If you want to learn how to make the easiest and BEST pumpkin spice latte from the convenience of your own home, save lots of money during the fall months, and skip crazy lines at the coffee shop, then grab your favorite blanket and fuzzy socks, and scroll down for Beantween’s Delicious DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe.
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 5 minutes Total Time: 10 minutes
What You’ll Need:
-1 cup milk of your choice
-2 tablespoons organic pumpkin puree
-1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
-1-2 tsp sugar (optional)
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice + a sprinkle or so more for the top
-½ cup hot Beantween Coffee or 1-2 shots of Beantween Espresso
-Whipped cream (optional)
Start by heating your milk until warm. You can do this in a saucepan on the stove or by using a milk warmer, whichever you prefer. Continually check the temperature of the milk and be careful not to let it boil.
Once the milk is to the temperature of your liking, you can either pour it into a medium-sized, clear measuring glass or leave it in the pot. You will be adding all of the remaining ingredients to this and frothing it in just a bit.
Next, brew your Beantween coffee. While this recipe calls for a ½ cup of Beantween coffee, you can make adjustments for the specific amount you’d like! The wonderful thing about making pumpkin spice latte’s at home is that YOU get to be in control of how sweet, pumpkin-y, and/or strong the drink is.
Now it’s time to return to the milk. Add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and sugar to the measuring cup.
Use a milk frother or a whisk to mix everything together. You’ll know it’s ready when there are no longer any clumps of pumpkin puree visible in the milk. When everything has sufficiently been combined, pour it into a mug of your choice.
Once the Beantween coffee is ready, stir it into your milk.
Finally, top the drink with some whipped cream and more pumpkin pie spice and enjoy!
We sincerely hope that our DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe allows you to craft your very own fall-in-a-cup that makes your heart flutter, whether that be sitting alongside festive orange lights or at your desk and in need of a quick pumpkin pick-me-up.
