On Tuesday, Sept. 5, the pumpkin spice latte (PSL) made its triumphant return to Starbucks locations across the country. However, customers have to pay $4.25 minimum each time they want a taste of the seasonal drink, which can add up quickly. In this video, we show you a simple way to make a PSL in the comfort of your own home.

“I drink pumpkin spice lattes almost everyday,” said Ashley Fodor, junior who’s featured in the video. “This homemade PSL was one of the best I’ve had.”

Buying coffee every day gets expensive,  so save a trip to your local coffee shop and your wallet by making this do-it-yourself drink at home. The recipe can be found on the Food Network’s website and below.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup hot espresso or strong brewed coffee
  • Sweetened whipped cream, for serving

Steps:

  1. Combine the milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla in a medium microwave safe bowl.
  2. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and vent with a small hole.
  3. Microwave until the milk is hot, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Whisk vigorously until the milk mixture is foamy, about 30 seconds.
  5. Pour the espresso or coffee into a large mug and add the foamed milk.
  6. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
