Gourmet coffee houses separate many of us from quite a few dollars around the holidays on drinks like this pumpkin spice latte. Save a few bucks and use quality ingredients at the same time to splurge at home.
This recipe requires actual pumpkin puree, though you will get a richer flavor out of butternut squash (and maintain the holiday “orange” theme at the same time). We keep a container of extra puree in the refrigerator during the holiday season for recipes just such as this.
This recipe makes two large lattes.
