In this step-by-step video I show you how easy it is to make homemade pumpkin spice lattes!
It’s crazy how the first sales of Pumpkin Spice Lattes at coffee shops every year have become the indication of the start of fall, perhaps just as much as cooler weather or changing leaves. Living in Arizona, we don’t get a fall. I have to rely on Autumn-themed candles and recipes to get myself into the season and this recipe for Pumpkin Spice Lattes is no different. It just makes you feel like fall in the best possible way. I couldn’t believe how easy it is to make these babies at home. I mean, you don’t even have to get dressed or wait in line to indulge in a steaming cup of pumpkin and coffee goodness. You can make this recipe with any kind of milk, that means any percentage of fat or even non-dairy milk and it will still be delicious. If you’re diet-conscious, skip the whipped cream and lower the sugar or swap it out with a sweetener of your choice. You’re going to love making Pumpkin Spice Lattes at home!
Taste: Coffee + pumpkin + spices just tastes like you’re drinking the goodness of fall.
Texture: The latte is creamy while the whipped cream on top is like a cloud.
Ease: Very easy!
Appearance: Who wouldn’t want to take a sip?
Pros: Wonderful homemade version of a favorite fall treat. No getting dressed or standing in line or paying a small fortune.
Would I make this again? I’ve already made this a few times.
How to make Video: Pumpkin Spice Lattes
1 1/2 cups milk (any percentage dairy milk or any non-dairy milk)
4 tablespoons pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup hot brewed strong coffee or espresso
Sweetened whipped cream
In a small saucepan, combine the milk, pumpkin, sugar, spice, and vanilla over medium-high heat. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Whisk vigorously until it starts to froth, about 1 minute. For a more frothy consistency, use an immersion blender or electric mixer to beat the milk mixture until the desired frothy consistency. Divide the milk mixture between two large mugs.
Slowly pour about 1/2 cup coffee into each mug. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Serve.
