Pumpkin Lattes At Home

Pumpkin Spice Latte

It’s that time of year again; cozy socks, warm sweaters, and hot drinks! One of the office favorites this year is the Pumpkin Spice Latte! It is very simple to make and very delicious! It even tastes exactly like the Starbucks version! Make sure you follow the recipe exactly for the best results!

 

We found this recipe from A Farmgirl’s DabblesThis recipe makes about 7 to 8 homemade lattes, so you may want to scale it down a bit of you’re just trying it out!

Ingredients

Pumpkin Spice Mixture:

  • 1  15-oz. can pumpkin puree
  • 2 c. whole milk
  • ½  c. sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 2 T. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 T. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. ground dried ginger
  • ½  tsp. ground cloves
  • ¼  tsp. allspice

 

Assemble the Pumpkin Spice Latte:

  • strong coffee
  • slightly sweetened whipped cream
  • cinnamon
  • dark chocolate shavings

 

Preparation

Pumpkin Spice Mixture:

In a blender, combine all the pumpkin spice mixture ingredients. Puree for about 30 seconds. For a smoother mixture, puree for a couple more minutes, or until the mixture is to your desired consistency.

 

Assemble the Pumpkin Spice Latte:

Pour 1/2 cup (more or less, depending on your preference) of the pumpkin spice mixture into a large mug. Microwave for about 20 seconds, then add 1 cup of hot strong brewed coffee and stir. Top with a nice lofty pile of sweetened whipped cream. Sprinkle lightly with a bit of cinnamon.

 

Pour the remaining pumpkin spice mixture into a jar, top with a lid and store in the refrigerator. When ready to make another drink, shake the jar well and repeat the assembly of the pumpkin spice latte. The pumpkin spice mixture will keep pretty well for 1 week in the refrigerator.
