Fall Drink at Home

I always look forward to Starbucks festive drinks.  In the fall my favorite one is the pumpkin spice latte..yum! I decided to make my own at home :) Now you can too!
All you need is: 2 cups milk, coffee, 3 Tbsp pumpkin, 3 Tbsp sugar, 2 Tbsp vanilla, 3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1/4 tsp nutmeg and cinnamon for topping.   Start by brewing a small batch of coffee, for 2 drinks you will only need about a cup.  Once the coffee is brewing get started on your drink!

Add your milk, pumpkin, and sugar together and heat on medium heat until steaming.  Once mixture is steaming add vanilla, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice.  Remove from heat.

Place mixture in a blender and blend for about 20 seconds to create a frothy texture.  Pour into 2 mugs.

Top drink of with coffee.  Gently stir.
Sprinkle cinnamon on top.  If desired add whipped cream too!
I hope you enjoy this fall treat.  It's not Starbucks but it is budget friendly!
Happy Fall!
Love, T
