pumpkin spice latte...

It's monday morning and I cannot tell a lie... the day has been nothing short of a struggle thus far. So in honor of my love for autumn and my need for caffeine at this struggling moment in time, here is an amazing recipe for a pumpkin spiced latte from the Rocky Mountain Lodge and Cabins...

pumpkin spiced latte...

  • 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree (or 1 tsp. Torani Pumpkin Spice Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar (or 1 Tbsp packed brown sugar) 
  • 1 cup milk (or half and half for a richer latte) 
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (optional if you're using syrup) 
  • 1-2 shots brewed espresso (or 1/2 cup STRONG brewed coffee) 
  • Whipped Cream (optional) 
  • nutmeg 
  • cinnamon sticks (for garnish) 


1. Brew your espresso. 
2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, blend together the pumpkin, vanilla, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and milk with a stick blender, or whisk vigorously by hand. Warm over medium heat, beating constantly, until hot and frothy. Do not bring to a boil. 
3. Pour the espresso into a mug and pour the pumpkin spiced milk over it. 
4. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired. Garnish with cinnamon sticks.
