Here it is:
Pumpkin Spiced Latte
Makes 2-3 servings
1 cup very strong brewed coffee
1 1/2 cup milk
4 TB cooked pumpkin puree (I just used the canned stuff)
Generous 2 1/2 TB sugar or 4 packets Splenda (adjust, depending on how sweet you like it)
1 TB vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Optional: Whipped cream and ground cinnamon
- Combine the milk, pumpkin and sugar or Splenda in a medium saucepan. Heat on medium heat until very hot and almost to a boil. DO NOT LET IT BOIL.
- Remove from heat and add spice and vanilla. Use a whisk, hand mixer, or stick blender to whip up the milk. (I used my Cuisinart Hand Blender). Whip it up until it is nice and frothy.
- Add the coffee to the milk mixture and divide into 2 large or 3 average-sized mugs.
- Top with whipped cream and cinnamon if desired.
