Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte
Posted Oct 16th, 2017
The best part about making your own pumpkin spice latte is that you can use natural ingredients and real organic spices, instead of sugary pumpkin flavoring. A homemade pumpkin spice latte can mean real pumpkin purée with organic vanilla, maple syrup and cinnamon.
2 Tablespoons pumpkin purée
2 cups Clearly Organic Milk
1/2 teaspoon Clearly Organic Cinnamon
1-2 Tablespoons Clearly Organic Maple Syrup (depending on desired sweetness)
1 Tablespoon Clearly Organic Vanilla
1 cup strong brewed coffee, or 2 shots espresso
1/2 cup milk (for extra foam if desired)
In a saucepan over medium heat add pumpkin purée, milk, cinnamon, maple syrup and vanilla. Stir with a whisk continually. Heat contents until ingredients are evenly distributed and milk starts to foam slightly. Pour coffee evenly into two mugs. Top with milk and spice mixture. If you desire a warm frothy topping pour 1/2 cup milk into a mason jar, secure the lid and shake vigorously for 45 seconds. Then warm milk in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. Spoon desired amount of foam over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon.
