Since its introduction in 2004, the Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte has become something of an international phenomenon. It’s the coffee chain’s most popular seasonal beverage of all time with hordes of PSL fanatics eagerly awaiting its Fall season debut.
Now you can make the iconic drink at home with this easy recipe. I was a bit skeptical as to how a Pumpkin Spice Latte would taste without the espresso machine and mermaid on the cup, but this home-brewed version was really good. Plenty of pumpkin pie flavor with just enough espresso to classify as a proper coffee drink.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
2 cups milk
2 1/2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
3 tablespoons sugar (I used 1 tablespoon since I prefer a less sweet drink)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup hot espresso or strong brewed coffee
Whipped cream, to serve
1. Combine the milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, spices and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Heat until the milk is hot. Whisk vigorously until the milk mixture is foamy, about 30 seconds.
2. Divide the espresso between 2 large mugs and add the foamed milk. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

‘Couples’ is one of those terribly sad songs that is so relatable. It joins 3 other new and fantastic songs on Captain Wilberforce’s EP, ‘The Late Captain Wilberforce’.
“So why? You have a nice life
I’m sorry there’s something missing
I can’t save you from yourself”
