Pumpkin Spice and Chill // DIY PSL

Fri-yaaayyy! So happy to see you again! What do you like to do on Friday nights? Since I am a momma of 3, my Friday night usually consist of pizza night and a little Netflix and chill. I wouldn't want it any other way. If you have the same kind of Friday night as me, instead of Netflix and chilling, maybe you could try Pumpkin Spice and chilling. Huh, huh?! 😉 I'm sure you are like, "what are you talking about?!" Well, if you are a basic girl like myself and love PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) from Starbucks, I have found a great recipe to try at home!

So for today's "Friday Favorites" I decided to share this amazing PSL recipe that my mom sent me and had to try! I was honestly shocked at how much I loved it...maybe even more (dare I say) than Starbucks! 🙊 It is sooo much cheaper , you don't have to fight the crowd or wait in the car line for 20 minutes, and you can have all year round. So without further ado, let's get right to!

Ingredients: (note this is for one PSL)
1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
2 teaspoon of pumpkin
2 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespoon of vanilla
2 cups milk
2 shots of espresso
1/2 teaspoon of pepper

First, turn your stovetop to medium heat and add a medium-sized pot to the burner. Once the pot heats up, take your 1/2 tsp of pumpkin spice and lightly toast it in the pan for a few seconds, while you stir continuously so it doesn't burn. Once the pumpkin spice is toasted, add in the 2 tsp of pumpkin and continue to cook for three minutes. The pumpkin should darken as it cooks; once it darkens, add in the 2 tbsp of sugar and mix well with a whisk. Now add in your 2 tbsp of vanilla and of 1/2 tsp pepper. You are almost there! Now add in the 2 cups of milk very slowly, while mixing very well. Once you have blended well, add in the 2 shots of espresso. Pour in your favorite coffee mug, add whipped cream, a sprinkle of pumpkin spice, and Voila! You have just made a PSL right from your kitchen! How easy was that!?

If you want to make more to last through the day, I would just recommend doubling the ingredient list. I only made one serving but I know doubling the list would work. I know this was a little different  from my usual"Friday Favorites" but this was my favorite item of the week so I had to share! If you would like to see more recipes in the future just let me know! :) Have a great weekend!
