It's that time of the year again... Fall season! The outside temperatures are just right, the trees have become colorful canvases, and Halloween is just around the corner - literally.

The staple drink of the season falls in the category of the good ol' pumpkin spice latte, a signature classic that's become more than a trendy beverage. You see it everywhere as soon as October hits, including markets, cafe's and bookstores.

If you're an "on the go" kind of person, there's always a Starbucks Cafe lingering somewhere nearby, brewing these drinks up by the dozen. But if you're more of a "home-body" during this season, that likes to cozy up on the couch and watch horror/thriller flicks, why leave the house? Make one in the comforts of your own kitchen.

HYPEFRESH® got the directions, now all you gotta do is follow the recipe.



1 cupmilk, divided, 1 tablespoonwhite sugar, or more to taste, 1 tablespoonpumpkin puree, 1 teaspoonpumpkin pie spice, 1/2 teaspoonvanilla extract, 1/4 cupbrewed espresso.


1. Whisk 1/2 cup milk, sugar, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over low heat.

2. Simmer for 5 minutes.

3. Whisk in remaining 1/2 cup milk.

4.Pour milk mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove pulp. Return milk mixture to saucepan and simmer, whisking, 2 minutes.


Don't forget to pair this beverage with a tasty sweet loaf of pumpkin bread! It's the perfect pairing that goes with this seasonal delicacy. You can find pumpkin loaf at your local market or at most cafe's while in season. Enjoy!
