|I simply have an adoration|
for anything pumpkin, thus
the creation of this hot
and tasty beverage...
Prep. 5 Mins.
Pumpkin Spice Latte:
1 cup milk
1 heaping teaspoon dark brown sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (for recipe, click here: Sandra's Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend)
¼ cup hot espresso (or double-strength coffee)
---1 heaping tablespoon sweetened whipped cream
---A pinch pumpkin pie spice
Set out the blender on the counter. Begin brewing your hot espresso (or double-strength hot coffee.)
Meanwhile, heat the milk, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice in a 2-cup glass measuring cup in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. Add the hot milk mixture to the blender. For safety, remove center of lid, and cover the blender with a kitchen towel to prevent splashing, and puree until mixture becomes frothy, about 15 seconds or so.
Pour hot espresso into a large mug, and then pour hot milk mixture from blender on top of espresso, reserving some of the top froth to spoon over top of latte, and then add a heaping dollop of sweet whipped cream, and a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice. – Enjoy!
