Guys, I’m obsessed with holiday treats.
Breads, bagels and coffee are on the top of my lists. Is there a better time than fall/winter for a fantastic cup of coffee?
I didn’t think so.
Coffee as an after dinner treat? Yesssssssss. (And yep. It does make me feel like a grown-up now that I choose coffee rather than ice cream or wine for dessert.)
Mom made this treat last week.
Yes it was really good because mom made it, but actually – it’s just plan good – regardless.
It’s a pumpkin spice latte that you can make at home! Perfect. Glorious. Fall. Thanksgiving. Goodness.
(P.S. need another tasty sip for Thanksgiving? May I suggest spiced apple cider? There. I suggested it. Amazing.)
Pumpkin Spice Latte
You will need:
- 3 cups low-fat milk
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
In a saucepan, combine the milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until steaming. Pour the mixture into 5 cups, then top with freshly brewed coffee. Add whipped cream and cinnamon to top. There will be enough for five servings.
