The pumpkin pie spice latte came so early this year! Since it is finally chilly in St. Louis, its definitely time to cozy up with Fall treats like this pumpkin pie spice latte with a Chai Spiced Cinnamon Roll! We decided to take the pumpkin spice latte plunge this morning and make our own. We saved a few dollars and time, and this homemade pumpkin spice latte is more natural since it eliminates the use of flavored syrup. To make this latte vegan, use nut milk or coconut milk of your choice in place of milk. In the recipe section notes I have a couple other optional substitutes for sweeteners as well.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Latte
The first Starbucks pumpkin spice latte was served in 2003 when it was an option among their limited time holiday drinks. It did so well that it is now the most anticipated drink of the holiday season. Though this year the pumpkin spice latte made its debut in the hot summer month of August! And I thought only food bloggers released their holiday treats early!
