Something about fall with the crisp air and cool night breezes that draws me toward something deliciously warm to drink. I love a yummy Starbuck’s Pumpkin Steamer as much as the next girl, but those paper cups of heaven can take a toll on your pocket book. So, I took things in to my own hands and found out how very simple it is to make your own pumpkin steamer.
- 3/4 ounce pumpkin spice syrup
- 3/4 ounce vanilla-flavored syrup
- 8 ounces cold milk
- Whipped Cream
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
1. Steam syrup and cold milk together. (or if you’re like me, use the microwave for about minute and a half)
2. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.
You can get the pumpkin spice syrup online. But, I a little birdie told me if you want it just like Starbuck’s you might want to get Torani or Da Vinci pumpkin sauce (which is creamier and thicker) instead of syrup, which will run you quite a bit more. If you want to make your own, here is a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Syrup.
Great by the mugful, or make a big batch for a party! I’m thinking a pumpkin steamer would make a fabulous addition to Thanksgiving breakfast! Sip it while preparing the feast!
