A Little Tipsy: Pumpkin Steamer

Hi there! I'm Michelle from A Little Tipsy. I am so happy to be here joining Amanda as a part of Fall Fever!
Something about fall with the crisp air and cool night breezes that draws me toward something deliciously warm to drink. I love a yummy Starbuck's Pumpkin Steamer as much as the next girl, but those paper cups of heaven can take a toll on your pocket book. So, I took things in to my own hands and found out how very simple it is to make your own pumpkin steamer.



Pumpkin Steamer
  • 3/4 ounce pumpkin spice syrup
  • 3/4 ounce vanilla-flavored syrup
  • 8 ounces cold milk
  • Whipped Cream
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice
1. Steam syrup and cold milk together. (or if you're like me rock it ghettoville style and use the microwave for about minute and a half)
2. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.

You can get the pumpkin spice syrup online. But, I hear if you want it just like Starbuck's you might want to get Torani or Da Vinci pumpkin sauce (which is creamier and thicker) instead of syrup, which will run you quite a bit more. If you want to make your own, I found a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Syrup.

Just FYI, I tried just using vanilla and pumpkin pie spice, but my attempt at a short cut did not turn out so well. All the spice just floats to the top or sinks to the bottom, so you have to constantly stir it.


Great by the mugful, or make a big batch for a party!

Ooohhh--- that looks so yummy! I cannot wait to try it! and yay to the savings!

This sounds so good. I love fall when Starbucks gets their pumkin spice lattes back. This may be
a good substitute for a caffein free version.
