Pumpkin Season is Here

Don't you just love that Pumpkin Spice latte at the Favorite coffee shop? Well in the nation there was a shortage of the product. Some folks has to do without for a few day, while they restocked. So I looked on line to buy my own Pumpkin Pie syrup and make my own. The cost and calorie where less.

So here are the details:
 At the Coffee shop.... The Cost for a  Pumpkin spice Latte( 2% milk) is around 4 dollars and the calorie count is 310 per 16 oz. and add 70 more calories if you choose Whipped Cream .

My Homemade version.....The Cost about 1 dollars and 40 cents. The calorie count is about 90 per 16oz, without whipped Cream. you can make your own whipped cream for about half the calories of the Coffee shops'.

I order my syrup by the case and save money. the cost is less then in the market and I did not have to make unnecessary trips to  the store just to find out they did not have it. The link is in the recipe for you.
Frothing milk is better if the fat content is @ 2%. It hold up better. However you can use non fat milk in the machine. It just seems to deflate faster and the calories are about the same. the difference is in the fat content.

Pumpkin Pie Latte

8 oz of strongly brewed coffee
3/4 oz of Pumpkin Pie syrup ( I use Torani )
1 oz of 2% milk and a couple spoon fulls of froth ( I use my frothing machine)

put syrup in coffee cup
pour coffee into cup,
add warmed milk and stir
top with frothed Milk ( about 2 tablespoons)

Enjoy, My recipe taste just like the Coffee shop. If you like it sweeter you can add another 1/4 oz of syrup each 1/4 oz is 25 calories.

Calories= 45 per cup.(8oz)
cost is = .70 cents per 8 oz.
