Before you can make a homemade pumpkin spice latte, you need to make your pumpkin spice. But don’t worry, this is one of the easiest recipes in the world. In a small bowl, simply mix one part ground cloves, two parts ground ginger, two parts ground nutmeg, and eight parts ground cinnamon. Now you are ready to make your very own fall recipes at home.

In a saucepan, whisk together 1 cup of whole milk, 2 tablespoons of pumpkin purée, a tablespoon of maple syrup, a tablespoon of pumpkin spice, and half a tablespoon of vanilla extract. When the mixture is warm enough, blend it with an immersion blender. Pour the frothy milk mixture into your hot espresso and voilà. To make your latte extra special, top with some whipped cream and sprinkle it with a little bit of pumpkin spice.
