Health & Wellness Recipes: Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Better than store-bought—cheaper, too. This pumpkin spice Latte actually uses pumpkin.
You make it with strong brewed coffee and whisked milk. You do not need any of the heavy-duty cafe equipment. Curl up to this on a cool fall morning. Enjoy!

1 cup water
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
½ cup canned pumpkin purée
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 cups strongly brewed coffee*
3 cups 1% low-fat milk*

Over low heat in a medium saucepan, add water, sugars, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Whisk and then let simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.

Brew coffee. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk milk vigorously until warm and foamy.

For each individual latte, mix 1 cup of coffee with 4 tablespoons of syrup until syrup is dissolved. Top with ½ cup of whisked milk.

Yield: 6 servings (or make a single cup). Serving size: 1 cup

Cook’s Notes: If making only one latte, brew 1 cup of coffee and use ½ cup of milk, and keep remaining syrup in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
