Heart-warming Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte

It is only September, but I am in a serious Pumpkin mood. It is when you crave everything pumpkin-flavored. I decided not to wait until Thanksgiving and gave in to it. During the past two weekends, I have made healthy pumpkin bars, healthy pumpkin dip, pumpkin crunch bars, and pumpkin spice chai latte. I have not satisfied my craving yet, so I am sure I will continue looking for something pumpkin to make next weekend. We will need to make sure to pick up another can of it tomorrow. 

I am planning on posting all four recipes, but this one has been my favorite. Instead of going to a coffee shop and spending over $5 on a single chai latte, make it in the comfort of your own home and enjoy it with a good book or over a conversation with your loved ones. I am sure they would love to try some, too! 



Heart-warming Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte
(adopted from Texanerin Baking)

You will need:
- 1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
- 2 cups of milk of your choice (I used whole organic milk)
- 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 black tea bags
- cinnamon to sprinkle on top 

Yield: 2 cups

Directions:

1) In a medium saucepan, bring all the ingredients (except for the teabags) to a boil over medium heat. 



2) Take the saucepan off the heat, add the teabags, and let them steep for 3-5 minutes. 

3) Pour into a mug and sprinkle with cinnamon before serving. 

4) Enjoy!!!

Depending on how sweet you like your drinks, you can decrease or increase the amount of honey. 

My husband and I loved it and will surely make it again!
