DIY Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Pumpkin, pumpkin, and more pumpkin… I know you’ve seen a ton of it flying around the blog world these days, but if you’re like me, I can’t complain one bit!  I don’t care if everyone is posting recipes about it and talking about how much they love it, because I love it too!  The more pumpkin recipes, the better, in my opinion.

Well, good news – I have yet another pumpkin recipe for you!  It’s not a pumpkin bread, or muffins, or cupcakes, or oatmeal, but yep, you guessed it – a pumpkin spiced latte!  Unfortunately, I can’t in any way take credit for this.  My aunt gave it to me, and she  found it on the Crock Pot Girls Facebook page.  It looks like they have a website too, so make sure you check it out!  

Let’s just be honest here first though, who doesn’t like one of these bad boys?!

      That’s exactly what I thought when I got the recipe… I would’ve never have thought to do lattes in a crockpot. I’m excited to try other kinds too now!

    I really like this recipe. Mine came out slightly thickish and a tad bitter. Any recommendations for sweeting it up a bit and making it more loose?
