Take a moment and think about how amazing the weather has been this week. Fall is possibly one of the most amazing times of the year. Between the weather, the food and with Halloween and Thanksgiving right around the corner, how could you find a better season?

As the temperature becomes colder, coffee shops start coming out with their signature line of fall drinks.

The much awaited Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks finally returned a few weeks ago. The only downside is the price. Paying for that pumpkin coffee habit can get outrageous, and as college students, those prices are just not in our budget.

Well, that coffee maker in your dorm room does not have to make simple regular coffee. There are easy ways to spice up your coffee to taste like those expensive drinks you simply cannot live without.

One personal favorite is pumpkin spice coffee. Here is how you can make this favorite in your own dorm.

Combine the creamer, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon in a microwave-safe mug for 20 seconds.

This will help get everything heated up, mixed together and smelling great. As a bonus, this will make your kitchen smell amazing.

Then pour your brewed coffee into the cup and top the cup off with whipped cream. Instantly your pumpkin spice latte addiction is reachable.

You have a dorm brewed pumpkin spice coffee that you can make everyday without cutting your budget.

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1/2 cup vanilla creamer
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup medium to bold coffee
  • Whipped cream
