- 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee
- 1/2 cup of milk (dairy or plant-based)
- 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon of sugar (adjust according to your preference)
- 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
- Whipped cream (optional)
- Cinnamon powder (for garnish)
1. Start by brewing a strong cup of coffee using your preferred method. If you have an espresso maker, go ahead and make a double shot.
2. While the coffee is brewing, heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
3. Add the pumpkin puree, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice to the saucepan with the milk. Whisk everything together until well combined and heated through.
4. Once the milk mixture is warm, remove it from the heat and use an immersion blender or whisk vigorously until frothy. This step will create that beautiful foam you see in coffee shop lattes.
5. Pour the brewed coffee into a large mug, then slowly pour the frothy milk mixture over it. Use a spoon to hold back the foam while pouring.
6. Now, for the finishing touch! Top your latte with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle some cinnamon powder on top. This step is optional but highly recommended for that extra indulgence.
