    Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

    “A cup of coffee, home made, that comes to you dark as a hazel-eye, but changes to a golden bronze as you temper it with cream…such a cup of coffee is a match for twenty blue devils and will exorcise them all.” – H. W. Beecher
    I created this recipe back in 2006 when I was still in graduate school and Starbucks was a constant, if expensive, companion. Five years later this is still one of my favorite Autumn beverages. Flavored with fresh nutmeg, ground cloves and brown sugar, I used to drink it while reading a book or dawdling at the computer. Nowadays, I pour it in a hot cup and drink it one-handed while putting train tracks together.
    Pumpkin Spice Latte (My Recipe)


    • Ingredients: Makes 2 servings
    • 1 level tablespoon pumpkin puree (canned)
    • 1 cup milk (whole if you dare!)
    • 1/2 tablespoon light brown sugar (packed and leveled)
    • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/8 tsp nutmeg (+ a pinch for dusting later)
    • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
    • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
    • 2 cups strong coffee (brewed using 2 tbs per 1 cup of water)
      You can also use a shot or two of espresso instead of coffee.
    • 4 tablespoons half-and-half
    • Sugar to taste
    • Whipped cream

    Directions

    Begin brewing coffee.
    In a blender puree the milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, brown sugar and vanilla. Pour into a small saucepan and cook over low heat until the milk is warm and begins to froth slightly. (About 4-5 minutes.) Remove from heat.
    For each serving: Pour 1/2 cup of the pumpkin mixture into your coffee mug. Add 2 generous tablespoons of half-and-half. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, then add 1 cup of brewed coffee. Top it off with a touch more ‘pumpkin milk,’ add sugar to taste, then cover with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg.

    I don't drink coffee, I love the thought of pumpkin, but can't stand the taste. So this really isn't for me.

    I adore pumpkin and I adore coffee. Pumpkin lattes just add to making fall my favorite season.

    For the pumpkin obsessed, a low fat, low calorie spiced latte you can make yourself. October is my birthday month and one of my favorite treats this time of year is Starbucks' Pumpkin Spiced Latte. What a great way to start your morning!

    Gag. This sounds absolutely revolting.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
