The Perfect Pumpkin Spice Latte!

🎃 🎃 Pumpkin Spice Latte season is here 🎃 🎃

Add this recipe onto your list of things you're going to be excited about this Autumn!

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
Ingredients 
  • 1 small pumpkin
  • Your favourite milk – dairy or non dairy work equally well
  • Vanilla extract
  • Sugar to taste
  • 1 shot of your favourite espresso

Optional

  • Whole cinnamon stick
  • Whipped or squirty cream
  • Cocoa powder for dusting

METHOD 

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.

5. Drink!

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!
