Fall Favorite #6: Making Pumpkin Spice Lattes on the Cheap
Doesn't this look lovely?
It does, doesn't it. Well, I didn't actually shoot this picture (unfortunately, my camera's settings were off so I didn't get any superb photos of this process), but this photo looks a lot like the final product of my latest fall favorite! Like I've told you in earlier posts, I LOVE Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but my budget doesn't support my espresso-lovin' habit. Last week, I went on a mission to create my own homemade version. This is a recipe I tweeked to make my own homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte:
Pumpkin Spice Latte
2 cups of 2% milk
1 tsp of Pumpkin Spice
1 tbsp of sugar or sugar substitute
1/2 tsp of vanilla
2 oz of double strength coffee
Heat milk (about two minutes in the microwave)
Add milk, pumpkin spice, sugar, and vanilla into a blender
Blend until frothy. Pour milk mixture into coffee. Enjoy! Add a dollop of whipped cream for extra fun!
If you’re a chocolate-lover, replace the Pumpkin Spice with 2 tbsp of cocoa to create a delicious and frothy hot cocoa.
Makes 2 servings!
