Before you find out how to prepare, some curiosity about this trend.

PSL (pumpkin spice milk) what is it?

Before becoming a world-famous trend and used in the preparation of cakes of all kinds (such as cakes, muffins, ice cream, cookies, cheesecake), the Pumpkin Spice Latte was a coffee drink!

The authorship of this drink is not certain but, commonly, is associated with Starbucks that in 2003 presented it for the first time on the market, as a limited edition for the autumn season.

Pumpkin Spice Latte was, and is currently, an espresso coffee flavoured with typical autumn spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove), milk, pumpkin and whipped cream.

The Pumpkin sauce used is not only made of pumpkin, but a percentage of real pumpkin is actually present inside the puree.

CNBC published data on the sales of this coffee. Pumpkin Spice Latte is Starbucks' most popular seasonal drink, with worldwide sales of around 424 million. Forbes estimated that the drink corresponds to over $100 million in revenue for Starbucks, and as of 2015, this figure is growing.

The bevel has become a trend, and the taste has become popular and commercial to inspire products of all kinds, not only food! Just think about scented candles, body care creams, hair products, room fragrances and many others.

In the kitchen, it is perfect for making cakes of all kinds to celebrate the autumn season and the arrival of cold!

You can also find PSL-flavored herbal teas, coffee blends and ready-to-drink drinks.
On the market, it is increasingly easy to find ready-made PSL spice mixes.
