makes 1-2 servings
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute - you can halve this amount
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1-2 shots espresso (about 1/4 cup of espresso or 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee
if you don't have an espresso machine.)
In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin and sugar and cook on medium heat, stirring until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice, transfer to a blender
and process for 15 seconds until foamy. If you don't have a blender, don't worry
about it - just whisk the mixture really well with a wire whisk.
Pour into a large mug or two mugs. Add the espresso on top.
Optional: Top with whipped cream and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, or cinnamon on top.
