Tell StarBucks Goodbye!

Paying $4.oo for a cup of coffee is not frugal! I love a cup from Starbucks, it's so good! But I'm cheap! My grandpa always said it was stupid to pay $4.00 for a cup of "fancy" coffee! Below are some recipes for some "fancy" coffee drinks that will help keep some money in your pocket!

Pumpkin Spice Latte
2 cups milk
1 cup very strong coffee (4 tablespoons coffee grounds to 1 cup of hot water)
2 tablespoons vanilla
4 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon spice
2 heaping spoonfuls of pumpkin
Pour all of the ingredients into a pot and heat over medium-high heat until the coffee is steaming hot, whisking with a wire whisk until the ingredients are incorporated and a little frothy. Pour into mugs and top with fresh whipped cream & cinnamon. Enjoy!
Serves 2!

  Cinnamon Dolce Latte

1/2 cup strong coffee
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/3 cups 1% low-fat milk
In a large pan, mix the cinnamon and sugar with a bit of milk.
Add the rest of the milk and bring to a boil.
Just as the mixture comes to a boil, take it off the heat.
Pour your coffee into your favorite mug.
Pour in the milk and serve immediately.
