This morning as I was sitting in the air conditioning on this lovely October day, I had a craving for my favorite fall treat: a pumpkin spice latte. Unfortunately it's a work day, I'm wearing yoga pants and the tank top I slept in last night, I haven't showered yet (in ahem, how many days?), baby M is still sleeping, and S is at work. I can't exactly run out to Starbucks. So I decided to finally try something I've pinned. And the results are fab.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
serves 2, or 1 pumpkin spice latte obsessed
2 c. skim milk
2 T. canned pumpkin (100% pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix)
2 T. sugar
2 t. vanilla
1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice
3/4 c. strong brewed coffee
In a saucepan heat milk, pumpkin and sugar until hot, but not boiling. Stir in vanilla and pumpkin pie spice and whip with a wire whisk. You could whip in a blender for a few seconds to get the milk super frothy, but I did not. Pour coffee into two mugs (or one really large mug), add the pumpkin milk mixture and top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
