First day of Fall

Pumpkin Spice Latte

In honor of the first day of fall, 2011, here is a way to stop spending so much on those fancy coffee drinks as the weather turns chilly! These Pumpkin Spice Lattes are easy, inexpensive, and taste like autumn.

First, brew a shot of espresso (1.5 fluid ounces) or 1/4 cup of very strong coffee.
While that is brewing, place a small saucepan on the stove with 1 cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin puree, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons of white sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice (or you can make your own with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice or cloves, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg - Makes 1 teaspoon).
Warm this mixture on medium heat, whisking the whole time, until it is hot and frothy but not boiling.
Pour your espresso or coffee into a mug and add your pumpkin spiced milk.
You can top your Latte with whipped cream and cinnamon for the coffee shop style.

Enjoy and happy fall!
