DIY Pumpkin spice lattes: Cheap Trick Thursday

October 06, 2011|Liz F. Kay

If you are a fan of that harbinger of autumn, the pumpkin spice-flavored latte, we've got a way for you to indulge on a regular basis without your wallet even noticing.

Anyone who can make coffee at home is able to put together a respectable version of the drink for a fraction of the price, with this DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe

All you need is milk, brewed coffee (or espresso, to be true to the recipe, no?), some flavoring agents and sugar. The recipe calls for foaming milk on the stove, but here's an easier way to foam milk in the microwave.

Invest in all the ingredients and you'll be sipping pumpkin spice goodness multiple times, without having to shell out cash for each one. Plus! You'll be able to customize each cup, using skim milk or making other tweaks.

Here's another suggestion: once you've opened that can of pumpkin, avoid wasting the rest by adding it to lots of foods, like oatmeal or a smoothie, for a nutritious boost. (Or freeze it.)
