Fall is here and if you are you a big fan of the PSL like I am, then you will love this amazing recipe! This Pumpkin Spice Latte is simple, healthier and so yummy!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Tablespoons 100% pumpkin puree
  • slightly rounded 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar (or more or less)
  • 1 cup milk, any kind (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 shot espresso OR 1/4 cup strongly brewed coffee
  • whipped cream or coconut cream for topping, optional

DIRECTIONS:

Add pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice to a small saucepan over medium high heat. Stir with a spatula until very fragrant and bubbly, 30 seconds – 1 minute, then add sugar and stir until smooth and bubbly, another 30 seconds. Whisk in milk then add vanilla and stir until drink is hot, 2-3 minutes.

Brew espresso or coffee into a mug (or omit to keep this kid-friendly) then strain milk mixture into the mug and serve. The straining step is optional but it catches any larger pieces of pumpkin and any chalky spices.
