Pumpkin Spice Latte
2 tbls. canned pumpkin puree
2 tbls sugar or equivalent sugar substitute
1 cup milk or 1 cup cashew milk (35 calories per eight ounces)
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup brewed espresso or double-strength coffee
Pumpkin Spice Latte Preparation:
First of all, to make very strong coffee, the rule of thumb is more coffee less water. This works if you have a French press, not so well if you have a drip machine.
One trick when working with a coffee maker is to pull the pot out from under the filter basket (only if you have the type of machine that stops dripping when you do this!) and let the hot water steep in the coffee filter for about two minutes.
Then return the pot to the burner under the filter and let the stronger coffee flow in. Once you’ve got your coffee ready to go, whisk together in a small saucepan, over medium heat, the pumpkin, vanilla, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and milk. Whisk constantly until frothy. Pour the coffee into a mug and pour the pumpkin spiced milk over it. Cheers.
