I love going out for fancy coffee drinks. They're just so expensive!
So, I try to make them at home as much as I can.
I've figured out some easy versions of several hot and iced lattes.
A couple of weeks ago, I figured out a simple way to make a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
I simply mix about eight ounces (one cup) of hot milk (I use coconut milk) with two tablespoons of vanilla simple syrup (I'll post this recipe below), two shots (about four tablespoons) of espresso or very strong coffee, and a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Super simple and super yummy!
To make your own vanilla simple syrup, boil one cup of water with one cup of sugar until the sugar is dissolved completely. Add 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (I love the Trader Joe's brand) and stir.
It can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks in a covered jar and used as needed.
The drink recipe above can be a vanilla latte with by leaving out the pumpkin pie spice. Enjoy!
