Pumpkin Spice Latte

So to continue on with my pumpkin addiction we now have a hot drink! I always see on fb people ranting and raving about the Starbucks version. I'll have you know that I tried it one night and it was AWFUL! It was the worse money I've ever spent on anything and I had to force myself to finish it. From what I've heard it clearly wasn't made right.

Then comes this Starbucks run needed and its WAY cheaper! I do suggest drinking it all on the same day/time you make it. I split it and had the rest on another day and the pumpkin solidified, but perhaps if you did re-heat it on the stove again it would be fine.

Pumpkin Spice Latte-shared from Newlyweds
2 cups milk
3 tbsp pumpkin puree
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup strong coffee or expresso
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp vanilla

Place milk, pumpkin, and sugar in small saucepan, stir. Heat to steaming. Stir in spice and vanilla. Pour in coffee. Stir and place into mugs. Top with whipped cream if you wish.

**This was by far MUCH MUCH better than the Starbucks fiasco...I would definitely make it again, I just need more pumpkin!


  1. You are not alone in the dislike of the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, I think its revolting!! And I love pumpkin! I'll have to give this one a shot :)

  2. Ok your so right about the pumpkin spice latte's at starbucks, I got one last friday and couldn't even drink it, I can't figure out that fake weird flavor, yuck.

    So glad for this substitute recipe.
