Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes – #BecauseFall

Don’t you just love that freshly brewed coffee smell? Nothing says fall quite like a baking pumpkin in the oven with a pot of coffee simmering on the counter. So of COURSE, I had to find us a recipe for homemade pumpkin spice coffees!

This one looks incredible. My oldest son tried something similar just last weekend, and he was absolutely RAVING. I cannot wait to do this myself later this afternoon. If you try on your own, send pictures! Hopefully we all end up curled around steaming deliciousness before the day is over.

Fun fact – did you realize (because I totally did NOT) that the magic behind the pumpkin spiced latte is actually a creamer base? That means you can make yourself an entire jug to enjoy for the whole season! Or, if you’re like me, likely a week or less until you need to make a fresh batch!

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Milk
  • One Pie Pumpkin, baked and scooped once cooled (or pumpkin puree from a can if you prefer) – use 1/4 cup of the puree, and then save the rest for another festive fall treat!
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • One gorgeous mug of COFFEE 
  • optional: caramel syrup, cinnamon, whipped cream for garnish –but is it really optional? I mean. . .

Evidently, this isn’t the sweetest of recipes, so throw caution to the wind. You know what you like!

All my thanks to the blog “Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom” for sharing their recipe with us via Pinterest! Make sure to check it out for other amazing recipes and ideas.

But in the meantime, cheers! Here’s to a cozy Monday, everybody!
