Pumpkin Spice Latte Ingredients
- 1 cup of nonfat milk
- 1 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
- 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup brewed black coffee or 1 shot of espresso
- 1 dash of ground nutmeg.
Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe Directions
Simply heat your milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and extract in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Allow everything to cook for 4-5 minutes, or until hot. Do not boil! You can tell if it’s ready when you see many small bubbles on the sides of the saucepan. Once this happens, remove the mixture from the heat and mix with a whisk until frothy. Next, pour coffee or espresso into a serving mug and add the milk mixture. End by topping your latte with as much nutmeg as you want.

And as a helpful tip, once you open that can of pumpkin puree and use what you need for the pumpkin spice latte, portion out the rest of the pumpkin puree by putting 1 Tbsp of the puree into each slot of an ice cube tray and freeze them. Once they are frozen, remove from the tray and put them in a freezer bag in the freezer. You won’t have to worry about storing the partially used can of puree.
