Pumpkin spice lattes come around every year leaving everyone excited. ¨Pumpkin spice lattes are my favorite part about fall,¨ says sophomore Sarah Denver. With just 1 cup of milk, 1 tablespoon of white sugar, 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree, 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract and ¼ cup brewed espresso you can make your own pumpkin spice latte right at home.
Whisk 1/2 cup milk, sugar, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over low heat. Let simmer for about five minutes. After that, whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup milk. To remove the pulp from the milk mixture, pour it into a mesh sieve. Then return the milk mixture to the saucepan and let it simmer. Continue whisking for 2 minutes. Then add espresso and whisk until foamy.
