The Best Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Fall has arrived!  And with fall, comes one of my favorite things about this season - the excuse to make my version of the most delicious homemade pumpkin spice latte, ever.
  

If you love a good pumpkin spice latte, but can't justify spending a lot of cash on a fancy shmancy one from the coffee shop, no problem.  Whip up your own that you are going to love even better, not to mention saving a few dollars while you're at it.

Here's what you'll need:
(Yields: 2 Servings)
2 cups milk
3 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree
1-4 tablespoons sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice mix*
1/2 cup hot coffee
whipped cream
  
*If you don't have pumpkin spice in your pantry, you can make your own using this recipe!
 
 
 
 Directions:
 
 Add milk to a medium saucepan.


 Add pumpkin puree and sugar to the milk.


  Whisk well.  Cook over medium heat until very hot, but do not allow mixture to boil.
 
 
 Remove from heat; add vanilla extract.


 Next, add pumpkin spice. Whisk.


 Next, add coffee.  Whisk well.


 Pour into two mugs.


 Add a little whipped cream, or, you could add a lot of whipped cream like I do. :)


Garnish with a sprinkle of pumpkin spice and sugar.  
Go light a pumpkin spice scented candle, kick your feet up and enjoy!

Oooh, this looks so good! I haven't had one of these yet this season because I couldn't believe how pricey they were at Starbucks. I'll just have to make my own :)
