Pumpkin spice everything is hitting the shelves, the drive thrus, and now it can hit your kitchen with ONE extra step to your regular coffee routine in the morning!
I've seen a lot of pumpkin spice latte recipes floating around on blogs and on YouTube but let's be honest...ain't no mommy got time for that. They require multiple perishable ingredients and multiple steps to achieve the end result. Umm no thank you.
Even before I was a mom I was using this method when fall rolled around each year because I was either rushing to school or work in the morning.
(This is before I convinced my boss to get an office Keurig but I digress. Former coworkers, you can thank me later...) ;)
All you need is a $3.00 spice you probably already have in your cabinet.
1. Pumpkin pie spice
1. Add 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to your regularly prepared coffee and mix well. (Feel free to add more if you are a real pumpkin freak. ;) )
Okay, okay so there are a few ways you could mess this up. Like, obviously if you regularly use peppermint creamer you don't want to throw pumpkin pie spice in that. But if you make your coffee with "original" creamer or even French vanilla (just something with a tame taste) you will be fine to add the pumpkin pie spice and it still taste like pumpkin! You can even use a tamely flavored coffee! Just be smart about it. Again, no peppermint. Ick.
I'll tell you exactly how I make mine and suggest a healthier sugar substitute.
I brew a cup of Eight O'Clock 100% Colombian Peak coffee. I then use 1 tablespoon of Organic Coconut Palm Sugar. It is an amazing sugar alternative and tastes the same in coffee as sugar does! (And you can use it as a brown sugar substitute in baking or on top of your oatmeal!). It is made from dried coconut palm nectar. It is certified organic, non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free.
Anyway, I then add (way too much) liquid french vanilla creamer.
And then I add my 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.
Alrighty well that about does it! I hope you all try this easy recipe and please let me know if you do!
Have a wonderful day!
