It’s such a tradition when the weather becomes cool to grab my first pumpkin spice latte of the season. Once I discovered how amazing it is to make it homemade I decided to make this my go-to recipe.

Ingredients:
• 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree

• 1 teaspoon anise
• cinnamon for garnish

In a medium saucepan combine 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree with 1 cup of whole milk. Heat on medium stirring constantly as to not let the milk burn and ingredients combine. Add 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice, 1 teaspoon anise and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract. Continue to stir for about 3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and set aside.

We used a french press and added 6 scoops of ground coffee with water brought to a boil. If your milk frother has the space, add 1/2 cup of milk.

To combine the ingredients, first add the desired amount of the pumpkin spice cream. Next fill the rest of the mug with the coffee and coat the top with the frothed milk. Garnish with cinnamon and enjoy!

    For a pumpkin lover like me, this is a dream come true. And it’s surely way better than anything premade or premixed that you’d get at the store.

    Dana says:

    Is it just me, or was it a lot of pumpkin pie spice? Maybe they meant 2 teaspoons? The ingredients call for 3 tablespoons of sugar, but the instructions say to use 2 tablespoons of sugar.

    I just made it and of course I did not put it in coffee yet. But 2 Tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice was overpowering. Could it be teaspoons. It looked nothing like your picture. Way darker. I did not use as much sugar but that should not of many any color difference and I used Wilton’s vanilla which is clear so no color change there? Please advise.
