So this year I made my own craving cue that now I love more than the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, and half the cost I can have it any time I want it. If are crazy for the pumpkin spice latte like I’m you are going to love this recipe. I love this recipe and so dose my husband it is a winner in my family and I hope you enjoy it.

      Hmmmm, $4 a pop! Wow. Someone quick, write a hub telling us how to make our own great coffee at home for about 50 cents a cup! Maybe I can find that guy ... in the mirror!

      I love pumpkin spice lattes but afford to buy them out all the time, so I would really like to make this. Voted up, useful and shared.
