Pumpkin Pie Latte
What is more inviting that spice and warmth in a cup? This team blend is a seasonal perk that will make your espresso pot beam. Usually I get my Pumpkin Latte from Montreal's David's Tea but they often run out! Shoot. So I had to invent my own (although in season, you can order it from www.DavidsTea.com). If you have a steamer for the milk, that’s super. If not, just simmer the milk and half and half to simmering, so that it shivers with foam. Pumpkin Pie spices are available in the spice section of most supermarkets or make your own, which will guarantee you a pungent, fresh spice mixture to enhance all your baking.
2 shots espresso (1/4 cup) or ½ cup strong coffee
1/2 cup half-and-half or light cream, steamed
½ cup milk, steamed
1-2 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree, optional
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice*
* I buy my Pumpkin Pie Spices from The Spice House or make my own. The recipe is in BB Recipe Archives.
In a saucepan, heat coffee, half-and-half and milk to almost boiling, and stir in pumpkin, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. Whisk well and pour into a heated latte cup (ceramic or glass).
Serve immediately, Makes one cup; recipe doubles or triples as required.
