DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte - served up in a mug

Pumpkin Spice fan?

It’s fall! Time for our favorite warm and frothy seasonal drink – the pumpkin spice latte! Whip up your own DIY version using real pumpkin whenever the mood hits. It rivals any coffee shop (and it’s so much cheaper, too)!

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte - adding ingredients to a pan

Pumpkin spice is life!

Try using real pumpkin puree to get your pumpkin spice fix. I promise this will taste even better than a syrup! Plus, it’s super easy to melt puree with a little pumpkin pie spice, along with your favorite type of milk.

Hip Tip: Use your leftover pumpkin to make my Starbucks pumpkin bread! It’s SO yum!

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte - blending ingredients with an immersion blender

Don’t have a milk frother to make lattes? No problem! I actually used my immersion hand blender to froth my latte, and it worked great!

Feel free to top your latte with some whipped cream and a little more pumpkin spice if desired. SO YUMMY! I love that this version has an authentic and rich pumpkin flavor with a little sweetness. This fall, treat yourself to this easy homemade version that’s both creamy and delicious.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
