homemade pumpkin spice latte

I don’t think there’s anyone that loves a Pumpkin Spice Latte more than my mom. So for her 50+ birthday today, I’m whipping up this recipe from one of my Young Living leaders! Also, I think it’s pretty fitting that Starbucks brings back the PSL on the exact day of my mom’s birth, hah!

Speaking of which, I can’t remember the last time I physically walked into a Starbucks … it’s definitely been years. When I was in college, I went to Starbucks more than I went to the library! (and that’s saying something because I’m a nerd 🤘🏼). Nowadays, I love making coffee at home, so when I saw this PSL recipe, I knew I had to give it a go!

This tastes SO similar to a legit Pumpkin Spice Latte and I AM IN PUMPKIN HEAVEN! Give me all the chunky sweaters, cold weather + fall diffuser blends!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

ingredients —

+ 1 cup milk or non-dairy alternative
+ 1.5 tbsp pumpkin puree
+ 1 shot of espresso or 4-oz of very strong coffee
+ 1 tsp honey or agave
+ 1 drop of Thieves vitality essential oil*
+ optional: whipped cream, creamer, sugar (if you like your PSLs sweet) + pumpkin pie spice to sprinkle on top

instructions —

+ Combine milk, pumpkin and espresso in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
+ Stir often, til it starts to simmer.
+ Remove from heat, add the honey/agave and let it cool for about 5 minutes.
+ Add 1 drop of Thieves vitality essential oil and stir thoroughly. If you want it more on the sweeter side, add some sugar.
+ Pour into a cup and enjoy! Top with whipped cream, frothed creamer + pumpkin pie spice sprinkled on top for Instagram 💁🏻‍♀️

*If you don’t have Thieves vitality essential oil, DM me! hah (but seriously). Or use pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract to get the right pumpkin-y flavor!

Happy almost fall + a very happy birthday to my best friend, my mama. xoxo.
