Pumpkin Spice Lattes With Real Pumpkin

18 August 2013

Lattes are just one of those indulgences that are hard to resist, whether you're in need of a morning perk or a pick me up mid afternoon, lattes are everything and more. I love a perfection foamy milk, sweet, coffee ratio and even have taken a stab at playing with flavors, like chai (seen here). Most recently I've been gearing up for fall and stocked up on some pumpkin because it's really never too early for all things pumpkin spice. It's delightful, and you know it. So I opted to play yet again, and found myself making my typical morning brew into something that is totally fall worthy.

Combine Pumpkin, Milk, Spices, Extract and Honey in a saucepan and whisk on medium heat until thoroughly combined and heated. You may only get a little 'froth' due to the heavy nature of the pumpkin. 
Slowly pour into brewed coffee. Top with cinnamon, or if you're really indulging, whipped cream.

Enjoy.
