Pumpkin Pie latte

Oh mylanta! I found an absolutely yummy recipe over at Livin Our Love Song earlier this week. Being a latte and pumpkin freak I had to try it. It was so yummy I inquired if I could share with you and was happily given permission. I know that some of y'all out there like your latte too so this is being shared with you in mind.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Pumpkin Pie Latte

1 heaping T. canned pumpkin
2 T. Vanilla syrup
1 t. Ginger Spice syrup (or sub 1/4 t. ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice)
1 cup milk
1-2 shots espresso (1/4 C. espresso or 1/2 C. strong brewed coffee)
To make a pumpkin latte at home: In a small saucepan, stir pumpkin puree into milk. Add syrup and cinnamon. Heat gently until steaming, stirring occasionally.
Blend on high for 20 second until foaming. Pour flavored milk into a tall glass and pour coffee over. Dust with ground pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg.Serves 1.

Thank you Ash for letting me share your recipe and for letting me use your picture!

That sounds so flippin' good!

It's my mission to hunt for canned pumpkin this weekend. I'm going to Milton Keynes tomorrow and they have an American shop, so I'll have a look there first. Debs said they might start having it in stock this time of year. Let's pray they do!

Boo, let me know if you find canned pumpkin over there. If not, I may just have to send a care package to you (provided it's allowed...I don't know custom stuff and the shipping isn't killer...which I doubt).

By the way, I used sugar free vanilla syrup, pumpkin spice instead of the ginger syrup and 1% milk instead of regular. Made it South beach friendly!

i found one can, but it was dented and didn't want to spend $4 on a dented can of pumpkin, ya know. i asked the lady if they would get more in and she said maybe but it wouldn't be for 3 more weeks. bugger!
also, i realized they don't even have pumpkin pie spice over here! how am i ever going to survive autumn???!!!
