Pumpkin Spice Latte

 Pumpkin Spice Latte 

Yield: 1 large drink
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 4 min

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup hot brewed, strong coffee
  • 2 tablespoons half & half cream
  • 1 teaspoon granulated white sugar, or more to taste
  • whipped cream, & ground nutmeg,  Optional

Directions:

1. In a glass measuring cup or microwave-safe bowl, whisk together milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, spice and vanilla. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes- watch closely and remove it from the microwave when the milk is hot and frothy.

2. Pour the pumpkin milk into a tall mug or glass. Add hot coffee. Pour in the cream. Add a teaspoon of sugar. Stir, and taste. Add more sugar, if desired.

3. Optional, (but oh so good)… add whipped cream on top and a sprinkle of nutmeg.  Serve immediately!

Tips:

*Feel free to lighten up the recipe by using nonfat milk and fat-free half & half. It won’t be as rich, but it will still give you that yummy pumpkin latte flavor. *If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice in your collection of spices, make your own! Mix equal parts of cinnamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg- and measure from there.

Bon Appétit!
