I don’t know where you are…but here in the NorthEast it has been raining ALL DAY LONG! I gotta admit..I love it! It’s the perfect day for a Pumpkin Spice Latte..and since I don’t feel like leaving the house, I was happy to find this recipe at Recipe Zaar. It is awesome! I used Starbucks Espresso (obviously) Indulgence. Enjoy!
1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
1 cup milk
1/2 tablespoon light brown sugar (packed and leveled)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups strong coffee (brewed using 2 tbs per 1 cup of water)
4 tablespoons Coffee-mate
4-8 teaspoons granulated sugar
In a blender puree the milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, brown sugar and vanilla.
Pour into a small saucepan and cook over low heat until the milk is warm and begins to froth slightly. (About 4-5 minutes.) Remove from heat.
For each serving:
Pour 1/2 cup of the pumpkin mixture into your coffee mug.
Add 2 generous tablespoons of Coffeemate creamer.
Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, then add 1 cup of brewed coffee.
Add 2 to 4 teaspoons of sugar (depending on how sweet you like your drink, I added 3 tsps.).
Top off with a touch more ‘pumpkin milk’ then cover with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg.
