Tip Me: Pumpkin Spice Latte

This time of the year reminds us of pumpkins and pumpkin recipes.  A lot of people flock to Starbucks because they can purchase a Pumpkin Spice Latte but I want to show you how to make your own.

In order to do this, I used two new products that I purchased recently. The first product is the Keurig B60 single cup brewing system and the second one is Torani Pumpkin Pie Syrup.

First, let me give some basic information about the Keurig brewing system.  If you are not familiar with these products, they are a single cup of coffee or tea maker.  Brewing one cup at a time.  I bought my system at Sam’s Club after doing a lot of research on pricing.  Below is a link to a video of the product.  This is not my video but I thought it accurately showed how the Keurig system works.

The brewing system is an investment and it does cost more to use the K-cups than buying regular coffee, so keep this in mind.  However, if you like coffee or tea and want an easy system, this is great.  

The other fun product is the Torani Pumpkin Pie Syrup.  This can be used in a lot of ways, I even think it would be great over ice cream, wow would that be a sugar rush!

Ok, lets make the latte.  I am using a french vanilla iced coffee K-cup and I brew my coffee over ice.  They tell you to use a plastic cup because glass might break.  This is hard for me because I do not like drinking from plastic cups so I do not really have any in my house except for the ones with my blender.  Once my coffee is brewed, you just need to add the amount of syrup to your liking and I actually add some cream.  That was easy and probably saved you some money if you use your brewing system regularly.  You can also top with a little bit of pumpkin pie spice.  Hope you enjoy!
