Seasonal specialty coffees are some of my favorite things. Pumpkin flavored anything is also high on my life list. So a pumpkin latte recipe really takes the cake.

Here’s a recipe for one I found along with several other coffee drink recipes.

I’ve been wanting to try this recipe because it will give me a reason to try freezing extra pumpkin puree in ice cube trays. One thawed pumpkin cube should do a batch for two people.

   

1 heaping T. canned pumpkin

2 T. vanilla syrup

1 t. ginger spice syrup (or sub 1/4 t. ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice)

1 cup milk

1-2 shots espresso (1/4 C. espresso or 1/2 C. strong brewed coffee)

To make a pumpkin latte at home: In a small saucepan, stir pumpkin puree into milk. Add syrup and cinnamon. Heat gently until steaming, stirring occasionally.

Blend on high for 20 second until foaming. Pour flavored milk into a tall glass and pour coffee over. Dust with ground pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg.

Serves 1.

I love this stuff! If you have a different pumpkin latte recipe, please feel free to share your results or information. Don’t you think it would be scrumptious with whipped cream on top?
