. It took all of about five minutes to make and yielded about two cups of the best pumpkin drink ever. I substituted “pumpkin pie spice” with my own concoction of ground ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cloves would have rounded out the flavor, but hey, you use what you have on hand!
What’s your go-to coffee drink?
