Ingredients

Instructions

  • Brew coffee and set aside.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, stir the pumpkin, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice until combined.  Slowly whisk in the almond milk.  Bring the mixture to a low simmer, stirring occasionally and remove from heat.  Stir in vanilla extract.
  • Transfer the mixture to a blender and pulse several times until foamy and frothy.  You may also use a hand-held immersion blender instead.
  • Add the milk mixture to your hot coffee.  You may want to use a spoon to gently hold back the frothy top layer while pouring.  Top your latte with the remaining froth.
  • Top with a dollop of homemade whipped coconut cream and sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice.

Notes

Recipe Notes/Suggestions:
No Almond Milk:  Use coconut milk instead.
No Blender:  Whisk vigorously by hand when the milk mixture starts to simmer on the stove.  FYI, this will not create the same froth as a blender or immersion blender but is still tasty!
Pumpkin Lover:  Add an extra 1 tbsp of pureed pumpkin per serving.
Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice:  Mix 1/4 cup ground cinnamon, 4 tsp ground nutmeg, 4 tsp ground ginger and 1 tbsp ground allspice.  Store in an air-tight container.
Caffeine Free:  Replace coffee with additional almond milk.
