There are ways you can make the classic favourite at home, and even ensure it's heatwave-friendly.

The Ice Co revealed how you can cool down your coffee by making an iced pumpkin spice latte, as well as the original version.

At Starbucks, the famous beverage is currently on menu for £4.45, which is a little pricey.

If customers were to spend £18.50 on bulk ingredients at home, it would make around 10 individual drinks.

But instore, £18.50 would only cover the cost of just four frappes.

This means it's much cheaper to make your own, and you don't need to buy many ingredients to pull it off.

So, if you want to get those autumnal vibes brewing without breaking the bank, this may be a good option.

And it's even better news if you work from home, as you can still get your daily fuel by sipping on your favourite warming beverage.
