For 1 serving size* you'll need:
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/8 cup espresso or 1/4 cup really strong coffee
In a mason jar with a lid (or something that can be sealed & is microwavable; I improvised.) combine the milk, pumpkin and sugar.
Shake vigorously until it's slightly foamy and then microwave for one minute. Repeat this step until it's foamy and hot to your satisfaction. Add the vanilla extract and stir/shake lightly.
Pour it into your mug while holding back the foam with a spoon. Add your espresso/coffee. Then top it off with the foam.*
And that's IT! Enjoy your creamy delicious, affordable, Pumpkin Spice Latte!
If you try it, do let me know what you think. It's really the type of recipe you can play around with. If you prefer a more milky flavor over pumpkin (like Starbucks's) you can just adjust the portions of each to find your perfect combination. Happy Autumn! :-)

*I doubled my recipe and actually skipped the foam part.
