Don’t get me wrong, I love a good PSL (pumpkin spice latte) as much as the next fanatic. But hey, let’s face it. It can be kind of a buzzkill (haha, get it?) when just a tall version costs over $5.
So, what better way to remedy this problem than to create my own delicious, and way more economical, tasty fall coffee at home? This one may not be pumpkin spice (I will certainly work on one of those as well!), but it absolutely hits the spot when I’m craving a creamy cup of coffee goodness.
100% maple syrup and a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg swirled into a mug of steamed soy milk (or your other milk of choice) is where it’s at. Personally, I like mine sweetened just to the point where you pick up the maple flavor. If you prefer yours sweeter, simply increase the amount of syrup. Also, I used unsweetened soy milk. If you have a version with added sugar, that will also play into the sweetness level.
Gosh, I can’t believe we are half way through November already!? Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, is just over a week away! Lots of hours in the kitchen lay ahead. Yay! You can bet I’ll be sipping on several of these babies to keep me going!
