  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • ½ tsp Ginger, ground
  • ¼ tsp Cloves, ground
  • ½ cup Espresso or Strong Coffee
Roasting the pumpkin
Pre heat the oven to 200°C/400°F
Peel the squash and cut it into small dices
Place it flat on a tray and bake it in the oven for 45 mins or until soft
Once you can poke it with a knife without any resistance, you can remove the tray from the oven
In a pot over medium heat, pour the milk and add all the spices, sugar and roasted pumpkin (or pumpkin purée)
Once it comes to a boil, turn the heat off
Using a hand blender, blitz it until it is smooth with no pumpkin chunks
Pour the strongly brewed coffee or espresso into a mug and then pour the milk mixture over it
Finish it with whipped cream, if wanted and enjoy!
  • Cut the squash into small dices so it doesn't take too long too cook
  • Keep and eye on the squash when baking it so it doesn't burn or caramelizes too much
  • Serve it hot or add some ice cubes for a "Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte" version
