Bubbling in the Cauldron: Homemade Maple Pumpkin Spice Latte's !

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte's
My Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Last week a good friend of mine posted a recipe for homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte's. 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 :) My guess is that this would be even more bewitching on a chilly autumn night with a warming jigger of brandy stirred into it,  a crackling fire and maybe a piece of pumpkin pie! 

Ingredients

 

3 Tbsp unpacked brown sugar   

 

2 tsp ground cinnamon   

 

3 Tbsp maple syrup   

 

2 Tbsp light whipping cream   

 

2/3 cup(s) canned pumpkin   

 

1 1/2 cup(s) black coffee   

 

1 1/2 cup Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Milk Alternative   

Instructions: Brew the coffee 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!
