Pumpkin Time

This weather sure does put me in the mood for some Fall favorites. I couldn’t wait go open a can of pumpkin puree. There are so many things to do with it.


I decided to make a pumpkin favorite, Pumpkin Latte! This is actually my first time to attempt it. I normally am just satisfied with a Starbucks Pumpkin Latte, but this time I wanted to find a way to make it at home and possibly make a healthier version of it. I think I succeeded! The first latte was not the best but the 2nd one was perfect!


I started out brewing some strong coffee. Make it stronger than what you would normally drink. Put about 2 tablespoons per cup.


While that is brewing make your pumpkin milk. Pull out all of your ingredients.


Make sure you put a heaping portion of pumpkin into your milk.


Mix all of your ingredients together over the stove top until warm.


Pour coffee in your cup then fill up the rest with your pumpkin milk.


You can top it with whip cream or I topped mine off with whipped almond milk. I added 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree and whipped for about 5 min with the hand mixer.




Pumpkin Latte

1 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk (or any kind of milk)

1/4 Heaping Cup Pumpkin Puree

1 Tsp Cinnamon

1/2 Tsp Vanilla

2 Tbsp Agave or honey

1/4 Tsp ground clove

1/4 Tsp Nutmeg

Brewed Coffee.


Heat all of your ingredients over the stove top. Pour coffee in cup and top the rest with the pumpkin milk. Top with whipped topping and  a sprinkle of cinnamon.


What is your favorite thing to do with Pumpkin Puree?
