Pumpkin & Spice Lattes with whipped cream
Instead of hitting the drive-thru in the morning, whip together this take on the coffeehouse favorite. The nice thing about this simple recipe for Pumpkin & Spice Lattes with whipped cream, it doesn’t rely on a thick, artificially flavored syrup for great flavor. Instead, real pumpkin, fragrant spices, and sugar make this latte worth waking up to in the morning. And to make satisfying your morning jo fix easy, prepare the pumpkin and milk mixture in advance, then simply make and add espresso before walking out the door.
To intensify the flavors of the pumpkin and the spices, cook them with the sugar until it thickens.
Heat pumpkin purée, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice in a saucepan over medium until it thickens, about 5 minutes.
Whisk in milk and heat just until steaming. Stir in espresso and vanilla, then divide lattes among 4 cups.
Top lattes with whipped cream and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.
