No...I'm not at Starbucks but..

I'm at home.

Drinking a Pumpkin Spice Latte...that I made.

I know you are probably getting tired of my obsession 
with Pumpkin Spice Latte's & creamers.

But I feel like I have found Gold at the
End of a Rainbow & I must share.

My friend Amanda gave me this link for
Homemade Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes
I wasted no time preparing one for you.
Because we all know we can't go to Starbucks 
On a regular basis for $4 each & that's for a Tall!

  Prairie Cottage Rose is the blog that discovered this yumminess! 
I will probably add more pumpkin to mine next time. 
And I added 3 packages of Truvia to mine instead of sugar.

Just Like Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte
Makes 1-2 servings
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute – adjust to taste
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee (or 1/4 cup of espresso if you have an espresso machine)
In a saucepan stir together milk, pumpkin and sugar. 
Cook and stir over medium heat until steaming. 
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and pumpkin pie spice,
 transfer to a blender and process for 15 seconds or until foamy.
 I don’t usually bother with the blender and 
just whip the mixture really well with a wire whisk.
Pour into a large mug or two mugs if you decide to share.
 Add the coffee or espresso on top.

And my Good friend Loren Just sent me this..
I love Charles...I think I'm pretty much his BFF.
Pause my playlist at the bottom...

Notice the Starbucks napkin pasted to his apron...I think I'll make myself one.
