Pumpkin Spice Steamer

Pumpkin Spice Steamer with Caramel Sauce

Today I am sharing my favorite Fall beverage and something else to put that yummy caramel sauce on.  I always know it is Fall when Starbucks starts serving their Pumpkin Spice Steamer.  It gets a little expensive going to Starbucks on a regular basis so I decided I needed to figure out how to make my own at home.  It wasn’t hard.

I made a trip to Cash & Carry and picked up a bottle of this….

It doesn’t taste exactly the same but close enough!

Then you need some milk, I’m a 2% girl.  And a pretty cup of course!

I heat my milk up in the microwave and then I use my little frother thingy.  I picked it up at Cost Plus World Market but I have seen them at kitchen shops.  It swirls and whirls the milk and adds foam to it.  Just like Starbucks.

My frother is battery operated.

Then the crowning glory.  Some whip cream and caramel sauce!

Starbucks doesn’t put caramel sauce on theirs – that is my special touch when I am feeling like something extra special.

So no real recipe here – just pumpkin spice syrup, milk, whip cream and a little caramel sauce.  Welcome to Fall!

      Good question Caryn – It really depends on how sweet you like it. I usually put about 1 1/2 – 2 Tbsp of syrup into a cup of milk – the cup probably holds about 1 1/2 cups of milk? You can do it to taste.

    This thrifty girl makes homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup. Easy as can be and so nice to have on hand for a little afternoon treat. Just google “pumpkin spice syrup recipe” and you’ll find a bunch. :)

    Oh YUM! I have been craving Starbucks, its the only thing that soothes my morning sickness. I will definitely have the hubby pick up some syrup for me next time he goes to the store :)

    Here’s a tip from a coffee shop owner and crazy pumpkin addict :-) The pumpkin sauce tastes WAY better than the pumpkin syrup and will get you closer to the Starbucks taste. It’s more expensive (about $15), but it comes in a giant bottle that will last you all fall and winter. You could split it with a friend too. Cash & Carry has it in the same aisle as the syrups. Here’s a pic so you know what you’re looking for if you decide to try it


    Happy fall!
