Pumpkin Spice Latte

Monday, October 17, 2011

This weekend we may have gone a little pumpkin crazy. Pumpkin pancakes with pumpkin butter, pumpkin lasagna, and the recreation of my favorite fall beverage, the pumpkin spice latte. It was awesome. Wanna see? Recipe below!

Recipe: Makes 2 servings
(adapted from several versions)

2 cups milk
3 tablespoons canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for garnish
1 cup strong brewed coffee
whipped cream
cinnamon, optional garnish

Combine milk, pumpkin, sugar in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until steaming. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice. Whisk the mixture until foamy. Transfer into two mugs, filling each only half full; top with coffee. Garnish with a dollop ow whipped cream and a dash of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon.

P.S. More Pumpkin love.
