Warm Spiced Latte

The spice combination is what really makes the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, but at the ridiculous cost and questionable ingredient list, why not do it at home? Pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract are two key ingredients that make this latte feel festive and delightful. If you omit the coffee, you still get a wonderful spiced steam milk.

This doesn’t have pumpkin in it, but I find the flavor still feels like a pumpkin pie. You can make this vegan by using almond milk as well. Inspired by the wonderful Vegan Richa’s recipe for a Pumpkin Spice Frap!

Ingredients
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs raw agave syrup or 2 tbs raw sugar
1 cup milk or almond milk
1-2 shots of espresso
Add whipped cream or coconut whipped cream with a bit of nutmeg for garnish

Serving 1

Directions
1. Add pie spice and vanilla to a mug and pour espresso over it. Let it steep while you steam the milk.
2. Add syrup and cover with milk. Stir well and serve hot.
