Pumpkin Spice Latte

on November 6, 2011 - 8:38am

I did a quick version of this using:

  • 1 tablespoon premade pumpkin pie fillng
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract.

Add pumpkin pie filling to milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk. Heat until steaming.

Remove from heat and add vanilla.

Add to coffee.

The original recipe is from who uses pureed pumpkin as follows:


2 cups milk
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin (NOT pie filling)
2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute - you can halve this amount
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (generally a mix of ginger, clove, nutmeg & cinnamon)
1-2 shots espresso (about 1/4 cup of espresso or 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee if you don't have an espresso machine.)
In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin and sugar and cook on medium heat, stirring, until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice, transfer to a blender and process for 15 seconds until foamy. If you don't have a blender, don't worry about it - just whisk the mixture really well with a wire whisk.
Pour into a large mug or two mugs. Add the espresso on top.
Optional: Top with whipped cream and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, or cinnamon on top.
