Pumpkin Spice Latte

Welcome to the first post of our #PumpkinSpiceSeries!! We couldn’t be more excited for fall, especially fall foods! What better way to start off our series than with the classic pumpkin spice latte?!

Did you know that a tall “skinny” Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte has 216 calories?  Try this amazingly easy and absolutely delicious recipe for just you or make a few to share! Not to mention, it has 100 calories less than the Starbucks version (it’s not $4 either). I’m telling you, it is so good that I am drinking it at 10pm (yup, tomorrow is gonna be rough).

I don’t have an espresso machine, however a friend got us this awesome and adorable Bialetti 1 cup espresso maker that you simply put on the stove. It’s a great option for a small kitchen or for someone who isn’t ready to commit to a larger espresso maker.
