This pumpkin spice latte recipe makes one drink, so, if you’re the designated barista in your household or group of friends, don’t forget to do the math first.
Grab a small pot and, over medium heat, combine your main ingredients: milk, pumpkin purée, spices and vanilla extract.

PRO TIP: pour some hot boiling water into your glass to keep your pumpkin spice latte piping hot for longer.
If, on the contrary, you want to learn how to make pumpkin spice latte at home for your entire household, go on and brew a large carafe with your automatic coffee maker.
Discard the hot water if you’ve used it, pour the coffee into the glass, and top it up with the pumpkin spice mixture. If you want, garnish it with a generous squirt of whipped cream and another sprinkle of spices on top.
That’s a traditional pumpkin spice latte for you.
