Pumpkin Pie Latte by Jeannie
Source of Recipe
me, but inspired by Starbucks
Okay so I was inspired. Inspired by Starbucks Spiced Pumpkin Latte. I love them, but hey, they are pricey, and who of us can daily afford such thing? Sheesh, not me that's for sure. So I got creative and came up with this recipe. Enjoy the reason for all seasons.
List of Ingredients
3 heaping tbsp. canned pumpkin
2 tbsp. Vanilla syrup
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
(You can also order Pumpkin Spice syrup from Monin, maybe even your local Starbucks will sell you some. They now sell the Valencia, M'mmmm!)
If so use 1 tbsp. of Pumpkin Spice Syrup
1 cup milk
1-2 shots espresso
See note: Vanilla flavored coffee cream
In a small saucepan, stir pumpkin puree into milk. Add vanilla syrup and pumpkin pie spice. Heat gently, continuing to stirring occasionally just until steaming and foam begins to appear.
Pour pumpking flavored milk into a tall mug and pour espresso over.
Top with whip cream and a dash of pumpkin pie spice.
Note: If you like it slightly sweeter; and I know I do, I add a wee bit of vanilla flavored coffee cream. If you like it less sweet, adjust to taste. No matter what though, ENJOY!
