It’s that time of year again: pumpkin EVERYTHING! And it just wouldn’t be complete without pumpkin spice lattes. I love them but they’re on the pricey side. For a Tall at Starbucks, you’ll pay anywhere between $4.25 and $4.75. As sweet as they come, the price tag can leave something to be desired. With this quick and easy recipe, not only can you make 2 for the price of 1, but you can also adjust the sweetness to your heart’s desire.
Chances are you already have some of these ingredients on hand but we estimate this will only cost you around $2 per serving. This recipe actually includes pumpkin (chances are your local coffee shop doesn’t) and you can adjust the sweet and spice so it’s just right.
Combine milk, sugar, pumpkin, spice, and vanilla in a bowl and stir. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes until hot (you can also heat on stovetop). Grab 2 cozy coffee mugs (or 1 if you don’t want to share) with your coffee or espresso and pour the milk over it. Top it with the whipped cream and then sprinkle a little more pumpkin spice on top.
Enjoy sipping, savoring, and saving…happy pumpkin season!
