Pumpkin Spice Lattes are Better Homemade

Saturday, November 17, 2012

As previously stated in this post, the best part about fall is pumpkin everything. Pumpkin pies are undoubtedly the best, but I’m also a sucker for the portability and deliciousness of a pumpkin spice latte. On of my favorite blogs, A Little Loveliness posted a recipe for a homemade pumpkin spice latte so I was overly excited to try it out. Even Danny liked it, so I thought I’d share my version of the recipe.

My lactose intolerance means most things need to be made with soy milk. We use light soy milk in our house, which seems sweeter than milk to me, so I added less sugar. I also tend not to drink caffeine so we used decaffeinated coffee, but that’s an easy modification for my caffeine-drinking friends.

This recipe makes one-ish very large, very yummy pumpkin spice latte.

1.5 cups light soy milk

2 Tablespoons sugar

3/8 teaspoon vanilla

1/8 teaspoon pumpkin spice

4 oz double-strength brewed decaffeinated coffee

whipped cream (if you can handle dairy)

caramel syrup

pinch of pumpkin spice

Heat soy milk in a heavy saucepan until milk is hot and bubbling slightly. Combine hot milk, sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin spice in a blender and blend on high until mixture is frothy. Pour milk mixture into a large mug about 3/4 of the way full, fill up rest of mug with brewed coffee. Top with whipped cream, caramel syrup, and a pinch of pumpkin spice. Yum!

  1. Thanks Ruth! I sent this on to Sarah because she and Chad love drinks like this. The three of us went to The Green for the tree lighting and mini parade. They always go and it is a decent evening. They said they never ran into such a traffic jam before. So many people it was like OSU football game traffic. Had to park by K-Mart and walk!!! Then we ate at The Pub. Nice time. Had to miss the second half of the OSU/ Wisconsin game though but Chad kept me updated. Of course it ran overtime because of 14-14 tie but OSU ended up winning 21-14. Of all the games to miss. Sorry for the long drawn out saga! Hope all is well in Pittsburg. Love, Lolo
