Pumpkin Latte

Every now and then I stumble across a recipe that I think everyone should try. I might start sharing a few with you because, darn it, I want everyone to know what I mean when I say "it is soooo good!" It is a cold, cloudy, gray day in Wisconsin today which means it is the perfect day for a nice hot cup of something warm and delicious. I found this recipe and decided I had to give it a try.
2 cups milk (I used 1%)
2 T canned pumpkin
2T white sugar
2T vanilla (not a typo-use 2 tablespoons)
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup brewed espresso or 3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
Heat in a saucepan (stirring frequently) until warm (I like mine hot).
Garnish with whipped cream and cinnamon.
The drinks were so yummy. I invited my friend Julie over to have a latte with me and Grace took our picture... Now if I could just teach her to use some photo editing software to erase wrinkles and give me a fake tan...
Happy Saturday!


  1. I'll take Grace's picture taking skills any day if her pix will make my thighs look as slim as yours!!!!

    And that Latte looks Y.U.M. Avé and I will be right over...

  2. That sounds yummy! We are having 17 people over on Thursday, and I'm thinking that I might need to make some of these mid-afternoon!! And good job, Grace on the pics!

  3. YUMMY! I can't wait to have a Latte with you and Julie! xoxo
