You knew this one was coming, didn’t you? I mean, I’m pretty sure, that many moons ago, this is where the pumpkin craze began. So, I guess at this moment, I would like to give a shout out to Starbucks! Funny thing is, in my Starbucks hay day, I NEVER even ordered a Pumpkin Spice Latte. I was always more of a plain latte type of girl. (Except of course during red cup season…peppermint mochas…but that, of course, is a different season and a different blog post!) The only place I have ever even had a PSL was at home. Made by yours truly.
So here you have it, Pumpkin Spice Latte’s ala Karen.
Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte
1 c. almond milk (homemade will really knock this out of the ballpark…recipe here)
3/4 coffee concentrate (I always have cold pressed coffee in the fridge…recipe here)
2 T. pumpkin puree
spices to taste: I used cinnamon (3 shakes), nutmeg (1 shake), and ginger (1 quick shake).
Warm milk and coffee if needed. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend away until the dates are not visible. You will have a nice frothy topping without the use of any type of whip!
