Pumpkin Spice Latte {Starbucks Copycat}

Everyone has been raving about Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte this year! But why go out and buy one when you can make your own at home at a less expensive cost! This Starbucks copycat recipe of their Pumpkin Spice Latte is very similar to the real one! Try it out and let me know what you think! Happy Fall! 

2 cups milk (either half & half, whole milk, reduced fat or skim) 
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree
1-2 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1-4 shots of espresso OR 1-4 ounce of strong coffee
whip cream (optional topping)

Brew your espresso or strong coffee. To make strong coffee you can double the amount of coffee grounds that you normally use. 

In a small sauce pan, combine your milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Heat until simmering, but do not boil. Remove from heat, and stir in the vanilla. Using a blender or milk steamer and blend or steam until frothy.

Pour 1 cup of the pumpkin milk into a coffee cup and add 1-4 shots of espresso OR 1-4 ounces of strong coffee. Top with whip cream and dust with additional pumpkin pie spice.
