Wake Up With Flavours Of Fall

You know that Fall is here when Starbucks brings back the Pumpkin Spice Latte. and ladies & gentlemen, it's back!

Now if you can't always justify buying a $6 cup of coffee, but love the pumpkin spice latte like I do, here's a recipe that you can make for yourself at home.


Pumpkin Spice Lattes

6 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
1 Tbsp. heavy cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. ginger
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. splenda (or desired sweetener)
6 ounces milk
12 ounces strong coffee or espresso
additional milk, for frothing (if desired)
additional cinnamon (for sprinkling on top, if desired) 

In a small food processor, combine pumpkin puree, heavy cream, vanilla extract, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, splenda, and milk.  Pulse until smooth.  Evenly divide mixture between two mugs.  Heat in the microwave until hot (about a minute).  Add 6 ounces of coffee or espresso to each mug.

(Optional) Heat a few Tablespoons of milk in the microwave and use a hand-held frother (or an espresso machine attachment) to froth the milk.  Pour on top of your lattes and swirl.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.

(Serves 2). 


Take Care,
