images.jpgI normally avoid flavored coffee drinks, yet…around the holidays, it just seems right. Since Halloween kicks off the holiday season (for me, at least), I’ve started posting several coffee recipes here, and will have more in the coming months. Of course, one recipe that everyone’s looking for this time of year is one for a Pumpkin Latte! And so, without further ado, here’s one I found on about.com:

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbs canned pumpkin
  • 2 tbs vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon, ground
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup strong coffee, or 1/4 cup espresso
  • Instructions:

    In a saucepan, heat milk and pumpkin until steaming. Stir in vanilla and cinnamon. Put mixture in a blender, and blend for 15-20 seconds until thick and foamy. Pour into tall glass, then add coffee (or espresso). Top with a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice or ground nutmeg.
