STARBUCKS COPYCAT RECIPES WITH COFFEE
Not everyone drinks coffee for several different reasons, and that's totally cool! However, we couldn't write a post about Starbucks copycat recipes without including a few ideas for those who DO enjoy coffee! That would be a MAJOR letdown for all of the coffee lovers out there.
These are some items that will take your drinks to the next level! However, you don't need all of them:
PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES
There's nothing that screams fall more than a Pumpkin Spice Latte! There are several different ways to achieve the classic taste we all crave. Honestly, this Pumpkin Latte recipe from Bigger Bolder Baking pretty much hits the spot.
That said, there's a little-known shortcut to making a copycat Pumpkin Spice Latte that is almost identical that takes less work. Grab some Spiced Chai Latte mix and add it to your coffee or espresso with steamed milk! Then, you'll have one of the tastiest homemade Starbucks copycat recipes with little to minimal effort. If you're feeling adventurous, top your whipped cream with pumpkin syrup for good measure!
CINNAMON DOLCE LATTE
Warm, cinnamony deliciousness in a cup… yes, please! Cinnamon Dolce Lattes are one fall drink that give the pumpkin spice latte a run for its money. But let's just not pick favorites, mmmkay?
