Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk

It's also the key to a DIY pumpkin spice latte

The pumpkin spice latte may be the bane of Martha Stewart's existence, but it's still a universal symbol for fall. It's also expensive, especially if you turn this spiced drink into a daily habit.

Luckily, Trader Joe's has a seasonal product that will fulfill all your PSL hopes and dreams without draining your bank account. Its pumpkin spice almond beverage, a silky mix of almonds, pumpkin purée and warm spices, is back for 2017. It's a natural substitute for making an at-home coffee shop treat, and since it's only two dollars for a quart, it's definitely more bang for your buck.

If you're not the latte type, you can simply use it to add sweater weather flavor to a cup of coffee. Or go pumpkin spice crazy: Swap out your typical milk choice for oatmeal, bake it into a cake or use it to make pie-flavored smoothies.

If last year was any indication, when "sales were as brisk as the autumn air," you should probably get shopping.
