Answer
Here's a detailed recipe for a homemade pumpkin spice latte, inspired by various sources:

Ingredients

  • 2 shots of espresso or 1/2 cup of strongly brewed coffee
  • 1 cup of your preferred milk (oat milk, almond milk, or regular milk are all good options)
  • 3 tablespoons of pumpkin puree
  • 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream for topping (optional)

Instructions

  1. Pour your milk into a small pot and heat it over medium-low heat until it's hot but not boiling.
  2. While the milk is heating, make your espresso or coffee.
  3. Once the milk is heated, remove it from the heat. Add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract to the pot.
  4. Whisk the mixture until it's well combined.
  5. Pour your espresso or coffee into a large mug. Then, pour the milk mixture into the mug, stirring to combine.
  6. If you'd like, top your latte with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

Tips

  • If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can make your own by combining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1/8 teaspoon of ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves or allspice.
  • If you prefer a stronger pumpkin flavor, you can simmer the pumpkin puree in a saucepan until it has reduced by 1/3 before adding it to the milk mixture.
  • If you want to make an iced version of this latte, simply blend all the ingredients together and pour over ice.
  • This homemade pumpkin spice latte can be stored in the fridge for up to two days. To reheat, simply blend and reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave until warm.
