Here at Spice Kitchen, we get super-excited about autumn. It's the time of year when everyone starts craving spiced-up warming foods and comforting drinks. Spiced Pumpkin Latte has become THE staple drink for the season! 🍁
And we can't wait to share with you our go-to recipe for the PERFECT autumnal drink...
YOU WILL NEED
For the spice blend
- 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 small pumpkin
- Your favourite milk – dairy or non dairy work equally well
- Vanilla extract
- Sugar to taste
- 1 shot of your favourite espresso
- Whole cinnamon stick
- Whipped or squirty cream
- Cocoa powder for dusting
1. Bake and puree your pumpkin!
The first step is to make the pumpkin puree. First, take a sharp knife, remove the skin, deseed and then cut your pumpkin into large chunks. Place onto a baking tray into your preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes at 190°C. Allow to cool a little and then blend until smooth.
2. Make your spice blend
As you wait for your pumpkin to bake, make your spice blend.
The perfect blend is as follows - 4 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of ground ginger, 1 teaspoon of ground cloves, and 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg.
3. Warm the milk
In a non stick saucepan, gently warm 2 mugs of milk
4. Get mixing
Add 1/2 teaspoon of your spice mix, shot of espresso, sugar (if using), dash of vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon of your pumpkin puree into your hot milk. Whisk until smooth.
Go outside, look at the beautiful autumnal colours and enjoy! ☕️
Top tip for extra gorgeousness: serve with whipped cream, a dusting of cocoa powder and a cinnamon stick for stirring. Mmmmmmmmm!
