Pumpkin Spice Latte

Oh fall! It’s that time of the year when the crisp weather, the warm colors, and the falling leaves give you the perfect opportunity to bundle up in front of a movie (or with a great book) and drink a hot and comforting beverage. Am I right?

If you’re like me, you also love the harmonious flavors that come with the fall, like the delicious smell and taste of pumpkin and pumpkin spice.

Pumpkin pie is no longer the only shining star of November. With all the creative home cooks out there, there are hundreds of pumpkin-anything recipes — pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin butter, pumpkin chilli, pumpkin donuts, you name it! There’s everything and anything to satisfy all our fall cravings.

So I couldn’t let November pass by without sharing my own pumpkin recipe with you!

This Pumpkin Spice Latte is delicious and nutritious, did I mention filling too? This autumn latte will rock your socks off and will keep you warm and your belly full. Go ahead and give it a try!

 


Pumpkin Spice Latte
Preparation time: 20 minutes

Pumpkin spice syrup — makes 1¾ cups syrup
1 cups water
1/2 cups maple syrup
4 cinnamon sticks or 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground nutmeg
4 Tbsp canned pumpkin

Pumpkin Spice Latte
1 shot of espresso or 4 tbsp very strongly brewed coffee
1 cup nut milk, hot (I use almond or cashew milk)
3 tbsp pumpkin spice syrup or to taste
Coconut whipped cream (optional)

1. To make the syrup, in a small pot whisk together all of the syrup ingredients and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Do not allow mixture to come to a boil. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes.

2. Strain syrup through cheesecloth or veggie bag into an appropriate size mason jar or bottle of your choice. Keep syrup in the fridge. It will last at least 2 weeks.

3. To make the latte, combine the espresso shot or brewed coffee with the very hot nut milk and stir in the pumpkin spice syrup. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with ground cinnamon, if you’d like.

    I just baked pumpkin pie a couple of weeks ago. I use fresh pumpkin and froze some leftovers. Now I know what to do with them! Thanks, it sounds delicious.
