The ultimate guide to Pumpkin Spice Lattes at home: Three simple recipes to bring out your basic side.
OK just admit it. You just know there’s nothing better than rocking a couple of dozen scarves, picking up your impossibly tiny Chihuahua and shouting “OHMYGAWD”, as you slurp on a sugary and comforting PSL.
– 1 cup milk (any kind) (ohmygaaaawd I’m, like, literally obsessed with Oat Milk)
– 2 tsp. of sugar (use brown or white or even sweetener if you’re, like, totally fat)
– 1 tsp. vanilla extract
– ¼ tsp. cinnamon powder (for garnish)
– Whipped cream (optional but, like, you’re basically dead to me if you don’t add this)
Pumpkin Spice Lattes with an Aeropress
Urgh, so this summer I totally went camping but there were like hella mosquitos and my Uggs got SO muddy.
But it was OK because we made PSL’s with an Aeropress and it was so fetch.
18g of espresso
Invert the Aeropress, dump the coffee in and fill up with water.
Leave for 3-4 minutes
Flip and plunge.
In a small pot on the stove, combine pumpkin puree, sugar and pumpkin spice. Stir for a couple of minutes until blended.
Add milk and vanilla extract.
Pour your brewed coffee into this mixture and whisk until smooth.
Slowly pour into your mug of choice.
Top it with whipped cream, sprinkle some cinnamon.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes with a Moka Pot and Milk Steamer
HONESTLY, as soooo gooood as camping was it was annoying because a seagull totally flew off with my tiny dog and Steve started crying (but that’s probably because he’s totally put on like 20lbs this summer).
So, like, I’m now low-key obsessed with indoor PSL’s. Especially as there are things out there that totally steam milk for you so your nails don’t get chipped.
Start with preparing your coffee in the Moka Pot.
I usually use 25g espresso grind coffee and use 350g water
In a small pot on the stove, combine pumpkin puree, sugar, vanilla and pumpkin spice. Stir for a couple of minutes until blended.
Pour your brewed coffee into this mixture.
Fill a mug about 1/3 of the way full with the coffee/pumpkin spice mix.
Now, steam the milk using a milk steamer (the Breville milk steamer is by far the best at this)
Pour the steamed milk into the mug. Top it with whipped cream, a dash of cinnamon for garnish.
PSL’s with the Rocket 58 Espresso Machine and Grinder
OK so like, I can’t even believe Steve. I’m all like “oh yeah so I totally have a milk steamer” and he’s like “yeah well I’m so extra I have a literal espresso machine in my house”.
I went to see it and it’s sooo nice. I’m so jealous, but at least I don’t have love handles like he does.
In a pan, heat pumpkin puree, sugar, pumpkin spice and vanilla extract to create the pumpkin flavouring.
Put this all in a mug.
Grind your coffee and pull a double espresso shot. Steam the milk and pour it into your mug.
Stir vigorously until the pumpkin flavouring is completely dissolved.
Pour the espresso shot into this mixture. Top with whipped cream, add a dash of cinnamon for garnish!
