Though we might not always like to admit to ourselves, some of us out there are suckers for a good pumpkin spice latte. However, do we want to spend $6 every time we have that craving? I know I don’t. 

After many walks to my local Starbucks, I decided that I could make my own "Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Latte" in the comfort of my very own home.

  1. 2. Add pumpkin purée to your slow cooker because we need that extra shot of pumpkin flavor in our lattes.
  2. 3. Whisk everything together until well combined. Everything is cooked, so no need to worry about anything making you sick.  
  3. 4. Heat on low for about 4 to 6 hours, or keep it on low to stay warm all night.
  4. 5. Garnish the lattes with whipped cream and a dash of pumpkin pie spice for some extra boldness and flavor.

If you are feeling daring and want to bring it to your next Xmas office party, you can also add a little rum or bourbon into the mix. Or, keep the latte warm and bring it to your next friend get-together, or store it for your upcoming work week.
