Here’s another goodie I found on Pinterest: Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte!
I was so excited when I found this! I usually don’t hit up Starbucks too often but in the past week I’ve been 3 times, each time for the pumpkin spice latte. But those precious seasonal gems are not cheap coming in at around $3.75 for a tall (that’s small in S-bizzle lingo). Almost 4 dollars for a drink! It’s almost like drinking Kombucha everyday (just giving my kombucha lovers crap).
Anyway, I love the pumpkin latte, but it definitely is a treat. By “treat” I mean drinking it every day could pack on a couple pounds while simultaneously slimming down the wallet . Two things I don’t want in my life. I love the Starbucks Peppermint Mochas too…but I’ll save those for Christmas time.
This recipe is so easy and (I’m assuming) much healthier for you than the Starbucks version.

Recipe found on Love Veggies and Yoga.
Next, I brewed some coffee in my Keurig. The original recipe suggests using strong coffee, so the stronger the better! I used decaf because it was the middle of the afternoon but I had the leftovers this morning with normal coffee and it was great!
Before pouring the pumpkin mixture into my coffee, I warmed half of it up (so use half of the amount for 1 cup of coffee) in the microwave.
Finally, I just poured the pumpkin in with the coffee! So easy!
You can top it off with whipped cream too for a real treat! I, unfortunately, didn’t have any so I just sprinkled the top with cinnamon.
These turned out really good! It had the perfect amount of spiciness and was a great, cozy drink especially since it’s been cold and rainy here.
What’s your favorite holiday drink? Hot chocolate, Egg Nog, etc.?
Obviously I love the pumpkin, but I think peppermint mocha takes the cake for me. It’s amazing!
