Ok – did you read the title and think, ‘I can’t make a Pumpkin Spice Latte at home because I don’t have a fancy coffee machine.” Then I will say to you “You’re wrong!”. You can most definitely make one at home and it’s going to be EASY and taste amazing.
You might also be thinking, “Why wouldn’t I just go buy one from the coffee shop?” and my answer to that is “Go for it.” If you want to go to the coffee shop and buy them then that’s probably the best bet for you! But either way, I’m going to tell you why I love making them from home, and maybe I can convince you to try it too!
3 Reasons why I LOVE this recipe:
#1) It’s my favourite special fall/winter drink.
I actually never buy “fancy” coffee. We rarely go out and buy coffee because Mark and I LOVE making really great coffee from home. When we go out for coffee, it’s usually for a special little family date and we most often just get black coffee or Americano’s anyway. I love being able to make them from home because it’s where I drink the majority of my coffee.
#2) They don’t make me feel gross.
I ALWAYS buy one Pumpkin Spice Latte every single year because I LOVE FALL and as soon at it gets cooler out I always want to go and get one and feel the fall warmth take over and enjoy the wonderful taste that a Pumpkin Spice Latte brings into my life. Until about halfway through the latte….. and I remember why I only buy one a year. I don’t know if it’s because I am sensitive to the added colours and artificial flavours they add to it or what, but usually when I get half way through the latte I feel sick to my stomach and can’t finish it. But – something about it is still enjoyable?! So I created a recipe that I could make from home and feel really great about drinking it, and it doesn’t make me feel icky!
#3) It is WAY CHEAPER. Like…. way cheaper.
This is the obvious reason why I love making them from home. Even if you don’t care about the reasons I listed above, this recipe is still worth trying! It’s such a great treat for me and I love making it for friends and family when they come over. I always go a tad overboard each year by making maybe a few too many lattes in a row because this recipe just makes it so easy to enjoy!
