Pumpkin Spice Latte

Raise your hand if you love girly fall drinks! (raises hand) It's no secret that I'm a sucker for seasonal hot drinks but I'll be honest I've never been the biggest fan of Starbucks- it's way too sweet for me and just never that satisfying. If I'm ever out and need a coffee I always stop at Dunkin or a store that has Green Mountain Coffee- If I do end up at Starbucks I'll just get a hot tea. I also hate spending money on useless things- drinking $7 dollars worth of sugar water seems like a waste so I decided to make my own Pumpkin Spice Latte! This turned out so delicious, I'll definitely be making it again! 

Recipe: Makes 2 Cups

2 Tablespoons Pumpkin puree 
1/2 Teaspoon Pumpkin pie spice
2 Tablespoons Vanilla extract
2 cups Whole milk
1/2 a cup of coffee 


1. Heat the pumpkin & spices in a small saucepan over medium heat- stir constantly about 2-3 minutes
2. Warm the milk and vanilla gently
3. Blend the milk until frothy
4. Pour half the coffee in mug topped with the frothed milk & pumpkin mixture
5. Top with whipped cream & a sprinkle of cinnamon - I also put in a little pumpkin spice cookie stick! You can find these at any store in the cookie aisle. 

* You can add sugar to this drink but I find its sweet enough without it!

Do you have any fall drinks you love? I'd love to know!



  1. What an awesome recipe for the season! I'll have to try it out!

  2. I'm just like you and I don't really like Starbucks drinks either!! (Which is ironic since I collect their mugs when I travel!) I actually didn't have a PSL until last year... I thought it was gross lol. But yours sounds much better!! :)

  5. I can't wait to make this! I loveee PSLs but have never tried to make one on my own!

  6. I actually cannot with coffee haha but I love chai lattes. I'm interested in making a pumpkin spice chai latte soon. I think it'd be so good.

  7. This is a great recipe! So much healthier and you save some money too! While I am dairy-free, I can easily see this working well with all the other different milk alternatives out there too. Thank you for sharing!


  8. I love pumpkin spice lattes, thank you for teaching me to make my own <3

  9. I have never seen a PSL look so cute before!

  10. I'm actually one of the rare few who doesn't care for PSL's, lol! My fave drink for fall is just a plain old vanilla latte!

  11. YES!!!! I cannot drink them at Starbucks becuase of all the sugar! I love how this is reduced on 'stuff' in the drink! I'm definitely going to try it out!

  12. Literally need this NOW! This is a genius recipe and I'll absolutely be making this - thank you thank you thank you!

  13. I'm not a fan of pumpkin, but this looks so delicious I may have to try it!
