I am into pumpkin spice lattes right now. I decided to try to make them at home, but I didn’t know how. The Internet comes to the rescue, yet again!
The below recipe comes from The Kitchn and looks pretty promising. The only changes I would make is to use nonfat milk and cut the sugar down to 1 tablespoon, since I don’t like coffee drinks to be too sweet. Also, I would top it with whip cream, of course.
Here’s the recipe from The Kitchn:
Pumpkin Spice Latte
2 c milk
2 Tbs canned pumpkin OR 1 tsp of Pumpkin Spice Syrup
2 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs vanilla extract
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1-2 shots espresso (about 1/4 cup of espresso or 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee if you don’t have an espresso machine.)
In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin and sugar and cook on medium heat, stirring, until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice … [and] whisk the mixture really well with a wire whisk.
Pour into a large mug or two mugs. Add the espresso on top.
