Pumpkin Spice Latté
Pumpkin Spice, oh so nice!
Boots, scarves, jackets, orange and red leaves, and pumpkin lattes. Nothing makes me get into fall as much as these. That's why I wanted to share my favorite hot drink to make when fall slips in.
This is a perfect drink to keep you warm this fall. Who doesn't love a pumpkin latte when fall rolls around? This recipe is a familiar taste and same great flavor, but comes at a much cheaper price.
