Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte... ish

Making my own pumpkin spice latte has been on my mind. A lot.  I love them, but can't afford them. And I wanted to find a way to make them with natural, unharmful ingredients, anyway.  Making pumpkin bread with the pancake squash last night sparked an idea. What if I put the spices I use in pumpkin bread into my coffee?  So this morning, I pinched and sprinkled some cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves, allspice, and nutmeg, added about a teaspoon of maple syrup (The real kind, people. It has to be the real kind.) annnd... a couple teaspoons of cream(mmm).  It was tasty-licious!   But it was missing the pumpkin taste.  Go figure.  Next time, after I process the pumpkins in the garden, I'll whisk about 1 teaspoon of the purée in there and let you know how it turns out. ;)


  1. Next time, if you need a guinea pig/quality control person, I'm your gal.

  2. mmm, i would like to try this out. how did it turn out?

  3. Definitely add the pumpkin puree. I've done it before and its' pretty fabulous. You can whisk it in a sauce pan with your milk of choice, pumpkin puree, spices, and maple syrup. Then add your coffee. It's fabulous. I'll try and post a recipe in the next few days. :)


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
