There is nothing like a cold coffee, on a cozy evening when you just want to sit and relax with your family, and this Cold Pumpkin Spice Latte is my favorite when it comes to Fall and Winter. Easy, quick, and unique, this one will surely ‘WOW’ you with its taste.
As you all know by now, Pumpkin is one of my favorite ingredients to use, when the Fall sets in. I use it to make so many recipes, from cakes, bread, to Indian dishes, so it often happens that I am left with leftover Pumpkin Puree. And my favorite way to use the same is this Cold Pumpkin Spice Latte.
That perfect strong flavor of coffee with a hint of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, sweetened with maple syrup and some whipped cream on top, this one is perfect to serve to your guests too. This Recipe is for you to keep.
I tried it the first time in Starbucks during one of my trips and was instantly taken back by its incredible taste. Making it at home is even better. It’s less sugary, low in calories, economical, and customizable.
