…are one of our absolute favorite things about Fall!!!  The day the pumpkin spice latte becomes available on the Starbucks menu is a happy day indeed.  This year, we decided to attempt to recreate this fall favorite at home, and these lattes are excellent!

For Schatzi’s pumpkin spice lattes you need:

  • 2 tbsp. pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp. vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. pumpkin spice
  • 2 shots freshly brewed espresso
  • 1 cup milk

Combine the vanilla, sugar, pumpkin spice, and pumpkin.

Make your espresso as usual and froth the milk. Before the milk reaches 160 degrees, add the pumpkin mixture and stir well.  Bring the mixture to 160 degrees.

Add the milk mixture to the espresso and top with a dash of cinnamon.

Well done, Schatzi!  Who needs Starbucks when you are practically married to a do-it-yourself baristo?!
