Four Mondays Of : D R I N K S : P U M P K I N . S P I C E . L A T T E.

Happy Monday, my friends. Today I wanted to start a new little Four Mondays Of series. DRINKS. I don't know about you guys, but I am a fan of anything coffee and tea or hot chocolate related. Especially when the weather gets a bit cooler, it is so nice to have something warm in hand while taking a walk down a leaf covered path! OOH. I am such a fan of this tradition that my local Tim Horton's knows who I am. Yep.

Since I am not made of money, sadly ... and I decided that I should find recipes (or write my own) so that I can treat myself to something wonderful at home. This is the first recipe that I have tried and loved.
Now, before we begin, I must say that this is not a very sweet Pumpkin Spice Latte. Of course, you can always make it sweeter by adding more sugar or syrup, but the way I designed this recipe was to be more on the coffee/spice side of things. Make sure to taste as you go so that you don't end up with something too sugary. 

1 1/2 cup of Coffee (you can use espresso, coffee made from pot or french press - I used french press)
1 Cup of Hot Milk (steamed or microwaved - I steamed)
Pumpkin Pie spice
Vanilla Syrup (I used Starbucks Sugar Free - you can also use 1tsp of sugar + vanilla extract) 
Whipped Cream. optional

Poor the hot milk into a cup until it is half full! Add the spice and vanilla syrup. Stir until it is as blended as it will get. Add coffee until the cup is full! Add whipped cream if desired and enjoy tasting every single sip! 
Thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed! Do let me know if you have tried and liked this recipe, that would be so much fun to hear. Thanks again, and I hope you all have an amazing day. xo
