Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

As soon as September rolls around, I’m ready for fall and looking forward to one of my favorite fall treats – Pumpkin Spice Lattes. The problem is, I live in South Carolina and we still have temperatures in the 90s, making those PSL’s much less enjoyable.

Last year, I came across the idea of an iced pumpkin spice latte for the first time and I was hooked. Of course I had to play around with some ideas and come up with a recipe of my own. (Let’s face it, I can’t afford to head down to the local coffee shop once a day to pick one up there).

This is such a great lunch time treat or afternoon pick-me-up. My favorite time to fix it is right before I head out to pick my daughter up from school. I get to relax for a few minutes in the car pickup line, do a little knitting and sip on my drink.

Ready to give it a try? Here’s the recipe. ¬†You can make your own pumpkin spice mix to use in this recipe or your favorite pumpkin pie one.
