Pumpkin Spice Latte

Just a quick little recipe to share that is oh-so-good!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

  • 2 C whole milk, preferably raw
  • 2-3 T roasted pumpkin or squash, pureed
  • 2-3 T maple syrup or raw honey
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • scant 1/8 t nutmeg
  • scant 1/8 t cloves
  • scant 1/8 t allspice
  • 1-2 shots of espresso (about ¼ cup) or ½ cup strong coffee
  • whipped cream sweetened with maple syrup (optional)
  1. Combine milk and pumpkin in a sauce pan. Whisk to blend thoroughly.  (I use my immersion blender to blend pumpkin and about 1/2 C milk so that it is totally combined and no lumps.)
  2. Add the spices and simmer until heated. 
  3. Add sweetener and vanilla extract. 
  4. Place the espresso or coffee in a cup.
  5. Add enough pumpkin mixture to fill the cup almost to the top.

  1. I love this recipe. It's great during the fall. Even if you don't have pumpkin, really any kind of winter squash is fine
