Pumpkin Spice Latte

One of my favorite things about fall is Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks...

But at $4 bucks a pop one can hardly afford to make them a habit...

Two a week equals $32 a month. That is the same amount of money it costs to sponsor a child so they can go to school and have adequate meals for a month. The good steward in me has a hard time justifying that.

So...I found a way to make my own Pumpkin Spice Lattes and they are quite easy!!!

Here is the recipe:

2 cups milk
2 Tbs. canned pumpkin
2 Tbs. sugar
2 Tbs. vanilla
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 cup hot brewed coffee

Cook milk, pumpkin, and sugar in saucepan on med. until steaming. Remove from heat and add vanilla and pumpkin spice. Whisk until foamy. Fill mugs halfway and top off with coffee. Add whip cream and pumpkin spice or cinnamon on top. Enjoy!

Loved the pumpkin spice Latte so much as if I actually consumed it; would I have the joy/honour of sharing it with you, not being a great cook anymore myself???
Thanx for providing the great recipe!!
