Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

pumpkin-spice-latte-recipe2

It’s that time of year — when pumpkin spice lattes pop up on Starbucks menu boards and I gaze longingly at anyone walking by with a cup, wondering which of the festive flavors they’ve picked. Of course as a freelancer I don’t have the budget for a daily take-out latte, so it’s nice to know that not only can I brew a good cup of coffee at home, I can whip up an authentic pumpkin spice latte to sip at my desk, or share with friends, at a fraction of the cost.

Although it seems like a coffee shop extravagance, it really doesn’t require special skills to make your own. If you don’t have a coffee maker, use instant — I prefer instant espresso, which has a smoother flavor.

Ingredients:
3 cups whole milk, warmed
1 Tbsp. sugar, or to taste
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
3/4-1 cup double-strength brewed coffee
lightly whipped cream
a shake of pumpkin pie spice

Directions:
Combine the hot milk, sugar, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice in a blender; blend until frothy. Pour the mixture into 2-3 coffee mugs, filling them about 2/3 full. Divide the coffee between the mugs, and top with whipped cream and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice. Serves 2-3.
