Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Latte

You know this had to happen. Ever since Starbucks stopped selling pumpkin spice lattes (because fall can't last forever) I have been craving them. They could brighten my day like nothing else, no matter what was going on. I don't know what they put in it, but it could cheer me up in a flash.







I don't know why I didn't think about actually making one myself earlier! It was too easy, and costs waayy less. But I know, when fall rolls around... I will still be in those long lineups at Starbucks for something warm...


Makes 1 drink
What you'll need:

-1/4 cup canned pumpkin
-1 cup milk
-1 tablespoon white sugar
-pinch of cinnamon
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1/4 cup strong brewed coffee
+whipped cream and grated nutmeg to top


Directions

    1.   Brew at least 1/4 cup strong coffee.
    2.   Heat the milk in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add the pumpkin, sugar and cinnamon. Whisk together, but do not let it come to a boil. Remove when the mixture reached the desired temperature.
    2.   Pour the 1/4 cup of coffee in a mug and pour the pumpkin mixture on top. Top with whipped cream and grate some nutmeg on top.
