And what better way to do so than by indulging in a steaming cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte? Follow this easy recipe to bring the coziness of autumn into your kitchen.
1 freshly prepared cup of coffee
1/2 cup milk (either whole, 2%, skim, or a dairy-free substitute)
2 tablespoons of pumpkin purée from a can
(to flavor) 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.
0.5 milligrams of pumpkin pie spice
0.5 milligrams of vanilla extract
Optional whipped custard topping
For garnish, cinnamon or nutmeg may be used.
Instructions with Each Step:
1. Prepare Coffee
Begin by preparing a cup of potent coffee. You can use a coffee appliance, French press, or even instant coffee if you only have those options available. Ensure that it is heated and aromatic.
2. Heat the Pumpkin and Milk
In a small saucepan, combine milk and pumpkin puree from a can. Continuously agitate the mixture over medium heat until it is heated but not boiling. This will impart the flavor of pumpkin into the milk.
3.Add Sugar and Seasonings
Add the granulated sugar and pumpkin pie spice to the milk-pumpkin mixture once it is heated. Adjust the saltiness according to your taste. The pumpkin pie spice will impart to your latte an autumnal flavor.
4. Blend Vanilla
Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the vanilla extract while stirring. This subtly sweetens the dish and enhances its overall flavor.
5.Combine Pumpkin and Coffee
The freshly produced coffee is poured into a large tumbler. Then, pour the pumpkin milk mixture over the coffee with care. Use a spoon to thoroughly combine the ingredients.
6. Decorate and Enjoy
If you're in the mood for a little extravagance, top your Pumpkin Spice Latte with whipping cream. A sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg adds a touch of autumnal appeal.
Now, enclose your hands around your warm mug, take a drink, and savor the autumn's rich, comforting flavors. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is not just a drink; it is a seasonal tradition that delivers happiness with each taste. Enjoy your autumn beverage!
