When Fall season arrives I crave Pumpkin Spice Lattes. They are one of my favorite treats. However I do not like the hefty price tag to get one at a coffee shop. So I decided to do some researching and tried many recipes. I now have what I think is the PERFECT Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe that I can make at home for cheaper than the coffee shop! It gives Starbucks a run for their money. I think I really came up with a delicious copycat version of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte but for a fraction of the price. Best off all this recipe is naturally gluten free too!
Easy Pumpkin Spice Latte is so simple and you can make just one serving or two if you feel like sharing 🙂 You can top this with store bought or Homemade Whipped Cream. I love making this recipe with my own homemade pumpkin puree and Pumpkin Pie Spice. This is the perfect treat to celebrate fall! If you like pumpkin everything then you are going to fall in love with this easy recipe for homemade pumpkin spice lattes! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
