Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Latte

Autumn still life with mug of coffee and pumpkins

In Alabama, we waste no time when it comes to fall. While it may take a while for the temperature to drop, as soon as September 1 hits, the football games are playing, pumpkins are being bought, and of course, pumpkin spice lattes are being purchased. For many, that means they are hitting their local Starbucks drive-thru on a daily basis. It’s no secret this can quickly add up to about $40 a week, which is sure to cut into your fall home décor budget. Save your pennies for pillows and whip up this at-home pumpkin spice latte recipe instead!

The Pumpkin Sauce

There are several steps to perfecting the pumpkin spice latte and the first is whipping up the pumpkin sauce. It couldn’t be simpler, and you only need three ingredients. You will need pumpkin puree, sugar, and pumpkin spice seasoning. Add these ingredients to a saucepan and simmer for about 10 minutes. This is sure to make your home smell like fall! Once the sauce is complete in the pan, move to a blender and blend until fully smooth. This will stay good and delicious in the fridge for about seven days.

The Coffee

The key to a delectable latte is espresso. If you don’t have an espresso machine at home, buy espresso pods you can brew from your coffee pot or buy an inexpensive espresso machine for around $10. Pour the warmed and froth milk into a mug. Any milk will do, whether your favorite is oat, skim, whole, or almond. In a separate cup, mix the pumpkin sauce and espresso. Once combined, add the mixture to the frothed milk. Mix together. Now, you can customize your delicious drink. Top it with whipped cream, cinnamon, or extra pumpkin spice seasoning. This is the perfect fall drink that won’t break the budget.
