Pumpkin spice and everything nice – that’s what Octobers are made of! Whether you’re sick of Starbucks or just wanting/needing a more affordable, sustainable option for everyday sippin’…I feel ya.
Here are the two SUPER SIMPLE ways I whip up an easy pumpkin spice latte at home.
This first homemade pumpkin spice latte is doable regardless of your coffee machine preference. The only “tool” you’ll need is this little handheld milk frother from Amazon – an easy $7 Prime purchase that also makes a great stocking stuffer for the coffee lover. 😉
A personal favorite combination is:
- Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice coffee – we have the K-Cups since we use a Keurig machine, but I believe you can get the grounds, too!
- Coffeemate’s Natural Bliss Pumpkin Spice cream
First, pour your preferred amount of creamer into your mug. Using your little handheld mixer, froth the cream until it’s nice and frothy and bubbly!
Then, just brew the coffee over the cream – that’s it. ABSURDLY simple, easy, and fast.
This second variation is just as simple – with a few tweaks in case you’ve got the same Keurig machine as me. 😉 My machine has a built-in milk frother for lattes and cappucinos specifically, so it can make for a nice alternative to your favorite coffeeshop order.
- Good & Gather Pumpkin Spice coffee grounds – this is just Target’s own in-house brand! It’s a naturally flavored light roast with hints of cinnamon, clover, nutmeg, ginger, and a hint of pumpkin – and it’s YUMMY.
- Skinny Syrups in Pumpkin Spice
- Your choice milk
First thing’s first: froth the milk using the built-in machine. It’s set on an automatic timer, so you can just hit the button and let it go! Next up, we use these reusable K-Cup pods for loose grounds; just add your pumpkin spice grounds to the cup and brew! I don’t always add syrup after that since I don’t like things being TOO sweet, but if you’ve got a sweet tooth for your coffee drinks especially, try the Skinny Syrups and just add a teaspoon or two for that extra-pumpkin-y flavor. 🙂
This nearly felt too simple to publish, so I hope it’s helpful for stocking up on a few new favorites – ha! And if you’re like me and currently stocking up on fun fall coffee mugs…same girl, same. 😉
