Pumpkin Spice Latte with Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

I am not one to order fancy drinks at the coffee shop for two reasons:

1) they break the bank

2) they are loaded with sugar

Therefore, I've found this super simple and ridiculously tasty homemade pumpkin spice latte recipe! I've added essential oils, of course. Hold on to your hats!


2 cups milk (I use almond milk)

4 T. organic pumpkin puree

2 T. sugar (I use truvia baking blend)

1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice

1/2 t. vanilla extract

1/2 cup strong coffee or espresso

1 drop cinnamon bark essential oil

Combine all ingredients except the coffee and essential oil into a microwave safe bowl, mix together, cover, and heat on high for 1.5 minutes. If it seems to need more time, add 30 seconds. When the mixture is steaming hot, take out of microwave and mix vigorously for 30 seconds until frothy. Add 1 drop of the essential oil to the brewed coffee and stir. Divide the coffee in to two mugs and pour 1 cup of the milk mixture into each mug. Sprinkle with a bit more pumpkin pie spice, then relax and enjoy this better-than-store-bought fall drink!
