Cheryl's Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

I don't like the new pumpkin spiced coffee creamers that are out this season, but I do like my own homemade Pumpkin Spiced Latte.  

As far as Biggby, Caribou, and Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, I love Starbucks the best.  Yes, I sacrificially suffered through taste testing all of them so I could give you this review. :)
