Spiced Pumpkin Latte
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!

- 1 cup canned pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 1 tsp cinnamon

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

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.
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.
