Pumpkin Spice Latte

  • 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of white sugar (or sugar substitute)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 to 2 shots of brewed espresso (1/2 cup of coffee if you do not have an espresso machine)

 

Directions:

Brew your espresso, or coffee. Meanwhile, in a sauce pan, combine milk, pumpkin, vanilla, sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Cook on medium heat until steaming. Whisk until desired "frothiness", careful not to bring to a boil. Pour the espresso or coffee into your favorite mug, pour the pumpkin spiced milk over it

 

Enjoy!
