I apologize for my recent obsession with pumpkin spice lattes. Whether they be frozen, quick, or vegan…I’m all over them. And this weekend, my husband and I were ready to cozy up on the couch and relax during Liam’s nap. This was the only thing that we needed to make it perfect.

After frantically searching the internet for a recipe, I came across Heather’s latteย and knew I needed to make one for us.ย You know, you work quickly when your child only takes one nap every day and a short one at that!

It’s the little things.

  1. This recipe is such a godsend! I’ve been reading about pumpkin spice lattes all over the blogosphere over the past few months and they don’t exist over here in Australia. Now I can sort of make my own… but what’s in pumpkin spice?! There’s no such spice mix over here. I can’t wait to experience this divine sounding drink! Thanks! xx

  2. I can’t wait to make this, especially now that the Starbux PSL ingredients have been revealed (and how terrible they are)! I’m wondering if you could make this in bulk and freeze the portions and just pop a cube in hot coffee? Have you tried that? Thanks for sharing!!

    1. I haven’t tried that, but what a great idea! ๐Ÿ˜€ I was so bummed to learn about the PSL ingredients, too. I guess homemade is always better anyway!
