Spiced Pumpkin Latte

Marisa Mariella
When the chill in the air announces the beginning of winter, I start craving warming spices and pumpkins! I love keeping a batch of this spiced pumpkin puree in the fridge to transform my everyday latte into a glorious treat! Why spend money on artificially-flavoured syrups when the real thing is so much tastier!

Ingredients
  

Pumpkin Spice Puree

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • ½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp Whipped Cream

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

  • 8 oz Hot coffee
  • 2 oz Hot milk
  • 1 tbsp Pumpkin Spice Puree
  • cup Brown sugar

Instructions
 

Spiced Pumpkin Purée

  • Place the pumpkin puée in a high speed blender and whiz for a minute to make it creamier. (This step is optional).
    In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together until well incorporated. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.
  • In a heat-proof measuring cup, pour hot coffee, adding hot milk to your preference. Stir in a tablespoon of the spiced pumpkin puree and whisk vigorously. Pour in a mug and serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Serve immediately.

Notes

Experiment with the ratio of hot liquid to pumpkin purée.
Replace the milk with a non-dairy substitute.
For something really special, consider topping with some whipped cream.
