Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte (GF and easily vegan)

Submitted by: MJROBB

Introduction

In fall/winter lots of people like Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte. Here's a healthier, make at home, wicked tasty version. The ingredients are as I make it, play around with the ratios to make it the way you like it. I use 1% milk because that's what I buy, but you can use anything from half and half to soy or rice milk.

Ingredients

    Strong coffee
    1/3 cup canned pumpkin - make sure you use plain canned pumpkin NOT "pumpkin pie filling" in a can
    1 cup milk, any type you prefer
    1.5 tsp pumpkin pie spice
    0.5 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 tsp brown sugar (or other sweetener of your choice: maple syrup, agave nectar, stevia, etc)

Directions

Make a pot of STRONG coffee. While that's brewing combine the rest of the ingredients until smooth. I use a blender, a bowl and a whisk would work well also. Warm up the pumpkin milk mixture (1.5 minutes in the microwave with a quick stir in the middle works for me). Pour coffee in a mug and add pumpkin milk mix; I like 2 parts coffee to 1 part pumpkin milk, although a coworker prefers a 1:1 ratio.

Enjoy!
