Experimenting with unique flavors of coffee is my favorite hobby. I am sharing this recipe to save you from drinking expensive drinks from coffee shops. As soon as the season of pumpkin-spice latte hits, everyone runs toward coffee shops to buy it. I love spice lattes from coffee shops and they taste so good but they are not necessarily the healthiest choice.
Also, if you think about the price, you’ll realize you’re spending a lot of money if you buy spice latte regularly. All the ingredients used in this recipe are quite affordable and once you start making it at home, you’ll be saving a lot of money.
Pumpkin is my family’s favorite fruit and I am always trying new recipes with it. It is a very healthy addition to our diets. It is highly nutritious and packed with vitamins. It boosts our immunity, protects eyesight and it is also a rich source of fiber.
I remember my dad making special desserts out of the pumpkin, honey, and other ingredients. He taught me a version of pumpkin-spice tea which I modified into a perfect latte for all of you.
So here is a super simple and easy-to-make recipe of perfect pumpkin spice latte. In this recipe, I used honey instead of sugar or maple syrup. My personal experience tells me that honey infuses well with pumpkin puree. They taste so much better than maple syrup. But I’ll leave you to judge that. You can add maple syrup if you like. You can also substitute honey with any other sweetener.
For pumpkin flavor, I added freshly made pumpkin puree. It gives a strong frothy taste to the latte. But you can also use canned puree. Spices used were ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg to give that extra kick to the flavor. Other spices like clove and cardamom can also be used. This just depends on your palate. Mine has refined during the passing years. I used to be such a picky eater. But not anymore! You can also use any type of milk you want.
As I said, the recipe is simple and takes no extra time. You’ll need to heat milk at medium flame and add spices and pumpkin puree. Stir for a minute until everything is combined. Now add honey and heat the mixture until it starts to bubble. Then add coffee, stir, and voila!
Here are step-by-step instructions on how you can make this super easy and perfect pumpkin spice latte:
Heat milk in a container.
Add pumpkin puree and spices. Stir well.
Add honey and heat until the mixture starts to boil.
Add freshly brewed coffee to the mixture and stir properly.
Enjoy your perfect Pumpkin Spice Latte!
