Yields 1 Serving
2 fl oz brewed espresso or 4 fl oz strong coffee
6 fl oz. unsweetened milk of choice.
2 Tbsp pumpkin puree
¼ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp almond extract
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1-2 tsp stevia or monkfruit sweetener
Low sugar whipped cream optional
Additional ground cinnamon for topping optional
If you have an espresso maker
Brew a shot of espresso per your machine’s instructions into a large coffee cup. If you have a standard coffee pot
Brew 4 fl oz of coffee as you normally would into a large coffee cup, except use double the amount of coffee grounds. (For example, if you typically use 2 Tbsp of coffee to brew a cup, use 4 Tbsp here.)
While your espresso or coffee brews:
Add your milk to a microwave safe 16 fl oz or larger glass cup or jar. Heat the milk in the microwave for 90 seconds.
Once heated, add the pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, almond extract, ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon, and sweetener to the milk. Using a milk frother, froth the milk until it is almost double in volume.
Pour your frothed milk mixture into the brewed espresso or coffee. Top with whipped cream and some additional cinnamon and enjoy!
