Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall is just around the corner and I'm so excited! I love all the holiday coffee drinks and I usually try to make them at home to save money. I found this recipe on the Motherload Blog. After making it this morning, I thought it was really good, but it was a little too strong for my taste. I will make it with less coffee next time.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

2 cups milk
1 cup very strong coffee (4 tablespoons coffee grounds to 1 cup of hot water)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2-4 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon (plus extra for dusting)
2 heaping spoonfuls of pumpkin

Pour all the ingredients into a pot and heat over medium-high heat until the coffee is steaming hot. Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream & cinnamon.

Serving Size: 2

Enjoy! :)
