Pumpkin Spice Latte at Home
You know how I had 1/2 a can of pumpkin leftover from the pumpkin spice muffins? Well, I had lots of ideas for it. Stir it in some oatmeal, make some fudge, make a tiny pie...the list goes on and on. I decide to keep it simple and make the drink that inspired the muffins.
Here's how you can make your own pumpkin spice latte at home:
*strongly brewed coffee or espresso
*milk (I used almond milk)
*canned pumpkin puree
*sweetener (I used off brand Equal)
*pumpkin pie spice
Fill your mug about 1/3-1/2 full with milk and heat it in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds. Stir in 2 tablespoons of pumpkin, sweetener, splash vanilla and about 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. Add your strong coffee and fill to the top of the mug. Top with whipped topping, caramel drizzle and pumpkin pie spice.
Call yourself a barista all day if you want, because you just made an awesome drink (on the cheap)!
