Pumpkin Spiced Latte at Home!
As many of you know, we are now in the season of Basic Bitches. Yup, that's right.. Fall has been renamed. From this point on Fall is now Basic Bitch Season. There's really no way you can enter Fall without thinking about Pumpkin Spiced (everything) Lattes. Whether you like them or not.. they're a part of our lives and like a weird step brother, we just gotta put up with them. If you're anything like me, (cheap) you don't want to spend 5 bucks on a latte from Starbucks. So I searched the wonderful world wide web for a recipe to try and make my own! Luckily, my prayers have been answered.. and what kind of person would I be if I didn't share with my fellow Basic Bitches?
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 cups of milk
- 3 tablespoons of pumpkin puree
- 2 1/2-3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 - 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- strong coffee or espresso
All you have to do is mix everything besides the coffee in a small sauce pan and let that heat up. I realize that everyone likes their drinks a specific way, some like it more sweet, some more bitter, so make sure you're tasting it and adjusting it to your liking. Once the ingredients are all mixed together and hot enough, transfer some of it into a mug and add 2 shots of strong coffee/espresso. If you're using coffee.. you may be tempted to add more cause it's such a little amount but trust me, try it first.
I highly recommend fancying this up with some whipped cream and caramel drizzle because uhhhh… why not!? It's so good and it's the perfect way to start off your Basic Bitch morning! I hope you guys enjoy! Until next time..
