Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Latte
No matter how we feel about it, Pumpkin Spice Latte season is already upon us.
Every food and drink company want to cash in on the belief that if they make it, you’ll buy it because it’s Fall. Bikini season is over so we might as well start carb-loading until Boxing Day.
While the most famous Pumpkin Spice hot drink is from Starbucks, wouldn’t it be nice if you could make it in the comfort of your own home?
Good news! Here’s a super quick recipe to make your own, delicious PSL.
