Herban Kitchen & Stillroom ~ Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte's


Last week a good friend of mine posted a recipe for a homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte . 
While fairly intriguing, the recipe had a bit too much white sugar in it for my liking. However, my husband loves Starbucks Pumpkin Latte's and looks forward to them all year, so I was determined to take a stab at creating one that might be a wee bit healthier.  
This is the result and judging from his truly satisfied expression I succeeded! Happy Husband..Happy Life..Happy Life..Happy Wife! 
This is even more luscious on a chilly autumn night with a warming jigger of single malt stirred into it (nothing too peaty) , a crackling fire and a piece of pumpkin pie! 

3 Tbsp honey syrup  
2 tsp ground cinnamon   
3 Tbsp maple syrup   
2/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon of unsalted butter   
2/3 cup(s) canned pumpkin   
3 cup(s) black coffee or strong Chai Tea  
1 & 1/2 cups of nut milk

For the evening a wee dram of single malt, something a bit sweet like Macallan, Glenfiddich or Glenmorangie!  

Instructions: Brew the coffee/tea and in a saucepan,  whisk together
the other ingredients.
Heat until boiling and stir gently.
Pour the heated milk, pumpkin and spice mixture into a vitamix or blender along with the coffee.
Blend until smooth and pour into mugs.
Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy!
