Pumpkin Latte Morning October 12, 2010

I was not bright eyed this morning and I struggled getting out of bed, especially because I had chemistry to do today for an online class. blech. So I decided to treat myself to a homemade pumpkin spice lattee I found on Mama Pea’s site. Much like yesterday’s post, this will be a compare and contrast of recipes.

I started with two strong cups of pumpkin spice coffee from Fresh Market

  • 1 c. milk She used non-dairy milk for the vegan version
  • 1 T. Hazelnut (or any flavor) creamer
  • 2 T. canned pumpkin
  • 1 T. Pumpkin Pie Spice (She used 1/2 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. ginger, 1/4 t. ground nutmeg – but I already have all those wrapped up in my pumpkin spice mix. YUM)
  • stevia to taste
    Quick note on stevia – I tried this non-caloric sweetener to see how it matched up to regular sugar; it doesn’t. I used to be a HUGE splenda fan but once I discovered that it was some sort of processed creation and no one really knows what it’s doing to your body, I weaned myself off and went back to nature’s natural sugar cane. Stevia’s website says it’s sugar from a plant extract… I’m not sure how much of it is processed but to me, it tastes like plant. So I’m not going to use it once I finish this box. I’ll take the extra calories please.
  • #1. Mix pumpkin, milk and spices all together and heat until almost boiling on the stove top. 

    #2. Pour mixture into a high speed blender.

    #3. Mix on HIGH speed and it should become a little frothy

    #5. Pour into coffee and voila!
