Fall is peeking its head around the corner and that means one thing and one thing only: Pumpkin Spice Latte madness. If you're already loading up your Starbucks gift cards in preparation, you might want to try this homemade pumpkin spice latte recipe before heading out the door. You may just realize how incredibly easy it is to make a delicious PSL at home.
Because Arizona doesn't believe in fall starting anywhere close to the crazy PSL season, I decided it was safest to make an iced version, but this can easily be made into a hot or cold version. The best part about this drink? It can be added in as your morning coffee drink because it's super easy to make.
The key to any good coffee drink recipe is to start with great coffee. With these types of drinks, I like to start with a dark roast or preferably an espresso roast. Since a Pumpkin Spice Latte typically has real espresso in it, using espresso roast will allow you to just have coffee but with a bolder, most robust flavor. This usually works best because of the liquid creamer that is already sweetened.
Using International Delight Creamers is perfect for making your own "lattes" at home because they have a great selection of flavors, especially this time of year! If you've having guests over for the holidays, it's perfect to keep a few of these quarts on hand for the different taste preferences your guests might have!

Don't tell Starbucks, but I think I've found my new favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte. The espresso roast flavor combined with the delicious I.D. Pumpkin Spice Creamer which really tastes like pumpkin just makes this my number one go to drink for the fall. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll be switching over to a hot version, but for now, this iced version will do just fine.
