One of my favorite coffee drinks always has been and always will be a pumpkin spice latte, especially in the fall. It’s an amazing mix of coffee, milk, and the mouth-watering flavor of pumpkin pie. Yum!
Place the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and a pinch of black pepper in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes, constantly stirring, until hot and fragrant.
Add the sugar and stir until the mixture combines into a syrup consistency.
Whisk in the milk and vanilla and cook until warmed, stirring often.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and transfer the mixture to a blender, mixing until combined and frothy.
Divide the coffee between 2 mugs. Add the frothed pumpkin mixture, then top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
You can triple or quadruple the pumpkin puree, spice, and black pepper mix and freeze 1 1/2 tablespoons in each well of an ice cube tray. Then, when you crave the steamy goodness of pumpkin spice latte, heat one cube of spice mix per cup of milk in a saucepan, and proceed with the recipe.
