Homemade Pumpkin Spice Air Roasted Coffee
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
- 2 tablespoons pure pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey (adjust to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves)
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of LOVEz air roasted brewed full bodied coffee or espresso. (I suggest LOVEz Monsoon Malabar or Espresso)
- Whipped cream (optional, for topping)
- Ground cinnamon (optional, for garnish)
In a small saucepan, heat the almond milk and pumpkin puree over low heat. Stir continuously to blend them together. Do not bring it to a boil; just heat until it's hot but not scalding.
Add the maple syrup (or honey), pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract to the milk mixture. Continue to stir, making sure all the ingredients are well combined.
In a separate container, brew a half-cup of full bodied coffee.
Pour the brewed coffee into a large coffee mug.
Carefully pour the pumpkin-spiced milk mixture over the coffee, using a fine-mesh strainer if needed to catch any undissolved pumpkin bits.
Stir the latte to combine all the flavors.
If desired, top your pumpkin spice latte with a dollop of whipped cream* and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon.
