Pumpkin Spiced Latte
  • 2 cups milk of your choice
  • 1/2 cup brewed hot coffee or espresso
  • 4 Tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • Whipped cream for garnish
In a saucepan, cook pumpkin puree and condensed milk over medium heat for 1 minute.
Add milk of your choice, vanilla extract, and all of the spices, whisk until frothy and is heated, about 4 minutes.
Pour 1/4 cup of hot espresso/coffee into the bottom of each mug, top with frothed milk and then add whipped cream.
  • You can use any milk that you like for this recipe, if you do not drink dairy than use almond milk or cashew milk.
  • You can make a larger batch of the pumpkin spice milk to have on hand so that when you need a little Fall "pick me up" it is ready for you to heat up, add the espresso/coffee and top with whipped cream.
  • If you like a more pronounced flavor amp up the spices, I always add extra cinnamon and nutmeg.

    This certainly sounds yummy, and I'm glad to be able to use almond milk since my husband is allergic to dairy; however, the sweetened condensed milk is dairy, so what could I use in its place?

    I drink one of these frozen every day in place of lunch. I use date syrup as a natural sweetener. So much better than the artificially flavored ones at the coffee shops! I am totally making a batch of this for a cooler weather treat! Many thanks!
