I'm 100% willing to admit w/ no shame that I'm excited to start experiencing #allpumpkineverything again- including the infamous PSL. But, do you ever wish you could un-see something? For me it was the amount of sugar in a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. It seriously scarred me & I've been on the hunt for a DIY recipe ever since.
I found quite a few on pinterest, but nearly all of them had instructions to cook on a stovetop. But seriously, who has time for that in the morning? I'm lucky if I can muster up the energy to make a smoothie. This recipe takes place entirely in your coffee mug & all you need is a microwaves.
Enjoy this guilt-free pumpkin spice latte recipe (I took the honor of taste testing a few versions & I can assure you it's delicious)!
