Mr. & Mrs. P's Pumpkin Spiced Latte a la Starbucks




After reading various posts from our friends on Facebook raving about Starbuck's Pumpkin Spiced Latte, we challenged ourselves to come up with our very own recipe. It took a few attempts, but we think we finally perfected it! Give a try and let us know what you think!


Ingredients (per latte):
1 cup of warm milk
1/3 cup espresso (without sugar)
4 tablespoons of pumpkin spice mixture (see recipe below)
Whipped cream
A sprinkle of cinnamon

Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Mixture:
1 can of condensed milk (14 oz. can)
1/2 can of pumpkin puree (15 oz. can)
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice (We bought the Spice Island brand found in the spice isle in Publix.)

Kitchen Essentials:
Stove
Refrigerator
Pot
Espresso maker
Whisk
Bowl
Airtight plastic container
Measuring cups and spoons
Coffee mug

Directions for Pumpkin Spice Mixture:
Whisk all of the ingredients for the pumpkin spice mixture in a bowl. Store the mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Imagine all the money you will save by making this drink at home!

  4. Spice Sherpa- thanks! Our friends and family are obssessed with the Starbucks version. So we decided to try to make our own. No preservatives, additives etc and way cheaper if you make a bunch!
