Create the fall favorite drink in your own kitchen

The Pumpkin Spice Latte is the must-have drink that everyone lines up for at Starbucks at the start of October. Unfortunately, the drink isn’t on the menu all year, but it can be in your kitchen! Here is a quick, inexpensive and easy way to bring this fall-favorite drink into your home.

1/2 cup of coffee
1/8 of a tsp of vanilla extract
1/8 of a tsp of pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp of sugar
1 cup of heated milk
whipped cream


First start by pouring a half cup of coffee into a mug.

Next, pour the vanilla extract into the coffee.

Then, dump the pumpkin pie spice into the coffee.

Next, pour the sugar into the coffee.


Stir all the ingredients in your coffee with a spoon


Now heat the milk. For best results, heat it over the stove in a saucepan, but a microwave works just fine, too.

Finally, pour the heated milk into the coffee and stir it all together.

To garnish the latte, dollop some whipped cream on the top of your coffee.

For even more of a customized touch, sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice over the top of the whipped cream.

Enjoy your pumpkin spice latte!
