It’s finally Fall and I’ve got just one thing on my mind………. Pumpkin Spice Lattes! Yes, it’s Fall’s favorite drink and I’m sure we’ll all be waiting in line at Starbucks over the coming months for a fix of this warm, cozy drink that feels like pure happiness. My life these days is quite hectic from juggling multiple interior design clients on both the East and West coast, so a trip to the coffee shop is not always on my agenda. However, I’ve been making my own latte concoctions at home and have tried and tweaked several recipes to find the perfect one.
Here’s my recipe for the easiest and most delish pumpkin spice latte at home:
- 2 tbs pure pumpkin puree
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup hot espresso
- Whipped cream for serving (optional)
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine the milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, spice and vanilla. Stir and simmer for a few minutes until the liquid is hot! Pour into a blender and add the prepared espresso. Blend for a couple minutes until thick and frothy.
Pour into a mug and enjoy with a dollop of whipped cream or all on it’s own.
Wishing you all a wonderful fall season. Enjoy!
