Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte
Don’t you just love fall? The aromas, flavors and colors are just so comforting. I look forward every year when Starbucks launches their yummy Pumpkin Spice Latte. But the thought of paying $3.50 for a small cup makes me cringe. So here’s a homemade Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe you can make a home without breaking the bank.
I am a huge coffee lover. My daughter says that that coffee is the cure for grown up grumpiness. Guess she knows me too well. I am keen on sweet flavors such as pumpkin and hazelnut. This latte is comforting, delicious and oh so sweet.
Whether it’s a rainy day or a cold morning, you can trust this Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte will keep you warm from the inside. Now that I know the secret to this recipe, I don’t have to wait for fall to drink it.
It’s been raining really hard lately in Miami. Last night we were awoken by strong thunder and lightning. It was such a hot summer and now fall is bringing us wet weather. I just hope we get some nice breeze soon so my kids can enjoy the playground and ride their bikes throughout the neighborhood.
In the mean time, I’ll be sipping my yummy Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte while watching the rain fall. Delicious, cheaper and faster than waiting for my favorite barista to brew mine. Gotta love pumpkin and cinnamon.
