Decaf Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

This Fall season Starbucks brought back the ultimate coffee lovers dream: The Pumpkin Spice Latte. With much success, the latte dominates the coffee market this season, obsessing millions, and that’s why you’re here. We both can’t get enough of this deliciously delicacy, but do you we have to go to Starbucks each time we’re craving? Certainly not!

We can make this caffeinated treat ourselves! Maybe you’d prefer a decaf pumpkin spice latte? Either way, it’s so simple to make at home, you’ll be wondering why you haven’t been doing it for years already. The kicker? Our recipe will actually use real pumpkin in it. That’s right, the beloved Starbucks Pumpkin Spice doesn’t actually contain any real pumpkin despite its name. It’s a bit misleading don’t you think, especially for the price you pay. Nothing beats the taste of a real pumpkin, and adding it to your latte will give it a full-bodied taste that you’ve never experience before.

And lastly, let’s not forget anything you make yourself will be a lot cheaper than store-bought. A one-off purchase of the latte may not be much, but if you’re a pumpkin spice addict like me, you know you’re spent hundreds by now on that delicious addiction. Don’t lie to yourself. Admitting it is part of the healing process, and so is making it yourself. Join us in the self made latte revolution and start enjoying your spice lattes with the recipe below.
