Cinnamon Pumpkin Spiced Latte ( For People Who Don’t Like Pumpkin Spiced Lattes )

I am ANNOYED at how quickly the world wants to say goodbye to summer and push Fall flavored coffee and all things pumpkin on us. The Pumpkin Spice Latte from Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks are out before the end of August.

HOW SWAY?

I love Fall. Fall is my absolute favorite season and it’s one of the reasons I started doing my October Photo a Day! I mean, chunky sweaters, boots, apple picking, pumpkins, cooler temps and..fall flavored coffee drinks. 

Now, I love my fall-flavored drinks, but anyone who knows me, knows that I can not stand most things pumpkin spice. But I was playing around with fall coffee recipes ( yes I do that) and I made a pumpkin-flavored latte that…even I like…maybe…occasionally…FINE. I like it. 

I’ve always found coffeehouse Pumpkin Spiced Lattes to be spicy or too bland or too sweet. But this is the anti Pumpkin Spice. My Cinnamon Pumpkin Spiced Latte is for people who don’t like Pumpkin Spiced Latte.  It’s creamy, it’s not too sweet. It’s..good. And you can make it right at home and not spend your life savings trying to get one in a cute cup for the gram. It’s easy to make and relies simply on Pumpkin Spice Pie Seasoning and Heavy Cream. S
