Fall is being celebrated in most of the country, and some cooler temps - high 70s!! - even reached Florida. When it dips below 80 degrees, everyone flocks to the coffee shop for their Fall favorite drink, the pumpkin spiced latte. 

While I love coffee shops, I don't love the price tag that comes with the quintessential pumpkin drink. So instead of waiting in the drive-thru on your way to work, I created an easy, copycat pumpkin spiced latte that you can make at home!

This copycat pumpkin spiced latte uses real pumpkin too! A pumpkin syrup is mixed with steamed milk and espresso, just like your coffee shop favorite. I love when the weather cools down enough to have a warm beverages like hot chocolate and apple cider

My pumpkin spice sauce used in the copycat pumpkin spiced latte can easily be doubled or tripled, depending on how many lattes you want for the week. You can whip up a batch and have it ready in the refrigerator, so minimal prep is needed in the mornings or for an afternoon pick-me-up.

I also learned a neat trick when creating my pumpkin spiced latte. I don't have a fancy coffee-make or wand that whips up the steamed milk, but I do have a high-powered blender! Of course, as with all hot liquids, be careful and make sure the lid is on tight. 

My blender whipped the hot milk to frothy perfection and gave me a beautiful foam for the top of the latte. I cannot wait to create more foamy lattes! I hope you enjoy this easy coffeehouse copycat recipe as much as I do.

Until next time,
