Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin purée
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice *See note
  • 2 cups soy milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or preferred sweetener), more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 4 shots brewed espresso *See note

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, heat the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla extract & spices over medium-low heat. Stir constantly to combine well & prevent from burning. Warm for 1-2 minutes.
  • Turn up heat to medium and add the soy milk. Whisk for 3-4 minutes, until heated throughout (don't boil).
  • Place mixture in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. (This will make the milk frothy too)
  • Add hot espresso to each mug and pour pumpkin spice mixture on top.
  • *Optional: Top with vegan whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon and garnish with a cinnamon stick (doubles as a straw). Enjoy!

Notes

*If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can use 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch each of nutmeg, ground ginger and ground cloves.
*If you don't have an espresso maker, you can make the latte with 1/3 -1/2 cup strong coffee. It won't have the same rich taste as a classic latte, but it will still be delicious.
* I prefer soy milk because it really foams up in the blender. 
* Nutritional info doesn't include the espresso.
