Servings…Veronica’s Pumpkin Spice Latte

Servings…Veronica’s Pumpkin Spice Latte


It’s fall and all things pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin scones, and my personal favorite pumpkin spice lattes. Here’s my recipe…be careful taking the bowl out of the microwave. The steam escapes under the plate.


1 cup milk (1/2 and 1/2 for the best taste, skim for less calories)

2 tablespoons pumpkin puree (the stuff from a can works way better than trying to get a whole pumpkin to the perfect consistency)

1/2 cup hot espresso (no espresso? No problem-use really strong coffee)
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whipped cream.
Add the milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, spice, and vanilla in a medium bowl, cover the bowl with a microwave safe plate that covers it. Microwave 1 to 2 minutes until the mix is hot. (Be careful taking the bowl out of the microwave. The steam escapes under the plate.) Whisk the contents until it is foamy.

Pour the espresso into a large mug. Add the foamed milk with a light touch to keep it floating. Cover with as much whipped cream as you can handle.



  1. Kate Forest says:

    I really don’t like pumpkin anything. But give me the coffee and whipped cream, I’m good.

  2. YUM!

  3. I’m with Kate on the pumpkin spice thing, but I have to say this looks good

  4. I love pumpkin, but I’m definitely a seasonal person.

  5. And now I need to go to Starbucks (because no way am I going to try and flub this up in my kitchen.)
