Pumpkin Spice Latte

Happy Labor Day! To celebrate the long weekend and the beginning of September, I broke out a few Fall decorations and made pumpkin spice lattes! It is rainy here today, so I have had plenty of time to spend in the house. I'm just happy I have the day off. Look at this frothy deliciousness.
I already had all the ingredients (thankfully). The pumpkin pie syrup was leftover from last year. I got it at World Market. Here is everything you need to make this taste of fall latte.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
(Print Recipe)

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup double strength coffee
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie syrup or pumpkin spice syrup (I used sugar free)
a few pinches of pumpkin pie spice
Truvia or any sweetener, to taste (optional) I used one teaspoon

Heat one cup of almond milk in the microwave or on the stovetop, until heated but not boiling. Stir in syrup and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice. Froth with a milk frother, until slightly foamy. Pour into a large mug. Pour coffee on top. Sprinkle with a pinch of pumpkin pie spice. Stir in additional sweetener if desired.

This recipe can easily be adjusted to your taste. Add more coffee for a stronger latte, or use espresso. Or make it a steamer, and don't add any coffee! The only thing that really has calories in this recipe (if you use sugar free syrup) is the almond milk, which is only 35 calories per cup! One of the many reasons I LOVE almond milk.
While drinking this, I may have added a few pins to my Fall Pinterest pin board. And here are a few of my decorations that I put out so far.
Can you tell I'm excited about the change in seasons? The weather hasn't even started to change here yet, but I'm doing as much as I can to make it feel like Autumn! Sipping pumpkin spice latte's always makes it feel a little more like Fall.
