Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte ~ 2 Recipes

 

This is my original Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe, gleaned and changed and tweaked from internet sources.pumpkins

2 cups milk or half and half
1 cup very strong coffee (4 tablespoons coffee grounds to 1 cup of hot water)
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 teaspoons sugar or 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (plus some extra for dusting)
1/2 cup of pure pumpkin
Whipped Cream for topping

Get everything ready to combine so that the coffee will be good and hot when you put it all together.

Place milk, pumpkin, spice and vanilla in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds to break up the pumpkin fibers and get the spices all through the mixture. You can do this without the blender but, you’ll be picking pumpkin out of your teeth all day.

Make the coffee and while its good and hot, add the sugar or maple syrup and stir.

Combine the coffee mixture with the pumpkin mixture.  Pour into big mugs. Put a big dollop of sweetened or plain whipped cream on top and then dust with some extra pumpkin pie spice.

Here’s another recipe that is very easy and tastes yummy. This recipe came from a cookbook and I’ve changed it up a bit to suit me.

This is a Pumpkin flavored milk that you add to your coffee like a creamer.

For the Pumpkin Creamer:
1 15-oz. can pumpkin puree
2 c. whole milk
1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 T. pure vanilla extract
1 T. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ground dried ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. allspice

Add everything to a blender and give it a whirl for about 30 seconds. Store in a glass bottle or mason jars, label and refrigerate.

To use the Pumpkin Creamer:

Pour 1/2 cup of the Pumpkin Creamer into a big mug and fill it up with hot coffee.  Top with whipped cream and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice.

    It’s a great idea to make your own pumpkin spice latte. The one’s the Starbucks sells are so expensive. I would rather make my own at home. This recipe looks good. I am going to give it a try! Thanks!
