For the Pumpkin Spice Mix:
For the Latte:
1. Prepare the Pumpkin Spice Mix (5 minutes):
In a small saucepan, combine the canned pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, sugar, and water.
Heat over low-medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is well combined and slightly heated. This should take about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool for a moment.
2. Brew Coffee (5 minutes):
While your pumpkin spice mix is cooling, brew your coffee or espresso. You can use a French press, drip coffee maker, or espresso machine.
3. Froth Milk (3 minutes):
In a separate saucepan or using a microwave, heat the milk (and heavy cream, if desired) until hot but not boiling. Be careful not to scorch it.
Use a milk frother or whisk vigorously to froth the milk until it's nice and foamy.
4. Combine Ingredients (2 minutes):
In each serving mug, add 1 tablespoon of the prepared pumpkin spice mix.
Pour hot brewed coffee or espresso over the spice mix and stir well to combine.
Stir in the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Top with the frothed milk, holding back the foam with a spoon to let the milk flow first.
5. Garnish and Serve (up to 2 minutes):
If desired, add a dollop of whipped cream on top of your latte.
Drizzle caramel sauce over the whipped cream.
Finish with a pinch of ground cinnamon or nutmeg for a festive touch.
Grab your favorite cozy blanket, sit by the window, and sip on this delightful fall-inspired Pumpkin Spice Latte. It's the perfect companion for crisp autumn mornings or a relaxing afternoon treat.
