One of my favorite things about Fall I a pumpkin spice latte (with two pumps of vanilla) from starbucks. At our home in California there is a Starbucks EVERYWHERE (two on either side of my work, another down the street from my house, plus many more across the town... I believe there were like 8 or something crazy for the 90,000 population town). Now we live in a town where the closest Starbucks is 30 minutes away. I am just not willing to drive there. (Which is actually GOOD for our bank account)
We had to come up with a alternative.
I found this recipe from good ol' pinterest -- but here is the original source .
The original recipe is made for like 8-10 people... so I halfed it (and played around with the vanilla and sugar) and I am pretty happy with it. (:
I would say this serves like 4-6.
(I know the pics are probably gonna be out of order. Lol)
-2 cups coffee
- 4 cups milk
- 4 TBSP pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 4 TBSP sugar (I did 5)
- 4 TBSP vanilla (I did 5)
- mix the milk and coffee together in the crock pot.
- mix the other ingredients in a different bowl.
- combine all ingredients in the crock pot and stir.
- cook in high for 2 hours.
- enjoy your season of fall in a cup(:
(The longer it is in the crockpot the better. It blends all the flavors together. After the two hours I put it on low while I finished my first cup and then had another cup. (: I had leftovers so I put it in the fridge and it was just as good this morning.)
Hope you enjoy! (:
Let me know how you like it!
