How to Make a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Home

Fall is my favorite time of year, and nothing says fall like pumpkin spice latte. Buying one at a coffee shop can get expensive, and make a special trip for a latte is not convenient.

Therefore I decided to learn how to make pumpkin lattes at home. It is like a pumpkin cappuccino with whipped cream. This delicious creamy spiced pumpkin coffee drink is so easy to make at home. I enjoy all the coffee drinks, but this one is my favorite seasonal flavor.
