Why I love this latte
I'm a latte girl and always ready to try out new flavors! To tell you the truth, I easily drink 2-3 lattes a day, and this version of pumpkin iced latte is one of my favorites as summer draws to a close.

- All the flavors of Autumn to enjoy in summer with a wonderful blend of pumpkin spice made with my homemade pumpkin pie spice.
- A generous, delicious drink with a whipped cream topping.
- Perfect for getting your coffee fix and cooling down at the same time.
