Beating Starbucks To The Punch...Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Pumpkin Spice LatteAlong with many of you, I do love my morning cup of coffee (yes, okay, I sometimes have more than one...and I may have another later in the day too!)  I have a few favorites in the flavored variety.  Now that Fall
is almost here, I have to admit
to my weakness for Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Of course you can go directly to Starbucks for a fix...or, you can prepare your own with this recipe from those fabulous folks at Food Network!

Savor the warm spices of this seasonal coffee shop favorite in your very own kitchen (any time of year) and save a few bucks! A little pumpkin puree added to the warm milk gives the latte extra body.

Pumpkin Spice Latte
Total Time:
10 min
5 min
5 min
Yield:1 drink

1 cup milk
2 tablespoons pure pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for sprinkling
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup hot espresso or strong brewed coffee
Sweetened whipped cream, for serving

Combine the milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla in a medium microwave safe bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and vent with a small hole. Microwave until the milk is hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk vigorously until the milk mixture is foamy, about 30 seconds.

Pour the espresso or coffee into a large mug and add the foamed milk. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

I do believe you've beaten them to the punch, Lisa! Sounds like something I would do - I'm always experimenting with coffee flavoring and Pumpkin Spice Latte is one of my faves this time of year. I love the Peppermint Mocha during the holidays though - YUM!

Hope you have a fantastic week ahead!

Morning Lisa.

Not much into pumpkin.  I don't even care for pumpkin pie, my wife on the other hand, she loves it

Good morning Lisa Von Domek,

Thank you for the recipe I do believe you beat Starbucks this year in enjoying Pumpkin Spice latte. I always have one in the fall but prefer my lattes plain. I'll have to try the Peppermint Mocha during the holidays..thanks for reminding me Debe Maxwell, CRS !

Lisa I am not a fan of pumpkin spice, but you got me hooked on the eggnog in my coffee so I am looking forward for eggnog to be available again in the store soon.

Debe Maxwell, CRS I knew this recipe was one you would want to try!  And I tried the Peppermint Mocha last year but it didn't suit my taste buds, just a bit too sweet.  But that's why there are so many flavor choices - something for everyone!

I understand James Dray pumpkin is not for everyone...let me know if your wife tries this recipe though!

I may be trying to hurry Fall along Dorie Dillard I am craving a Pumpkin Spice Latte.  And yes, Debe Maxwell, CRS had a great point with the Peppermint, I know that one is quite popular but it's too sweet for me

Grant Schneider it just puts a smile on your face, doesn't it?...tasting it makes it feel like Fall!

My sister loves this flavor. Me not so much because I don't like the taste of nutmeg.
