The best homemade pumpkin spice latte you'll ever make. Made with basic pantry ingredients: pumpkin puree, brewed coffee, milk of choice, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, and maple syrup.
Brew 1/2 cup of your favorite coffee. You may desire more coffee, so make a little extra if desired. Set the coffee aside and keep warm.
In a small saucepan, over medium heat, warm the milk, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin puree. Whisk the ingredients until the milk begins to bubble on the sides. Turn off the heat and add the vanilla extract.
Pour the warm milk in a large bowl or work in the saucepan. Use an immersion blender (or milk frother) to create the milk froth. This is the secret to creating a homemade latte without an expensive machine. If you don't have a immersion blender (or milk frother), vigorously whisk the milk in the saucepan as the bubbles begin to form (while heating the milk). This method won't create the same froth, but it will still create a tasty coffee drink.
Pour the frothy milk into a large coffee mug. Then carefully pour the coffee into the frothy milk.
Serve the coffee warm.
If you'd like to serve your latte with whipped cream topping, use this recipe. Add the whipped topping directly to the top of the latte before serving.
