Creamy Pumpkin Coffee

Confession time: I’m not a fan of the pumpkin spice craziness. Don’t get me wrong, I kind of enjoy it, but — yes, there is a but— there are so many species going on that I completely lose the pumpkin flavor. Not so cool.

 

 


I’ve tasted a trizillion time Starbucks’ ridiculously famous pumpkin spice coffee and have to say that I’m not impressed. Besides, it’s a little bit overpriced for a coffee — Starbucks lovers don’t hate me, please. You’d understand me if you came from the region with the best coffee on the planet.

So, one day I decided to make my own version without the overwhelming spice factor. In this recipe I only use cinnamon, but of course be free to use pumpkin spice powder to make your own copycat Starbucks pumpkin spice latte — it is waaay better than the watery Starbucks version.

This is not exactly the healthiest beverage but the days of working out for the summer body are behind me and now I just want to proudly embrace my cozy clothes. Besides, I usually just make one of these scrumptious and yummy coffees once a week at most.

Also, you can make a healthier version using low-fat heavy cream and take away the whipping cream topping.

After you try this recipe once, you will never go back!
