a recipe and story from Angie Kat

Ahhhhhhhhh… Finally, Fall is here! 

Although, I’m still waiting for it to get cold enough to wear a sweater and some boots, as 90 degrees  is hardly the temperature for that….  :-/

Regardless, I will enjoy that it’s out of the triple digits and the nights and early mornings are absolutely beautiful! 

HOW TO WHIP UP A PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE  

(makes 2 servings)

xx

INGREDIENTS

2 Cups of Milk ( I love almond milk)
3 Tablespoons of organic Canned pumpkin  
3 Tablespoons of cane sugar
2 Tablespoons pure vanilla
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 Cup Strong Coffee ( you add more if you like, I like mine more coffee tasting then sweet so I add 3/4 c. coffee)
and of course whipped cream!

DIRECTIONS

1- Warm the milk, pumpkin & sugar in a saucepan, heat it up till it’s steaming hot. Remember to stir often so the milk doesnt burn in the pan.  
2 – With this step, you can do it either of two  ways, I use my emulsifier to blend it all together and make it foamy, or you can dump it in a blender  just be SUPER careful because it can explode all over because of the pressure from the heat/steam while blending it.  Trust me, I did  it and painted my whole kitchen in pumpkin spice, totally not fun!
ALSO, while you’re mixing add the Vanilla & pumpkin pie spice.
3- Put equal amounts of coffee in each cup, then equal amounts of the pumpkin latte mix in each cup. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of the pumpkin pie spice.
4- Say “Screw you over priced commercial coffee blood suckers!”  and ENJOY!!!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Once you make this you’re going to ask yourself why you’ve been going and paying like $5-6 for one of these with all kinds of weird additives in it and unnatural coloring.   This tastes quite a bit richer and you can take satisfaction that you’ve saved some bucks and you know everything that’s been put in it.
