Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Pumpkin spice latte season already? But I must admit I make these all year. Don’t judge me, it’s one of my many flaws.  

If you haven’t already learned to make these at home you should give this a try.  This recipe is the closest I’ve come to tasting like Starbuck’s. Plus I’m going to share a tip with you on storage and usage.

How To Store Your Pumpkin Spice Latte Mix

And now for the tip…I store mine in a mason jar.  I found a tip on Pinterest (morewithlesstoday) to use the pour spout off of a juice carton or other container with the same spout.

lid cut off of juice box

Open the juice container and cut out around the spout leaving enough room to trace and trim to fit your jar lid.

Trace the lid onto the container and cut out. Pop it into the jar ring and Ta-Da!

It works great! You can do this for just about anything you pour out of a jar.

Ok, back to the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Pull 2 shots of espresso.  Sometimes more if you are me. It depends on the comfort cup choice of the moment.  

Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of the pumpkin spice syrup, steam the milk, combine and enjoy!

Our Eggnog Latte is to-die-for!

    I think I’m the only person in the world who hasn’t tried a Pumpkin Spiced Latte. I’m a creature of habit and stick to just my skinny vanilla latte. I think I’m eventually going to have to give in and give it a go.

    Thanks for sharing on the #FFBH <3
