Hello everyone, My daughter sent me this recipe for Pumpkin latte an let me tell you its good. It's a nice treat and good source of calcium. I made a quart instead of 2 cups using skim milk, real sugar, and instant decaf coffee that i mixed in the pot. I like cinnamon so i added some of that too. I had a cup hot and put the rest in the fridge for later. I think it would be just as good cold. take care..phyllis
Just Like Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte
Makes 1-2 servings
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute Ė adjust to taste
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee (or 1/4 cup of espresso if you have an espresso machine)
In a saucepan stir together milk, pumpkin and sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and pumpkin pie spice, transfer to a blender and process for 15 seconds or until foamy. I donít usually bother with the blender and just whip the mixture really well with a wire whisk.
Pour into a large mug or two mugs if you decide to share. Add the coffee or espresso on top.
To dress it up top with whipped cream and sprinkling of spice.
