“Pumpkin spice and everything nice” (pretty much my mantra for the fall season). Every year I love to make a few homemade pumpkin spice lattes (they’re better than Starbucks’ — I swear!), but this year I decided to try something a little bit different. This is a recipe that I have been wanting to create for a few years now, but just never got around to it. I’m so happy that I finally made it, though, because I love it! It’s similar to the pumpkin spice latte, but swapping out the hot coffee for something a little spicier.

This is a pumpkin spice chai latte (if you couldn’t tell by the title), and it is perfect for any kind of fall day. It warms you up when there’s a chill in the air and is perfect for either bundling up with a blanket at home or taking it to go for a day of leaf peeping. I sipped a cup of this on my way to the pumpkin patch this weekend, and it was the perfect fall festive day. So, without further ado, here is a my pumpkin spice chai latte recipe…

WhatYouDo_2

Mix all of the base ingredients together until evenly mixed and a dark color. You can store this in an air-tight container (like a mason jar) in the fridge for up to two weeks.

For the chai latte:
01. Pour four ounces boiling water over the chai tea bag. Let steep while you follow the next step.
02. Stir the pumpkin spice base and milk together in saucepan until smooth. Heat over medium-high heat until steaming hot.
03. Pour the hot milk mixture into the chai tea, then top with whipped cream and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg. Enjoy!

  2. I love the little how to! It makes making a pumpkin spice latte at home seem super easy, especially because I’m not a huge coffee fan so getting to swap it out for some tea works beautifully! I can’t believe I never thought of that. I can’t wait to give it a try.

    • So happy to hear that, Maggie! Let me know how you like it once you try it out. Thank you so much for reading!! xx
