Quick Pumpkin Spice Latte

The year I got my Breville espresso machine was the year I started saving money.

It’s no coincidence either.

More lattes made at home, less money to Starbucks! Sorry Starbucks…I worked for you…I paid my time. 😉 Plus you got me addiccctteedddd!

Since it’s the autumn….nearing the Christmas season, I thought I’d treat myself to a little latte.

I didn’t add any pumpkin or any flavored syrups, just straight spices and sweetness. 🙂

What’s your favorite hot drink?

Have any good recipes for me???

Quick Pumpkin Spice Latte


  • 1 espresso shot (I did it decaf since I’m knocked up!)
  • 2 dashes of pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1 cup of milk (I used skim)


  1. Put the first dash of pumpkin spice and the agave nectar in the bottom of your coffee cup.
  2. Place your coffee cup under the espresso portion of your espresso machine.
  3. Meanwhile, froth your milk with the espresso machine.
  4. Using your espresso machine, drip your shot of espresso onto the pumpkin spice and agave nectar.
  5. Give it a quick swirl before pouring the milk in.
  6. Pour the frothed milk over the espresso.
  7. Sprinkle a dash of pumpkin spice over the foam.
  8. Drink away!

Servings: 1 latte


  1. Yum! Hope you’re feeling a bit better–maybe this nice spicy latte helped. 🙂

    If you like hot cocoas, you could try a spin on it that I love–heat up 2 cups of milk (this would make 2 servings), stir in a tablespoon (or two, if you’re feeling decadent) of Nutella and a teaspoon of cinnamon. When everything’s thoroughly heated together, pour in mugs and garnish with whipped cream! I call it “hot Nutella cocoa,” but since there’s no chocolate, I guess it’s really more of a Nutella steamer. 😉

  2. Here is what I do for a quick pumpkin coffee drink. Make a cup of strong coffee at home (I have a Keurig and love french roast), then add a plop or 2 of Trader Joe Pumpkin ice cream!

    That’s it! Fantastic!

    I love this much more than a boughten drink. I just don’t like the sweetness of the flavored syrups.
