How To Make A Pumpkin Spice Latte


Lately, I had a chat with my friend Nicole,who recently moved to a smaller town, and we were both boo- hooing about things we miss when we lived in a city.  We both agreed that small comforts like Starbucks/Second Cup were high on our ‘we miss you’ list.  Especially when certain seasons come around and Starbucks rolls out its Pumpkin Spice Latte!

So for my friend I thought I’d test and try some recipes to make our own PSL!

Bon Appetite!
