Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Last week, we took the kids to our favorite pumpkin patch. The day was classic autumn with crisp cool air and the leaves on the trees fluttering like little golden flags against a blue Montana sky. Our kids had the time of their lives feeding the goats, running through the corn maze and picking pumpkins. It was the best kind of day to usher in autumn…Just like a pumpkin spice latte is the best kind of drink to do the same! What is it about pumpkin spice that says, “cozy” and “fall”?

Here’s a recipe for my favorite late-October pick-me-up.

Ingredients:
1 cup of milk
1 tablespoon pumpkin spice syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla simple syrup
2 shots of espresso or 1 cup of coffee

To garnish:
Whipped cream
Pumpkin spice mix: equal parts cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and ground clove

Earlywood Ingredients
1 toddler spoon
1 coffee scoop

Directions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, warm the milk. When it’s hot, but before it’s boiling, whisk in the two syrups.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk the milk vigorously until it is foamy, about 30 seconds.
  3. Pour the milk mixture into the espresso or coffee.
  4. Top with whipped cream and a generous pinch of pumpkin spice seasoning.

Enjoy!
