Pumpkin Latte Starbucks Copycat Recipe

Yes, I am one of those people who go wild with pumpkin-flavored everything in the fall. I love the sweet flavor of pumpkin in pies, cakes, and yes, even my drinks. Fall is by far my favorite season because the temperatures are generally perfect here in Virginia (60s and 70s), the leaves are beautiful, and of course, the pumpkins!

In fact, my husband and I were married in the fall in 2008. It was October, and there was a slight chill to the air. The trees were blazing red and orange, and everything had a crispness to it. It was an outdoor ceremony, and it was magical. At least, it was to me. Looking back, my bridesmaids must have been freezing.

Making this copycat recipe is easier than you think. You don’t need an espresso machine or any fancy coffee maker at all. A saucepan and the ingredients are all you need for this yummy, creamy, warm-you-all-over drink.

Our pumpkin pie smoothie is another yummy drink for autumn!
