Summer is officially over, and you know what that means…. PUMPKIN SPICE SEASON! Everyone knows about the popular Pumpkin Spice Latte but as the years go by, the world only discovers more creative ways to infuse the flavor of fall into a variety of tasty treats. From the classic latte to flavored cereal treats, here are our favorite pumpkin spiced recipes you can make at home this fall.
Nothing beats a good Pumpkin Spice Latte aka the PSL. For all your pumpkin spice lovers, it’s probably the treat that started your addiction. While it’s hard to recreate the classic Starbucks drink, you can come pretty close by making your own Pumpkin Spice Coffee aka PSC. Almost every creamer brand has released this seasonal flavor, pair with some pumpkin spice coffee beans and you’ve got the perfect PSC for a fraction of the cost of a traditional PSL.
And, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can make your own homemade pumpkin spice coffee creamer! Here’s how:
1 ½ cups of heavy cream 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
2 T of Pumpkin Puree 2 cinnamon sticks
2 T of maple syrup
In a saucepan over medium heat whisk together heavy cream, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice. Add Cinnamon sticks and increase heat to medium-high. Let mixture boil for 1 min, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 min before serving. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to one week. Shake well before use.
