Fall is in the air, and that means it’s time to cozy up with a warm pumpkin spice latte!  Instead of using up your calories for the day on a sugar-heavy Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, try this one instead and save on cash too.  Here is a recipe for homemade pumpkin spice latte from Natalie Hodson (she also has a how-to video)… enjoy!
