Pumpkin Spice Latte

While I’m not much of a coffee drinker (like as in I can’t remember the last time I have had one but if I had to guess we could probably use the words “decade plus” and come up with a fairly accurate figure), my husband is. Typically, he likes it strong and black, but he if he is going to bother to deviate from that, he likes a specialty coffee.

Now that we live from nice and inconveniently far from the nearest Starbuck’s, my budget can breathe a sigh of relief, but I don’t want to deprive him entirely so that every time he goes to town he’s tempted.

That’s why I was excited to try this recipe when I saw it. It seemed very simple and straightforward and frugal since I can use ingredients that I have on hand.

I even tried some.

I’ll try anything with pumpkin in it at least once…

So now we have it. Right here in black and white. I drank coffee in September of 2013.

And in this particular case, it was so flavorful, I could easily see myself occasionally indulging in it again!

  1. I love lattes. I'll DEFINITELY be making this, and I already have all the ingredients, except for the bovine coconut milk. Where can I find that? It sounds delicious. 😉
