Happy first day of November!! How was your Halloween? Did you celebrate or dress up? Unfortunately I didn’t get to celebrate this year which is pretty sad since it’s always been my favourite holiday ever since I was a kid. Also, for the past 2 and 1/2 years, I’ve been thinking of holidays as “what am I gonna bake/post” rather than “how am I gonna celebrate” so I definitely need to work on focusing on things outside of work every now and then.
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte
Now, let’s get into this classic pumpkin spice latte. I was actually planning on updating my Caramel Pumpkin Spice Latte photos, but in the end decided to post a separate recipe for the traditional stuff.
With or without caramel sauce, I can guarantee that homemade pumpkin spice lattes are far better than the ones at the coffee shop.
Hardcore pumpkin spice latte lovers, get excited because with only 6 ingredients and very little effort, you can end up with enough pumpkin spice latte to last days! And have you seen those ridiculous coffee shop prices? This homemade version will cost you less for a whole lot more. The recipe below says 4 servings, but it’s like 4 “grande” sized cups so you can definitely get more than that.
How to Make Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Scratch
Making pumpkin spice lattes from scratch is actually super easy. Start by making the espresso. You don’t exactly need an espresso machine if you don’t have one, I don’t so I just made some dark roast coffee using my coffee maker.
I’ve made this recipe super easy so no specialty tools like a milk frother are needed. Just combine the milk, pumpkin purée, sugar, vanilla and pumpkin spice in a saucepan and heat until it begins steaming.
Now to froth the milk mixture, pour it into a blender and blend on high speed for about 2 minutes until it’s nice and frothy. Then pour some of the espresso into a glass, followed by the pumpkin milk. There you go, your very own pumpkin spice latte! You can drink it plain, with a dust of cinnamon or top with a generous amount whipped cream!
Okay, maybe not that generous.
