With the beginning of fall, almost every coffee shop offers pumpkin spiced latte. Have you wondered how to make pumpkin spice latte at home? It is so easy and takes just minutes. Take advantage of the season and taste the fall with our recipes!
Obviously, the main ingredients for this delicious drink are pumpkin and coffee, usually a strong espresso. The milk makes it a latte and the spices add the incredible flavor!
Pumpkin – if you buy canned pumpkin puree, make sure it has no additives. You could roast your own pumpkin and puree it at home.
Coffee – in case you do not have an espresso machine, you can use the coffee that you usually drink. Some people prefer Aeropress coffee makers, others drip coffee machines, French press, cold brew coffee makers, etc. Any strong brewed coffee will do.
Milk – you can use full fat or non-dairy milk (cashew milk, coconut milk, oat milk, soy milk) for a vegan version.
Pumpkin pie spice is sold in supermarkets and is a blend of several spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves.
Additional ingredients like vanilla extract add to the flavor of the pumpkin spice latte.
