Pumpkin Spice Lattes (just like Starbucks)

Okay, so, I found this recipe for "pumpkin spice lattes" and I have to admit I was a little sceptical when they said it was just like Starbucks. Because lets face's hard to beat Starbucks. So, anyway, I decided to try it and it was fabulous. Absolute bliss. I did make some changes to the recipe so here's my version.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

2 c. milk
2 T. canned pumpkin
6 T. sugar
2 T. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. strong coffee for each mug

In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin, and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice, transfer to a glass blender. Process for 15 seconds until foamy.
Pour into a couple of mugs. Add the coffee. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg or both.


  1. That sounds amazing! I wonder if I can make a hot chocolate version since we don't drink coffee...

  2. Mmmm...pumpkin hot chocolate sounds yummy!
