Pumpkin Spice Latte
I haven’t had a cup of coffee in about 35 years. Caffeine and I just don’t play well together. Pumpkin Spice Latte is a lovely caffeine free hot drink that fits Fall like a warm cozy glove. The recipe can easily be adapted to suit your family’s tastes. You can absolutely add coffee or a shot of espresso to it to make it a drink all your own if you like.
Serve this hot with a big ole dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon to kids as a nice caffeine free alternative to hot chocolate. Spiced Pumpkin Latte would be a great drink to use for a Fall party or just to sip while sitting around a campfire. You’ll find many reasons to make and enjoy this delicious drink as the cold weather comes rolling in. Enjoy!
