The Very Best DIY Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte #FallFlavors

I was given product from both sponsors for use in my creations. 
All opinions about the products are my own.

Welcome to Flavors of Fall where we celebrate all things associated with fall like squash, apples, pecans, sweaters, football; you get the idea!  Ellen from Family Around the Table and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures have gathered 24 bloggers who have over 100 recipes they’re sharing this week in celebration of cool weather and sweatshirts.  We hope you find many must make recipes so get your pinning, tweeting, and sharing fingers ready!

I am sure you are asking, "what makes this the VERY BEST DIY Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte? There are many reasons that I want to share with you!

  • We use the best Pumpkin Spice Coffee on the market: Door County Coffee and Tea Co.
  • We use homemade pumpkin puree.
  • We use top-notch vanilla (Right now I am loving Taylor & Colledge Vanilla Paste.)
  • We steam the milk in our espresso machine.
All of this adds up to a delicious pumpkin spice latte that you know has top-quality ingredients in it. I double the recipe (just the milk combination,) make a cup of pumpkin spice using their single-serve cups, heat up a portion of the milk combination, and combine them. It makes the most delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte in a short amount of time.

When Fall comes around, it is imperative that I have a Pumpkin Spice Latte, but I do not want 60g of sugar in my drink, or artificial flavorings. I bet you don't either!  Try this one, and don't be afraid to roast your own pumpkin.  It is simple, so simple you will wonder why you hadn't done this before!
