After reading this article on Food Babe, I decided to buy the ingredients for my sister ASAP as this is one of her favourite drinks of all time. I love my sister very, very much and want her to be as healthy as possible, so I really wanted to show her that she can avoid putting chemicals and unnecessary amounts of sugar in her body with this homemade version!
The only thing I needed to purchase was the Pumpkin Pie Spice, which cost just under $5 from the local grocery store. If your spice collection is all stalked up you probably already have the spices to make said Pumpkin Pie Spice mix. It contains ground cinnamon, ginger, all spice, cloves and nutmeg. Pretty much all the spices that equal the holiday season.
As I haven't drank coffee for about three years now, I was also very interested to see how this would turnout as a tea latte! I am now addicted, sooooo tasty.
Here's our take on the homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte.
3/4 cup - milk of your choice
1/4 cup - of either espresso, coffee or black tea
1/4 teaspoon - Pumpkin Pie spice
1 tablespoon - maple syrup or honey
1. Heat up milk and brew coffee/tea.
2. Combine milk, tea/coffee and Pumpkin Pie Spice in a milk frother and go to town.
3. Pour mixture into your mug and add your choice of maple syrup or honey.
4. Sprinkle a tiny bit of spice on top of the foam as garnish.
Give it a try and let me know what ya think!
