Luckily, you don’t have to wait in line or break the bank to enjoy this delightful treat. With our homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe, you can recreate the magic in the comfort of your own home.

Ingredients

1. Milk (Dairy or Non-Dairy): The milk, whether it’s velvety dairy or a creamy non-dairy alternative, provides the foundation of our latte, offering a luscious, soothing base for the flavors to dance upon.

2. Espresso: The concentrated coffee infuses the latte with a bold and invigorating kick, balancing the sweetness of the other ingredients.

3. Pumpkin Puree: A velvety, sunset-hued pumpkin puree brings an earthy autumn note, ensuring each sip embodies the essence of the season.

4. Granulated Sugar: The granulated sugar sweetens the brew to your preferred level of indulgence, adding a delightful touch of sweetness.

5. Vanilla: A dash of aromatic vanilla extract elevates the aroma and imbues the latte with a subtle note of sophistication, inviting you to savor each sip.

6. Pumpkin Pie Spice: This medley of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, known as pumpkin pie spice, is a fragrant symphony that transforms the latte into a warm, spicy embrace of autumn flavors.

7. Whipped Cream: The whipped cream, a fluffy cloud of dairy delight, crowns your latte like a luxurious blanket, offering a rich and creamy contrast to the spiced layers below.

1. Preparing the Pumpkin Milk Blend:

  • In a small to medium-sized saucepan, combine 2 cups of milk, 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree, and 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.
