Fall is here, which means it’s time for pumpkin spice lattes! This homemade version is easy to make and even more delicious than the ones you can get at a coffee shop. With a blend of pumpkin puree, spices, and espresso, this latte is the perfect way to warm up on a chilly autumn morning.
To make a pumpkin spice latte, you will need:
- 1 shot of espresso
- Steamed milk
- 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
- Whipped cream (optional)
Start by brewing a shot of espresso using your preferred method. While the espresso is brewing, mix together the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl. Once the espresso is ready, pour it into a mug and add the pumpkin mixture. Stir well to combine. Next, add the steamed milk and stir again. Finally, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, if desired.
The result is a cozy and comforting coffee drink that’s perfect for sipping on a brisk fall morning. The combination of pumpkin, spices, and coffee creates a warm and inviting flavor profile that’s sure to put you in a festive mood.
