What You'll Need: pumpkin puree, milk, coffee, pumpkin spice and honey or brown sugar
I originally found this recipe on a blog, Love Veggies and Yoga, and have experimented with the recipe to find one I like best. Here it is! I used Hyde Park Spice + Herb Co. pumpkin pie spice stix, Fire Roasted Coffee and a local organic pumpkin from the organic delivery service.
-Mix one part pumpkin puree with two parts milk (or a little more pumpkin if you really like pumpkin). I made my puree from a pie pumpkin that was in the London organic deliveries. Just cut the top and bottom off the pumpkin, chop it in half, scoop out the guts, and brush the flesh with olive oil. Roast it cut side down in a baking dish at 350 for about 45min-1h 15min. You'll know its done when a fork goes right through it. Then just scoop out the flesh and puree it! If you want to buy pumpkin puree, I think that would work, too.
-So you've mixed your milk and pumpkin puree. Add pumpkin spice to taste. If you'd like it to be sweet, then I would definitely suggest adding honey or sugar now. At this point I usually use an aerolatte or whisk to make it nice and foamy.
-Pour as much of this mixture as you like over about half a mug of hot coffee. You might want to microwave the whole thing if you like it hot.
-Voila. And as a side note, the total for 2 pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks (tall) is $8.93. One pumpkin gave me enough puree for about 8 drinks. That's $36 in Starbucks.
