Our recipe for homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

THE comforting autumn drink 🍂

Summer is drawing to a close, the days are getting shorter, and a light, cool breeze is beginning to blow. This can only mean one thing: autumn is upon us, and with it, one of the most iconic seasonal drinks of the year - the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

The history of an autumn tradition

The Pumpkin Spice Latte has become a symbol of the transition from summer to autumn for many people. First created by Starbucks in 2003, the drink quickly gained in popularity and is now served in cafés around the world as soon as the leaves begin to change color. It's no wonder that the Pumpkin Spice Latte has become a must-have tradition for many coffee lovers.

With a homemade recipe, it's easy to avoid the excessive sugar and expensive price tag of the big brands, and add your dose of love to your pumpkin spice latte.

Here's our homemade recipe, quite similar to the seasonal beverage, but much healthier!

Key ingredients

Pumpkin Spice Latte is a delicious blend of flavors that evoke the warmth and comfort of autumn. And it would be nothing without the key ingredients that make it such a success!

The base of this drink is, of course, espresso coffee, which provides the caffeine dose needed to help you face the shorter days.

Milk, whether whole, skimmed or vegetable, adds creaminess and sweetness to the drink.

The star of the drink, pumpkin puree, adds a rich flavor and velvety texture. It is often blended with autumnal spices to create the "pumpkin spice" blend.

The spice blend typically includes cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger, which give PSL its distinctive autumnal flavor.

And to sweeten things up, a little sugar is often added, although the amount may vary according to your preferences.

Why do we love Pumpkin Spice Latte so much?

There's something comforting about Pumpkin Spice Latte that goes beyond its delicious taste. It embodies the warmth of autumn, conjuring up images of knitted sweaters, autumn-colored walks in the woods, and evenings spent beside a roaring fire. Pumpkin Spice Latte is like a gentle embrace of the season, and there's no doubt that it brings a little happiness to our days.
