Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte copycat


What you need:
  • 3 tbsp. canned pumpkin
  • 2 tbsp. vanilla-flavored syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 (3 oz.) espresso (1 to 2 shots)
In a small saucepan, stir pumpkin puree into milk. Add vanilla syrup and pumpkin pie spice.

Heat gently; continuing to stir occasionally, just until steamy and foam begins to appear.

Pour  pumpkin flavored milk into a tall mug...

..and pour espresso over top.
**Top with whip cream and a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Note: if you like it slightly sweeter, add a bit of vanilla flavored coffee creamer.
