DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Latte is a fall favorite, but it can be a pricey one. At a coffee shop, it'll cost you about $4.25 for a 12 ounce cup. It’s actually easy to make and much less expensive when you do it yourself. With this recipe, it’s just under $2 per serving.  

Pumpkin Spice Latte
1 serving
 
Ingredients: 
1 tablespoon canned pumpkin purée 
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice  
1 cup milk  
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup  
1/2 tablespoon imitation vanilla extract  
1 shot espresso  

Instructions:  
1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, milk, syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk until the mixture starts to steam.

2. Remove from heat and pour mixture into a blender. Cover and blend for about 15 seconds or until frothy.

3. Make the espresso. 

4. (optional) If you want milk foam to top your latte, pour a few tablespoons of warm milk into a glass jar with a lid. Tightly seal the lid and shake for 30-60 seconds. 

5. Pour coffee into a mug, add the foam, and sprinkle with a little pumpkin pie spice.
