The leaves are changing colours, the pumpkin spice lattes are being advertised, the dollar store has halloween items on display which can only mean… FALL IS BACK, PEOPLE! 

To celebrate, Chef Sarah is finally back on the blog and is becoming Barista Sarah for a second! 

What is more fall than….PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES! Yes, it’s fun to be basic sometimes and with this recipe, it can be cheaper than buying in store. What’s more, only 7 ingredients are required for 1 mug serving.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp Pumpkin or homemade pumpkin puree, canned
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla almond milk, unsweetened, or whatever milk you like
  • 2 tsp Maple syrup 
  • 1 sprinkle Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 8 oz Coffee → coffee has a huge environmental and social impact, look for fair trade logos to do your part!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Start to prepare coffee (espresso shot worth) in whatever coffee maker you have
  2. In a saucepan heat the plant based milk and pumpkin puree to a medium heat until steam appears. Continue by adding the spices and condiments. BE CAREFUL TO NOT LET MILK BOIL.
  3. Add coffee to the saucepan and stir for around 1 minute.
  4. Pour into mug and ENJOY 🍂

If you like it more sweet, add more syrup or brown sugar. Maybe a little whip cream to fancy it up!

*FROTHED VERSION*:

If you have a frother, put the milk mixture (PRE COFFEE) in a cup and froth her up, then add to the coffee!

Pro tip: make a bigger batch  of the milk mixture and keep it in the fridge for the following mornings. Just heat it up and add coffee in the mornings!
