A super smooth and creamy pumpkin spice latte that takes no time to make, but will satisfy your fall spice cravings and will warm you up on a chilly day.
The other day I walked past starbucks and saw all their fall season drinks up, so I guess pumpkin season has started. I had some pumpkin puree left over from making pumpkin pie that I wanted to use up, and so this psl recipe was born. I added a lot of sugar in mine because I like sweet drinks and also because I was a little scarred by a latte I had yesterday that was super bitter. You can add less sugar than I did or even more sugar if that’s what you’re into.
I used canned pumpkin puree, but you can make your own. I don’t make my own because it takes too long and I wasn’t ready to go that far for a cup of psl. If you want to cut down on more prep time, you can just microwave the milk mixture instead of doing it on the stove top. Just make sure to watch it carefully, because it will boil over and you’ll have a mess that you don’t want to clean up. Once it’s heated, froth it up and serve just as the instructions say.
- 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup brewed coffee
- whipping cream and cinnamon for topping
- In a saucepan over medium heat, add in the pumpkin puree, sugar, spice, vanilla extract, and milk, and heat it until just until it boils. While this mixture is heating up, whisk it figurously to make it foamy.
- Pour the coffee into your serving cups, then pour in the pumpkin milk mixture. Top off the entire drink with a dollop of whipped cream and some cinnamon powder.
