Pumpkin Spice Latte

I found this recipe for a Starbuck's copycat 
pumpkin spice latte on pintrest.
Since the closest Starbucks is over 100 miles away, I had to try it.
And of course, it was delicious!  Eric said it tasted just like Starbucks' :)
I've already made this 5 or 6 times. It's quick and a nice treat to get the morning started.

 I used the pie mix because our grocery store was out of the pumpkin puree. Gotta love small town grocery stores!
 I didn't use whipped cream on mine, but I think it would make it that much more delicious!
I'll try it next time

Pumpkin Spice Latte (Starbuck’s Copycat)
2 cups half and half, whole milk reduced fat or skim milk
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree
1 – 2 tablespoons sugar, stevia or splenda
2 tablespoons vanilla extract, yes tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1-4 shots espresso or very strong coffee (I double the amount of grounds I use per cup to get my strong coffee)

1. Brew your espresso or strong coffee. If brewing strong coffee, use double the amount of grounds you would in your regular coffee.
2. Combine half and half or milk, pumpkin, sugar, and pumpkin pie spices in a small saucepan. Heat until very hot, but do not boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Transfer to a blender or a milk frother and blend until frothy.
3. Pour 1 cup warm pumpkin milk mixture into coffee mug and add 1-4 coffee shots. Dust with more pumpkin pie spice if desired.
Makes about 1 – 2 servings.
