Autumn is that time of year when you can stand in front of mirror and say ‘pumpkin spice latte’ three times, then a white girl appears and tells you all the things she loves about fall.
OR you can just enjoy a Flaming Marshmallow pumpkin spice latte of your own creation! Impress colleagues, make friends and influence people with your wicked pumpkin spice skills.
What you Need
- 1/2 cup hot brewed coffee
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin (this is not the pumpkin pie mix, but the pureed pumpkin)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
In a small pot, heat the milk, the sugar, the pumpkin until hot but not boiling. Take the pot off the stove and add the pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and the coffee.
Makes 2 large cups.
Wanna ramp up the yum? Top with whipped cream and a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice or a cinnamon stick.
