Pumpkin Spice Lattes are everywhere this time of year!

A few years ago and around this time I noticed my teens were running out of money all the time; and I knew why.

They were on the pumpkin spice lattes “kick” and were buying them weekly at Starbucks or at DD.

This is when all the popular chains are displaying beautiful photos everywhere of these luscious pumpkin spice lattes topped with whipped cream.

Gosh – how can we resist?  Right?!

Well I have to tell you, those pumpkin spice lattes are loaded in fat, sugar, artificial colors, and chemicals, and they add up to hundreds of calories.

Totally – unwanted extra calories!

That’s when I knew it was time to show my girls how to make them better tasting, healthier, and not to mention – save them money!

These Pumpkin Spice Lattes only take 5 minutes to make, and it’s a great alternative to this popular fall drink.

So I decided to make them for my girls just to prove to them that I can make them quick, easy, and at home!

BEST of all… make them low in calories, low in fat, better tasting, and healthier!

Plus, NO need for any fancy machine or cappuccino maker either.  Perfect! πŸ˜‰

How To Make These EASY PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES?

1.   Heat up some low-fat milk or your favorite non-dairy milk.

2.  Carefully pour it into a blender.

3.  Add in some pumpkin pie spice, sugar, and vanilla extract.  Then blend the milk until the milk becomes frothy.

4.  Next, pour the frothy milk into mugs, add some strong brewed coffee or a shot of espresso and top each with whipped cream and a sprinkle of ground pumpkin spice.

GREAT TIPS!

  • Using a blender is the quickest way to make your favorite lattes (and the cheapest)  making them frothy – just like they do in coffee shops.

  • You can use honey or maple syrup, which both will easily dissolve into the coffee.  And that’s the perk of making it at home, you can control the final outcome.

The Final Result?

They turned into these amazing lattes, with no artificial chemicals, no after-taste, and definitely lower in fat, sugar, and calories!  The girls loved them as much as I did.

Let’s COMPARE!

Our lattes are only 185 calories, 9.7g fat, and 16.7g carbs.

Pumpkin spice latte calories from Starbucks or DD,  with 2 percent milk and whipped cream is 380 calories, according to Starbucks’ website.  This includes 14g of fat, 52g of carbs, and 50g of sugar. 

YIKES!

Now we can enjoy sipping a pumpkin spice latte in the comfort of our own home and without running out to get them.  What could be better?

They’re quick, delicious tasting, and best of all, cost-effective!

ENJOY!

HERE’S A GREAT TIP!

Don’t have an espresso or cappuccino machine? 

Don’t worry, NO need to have one!  Just heat up the milk in a small pot on the stove.  Then carefully pour hot milk into your blender and blend at the lowest speed until it becomes frothy.  Pour into mugs and add the coffee.  It works like a charm!

  1. I had no idea you could froth milk in a blender. What a great idea! I usually am a PSL indulger, but this year, Starbucks brought out the pumpkin spice nitro cold brew, and I’ve immediately become addicted to them.

    1. Oh NO another Starbucks latte customer! Well now you can try our trick! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

  2. Love those lattes, but not the price. We just got a Starbucks in our area- I've managed to steer myself away for the most part, and this will make it even easier. Love the blender tip- I'll be trying it this weekend! πŸ™‚

  3. We make them all the time, especially when we have guests stay for the weekend, So much fun making them in the morning! Have a great weekend Sue!
