Along with many of you, I do love my morning cup of coffee (yes, okay, I sometimes have more than one...and I may have another later in the day too!) I have a few favorites in the flavored variety. Now that Fall
is almost here, I have to admit
to my weakness for Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Of course you can go directly to Starbucks for a fix...or, you can prepare your own with this recipe from those fabulous folks at Food Network!
Savor the warm spices of this seasonal coffee shop favorite in your very own kitchen (any time of year) and save a few bucks! A little pumpkin puree added to the warm milk gives the latte extra body.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons pure pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for sprinkling
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup hot espresso or strong brewed coffee
Sweetened whipped cream, for serving
Combine the milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla in a medium microwave safe bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and vent with a small hole. Microwave until the milk is hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk vigorously until the milk mixture is foamy, about 30 seconds.
Pour the espresso or coffee into a large mug and add the foamed milk. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
