Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

We have coffee every afternoon. It's a habit that we got into while staying with friends in France.  We go to a couple of our favorite coffee shops. Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Gingerbread Lattes are out now and they're really good. They're really expensive too.
This afternoon I made this recipe and it's delicious. So we can start saving money and make our own Fall Coffee drinks every afternoon. Tomorrow I'll make the Gingerbread Spice mixture.  Follow the instructions exactly and you'll have a delicious homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte!
I have other Latte recipes on the blot and one of them that we make every year during the Holidays is made in a Crock Pot. It makes 14 cups.
I double the recipe for two of us.

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte:

1 C Whole Milk
2 TBS Pumpkin Puree
1 TBS Granulated Sugar
1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice + additional for garnish.
1/4 tsp Vanilla
1/4 C Hot Espresso Coffee ( I use instant Medaglia d'Oro Espresso Coffee if I'm too lazy to use the Espresso Machine)

In a glass bowl or measuring cup:
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Whisk well.
Heat in  a microwave safe bowl covered with plastic wrap and vent with a small hole.
Heat 1 - 2 minutes.
Whisk vigorously until the milk is foamy, 30 seconds.
Add Espresso Coffee to a Coffee Mug, add foamed milk, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of Pumpkin Pie Spice.

Peace in the Kitchen!
