Skip the line at the coffee shop by making your own pumpkin spice latte at home. This recipe is easy to cut in half for a smaller batch or doubled for a big batch if you have a large slow cooker and you’re expecting a crowd.
If you want to make a creamier latte, you can use heavy cream instead of half and half. When you are purchasing your canned pumpkin at the grocery store, make sure you buy pure pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling. If you have pumpkin pie spice on hand you can replace the individual spices listed in the recipe for 1 tablespoon of pumpkin spice.
Ladle your pumpkin spice latte into your favorite coffee mug and top it with whipped cream, a cinnamon stick, or a sprinkle of ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. You could even drizzle your latte with caramel.
