Here's How to Make Pumpkin Spice Latte

It's quite doable at home. Puree roasted (or steamed!) kalabasa (aka pumpkin or squash) chunks in a blender then store, refrigerated, until needed. It's something you can use for a lineup of pumpkin spice recipes! Add two tablespoons of the autumn-hued puree to your coffee latte blend, then add sugar and the pumpkin pie spice to taste before blending into a frothy, creamy mix. Top with whipped cream for the 'gram. But why bother? Keep it simple! Just add the spice mix to your coffee, and have it as is since it already makes such a fragrant, delicious difference!
