Fellow mommy, don’t you think you deserve at least five minutes of relaxation and a hot cup of coffee? I do; you deserve it, you hard-working gal, you. If you’re looking to add a little spice to your morning routine, you’ve come to just the right spot! This week’s recipe… pumpkin lattes.

Every fall, I get a craving for all things pumpkin. I currently have a box of pumpkin donuts sitting in the kitchen calling my name. What could be better than a lovely cup of coffee to go with it? The best part of this recipe is that it includes actual pumpkin and not pumpkin spice, which is a personal preference.

Pumpkin Latte

2 tsp. canned pumpkin (either store-bought or homemade)
Coffee
Half n’ Half
Sweetener of Choice

Directions:
In a large mug, add two tbsp. of canned pumpkin and your hot coffee. Blend the pumpkin into the coffee, using a fork or small mixer, until smooth. Once the pumpkin has been incorporated, add your creamer and sweetener. Enjoy!

Coffee

It’s amazing how some of the sweetest things in life are simple. This recipe takes very little time to make and yet tastes wonderful. Unlike recipes which include only pumpkin spice, this latte has a full-bodied flavor and richness. Plus, you can make it in minutes!

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I shall indulge in a cup myself. Along with that pumpkin donut, of course!

  1. I love that this doesn’t have spice in it. Spices give coffee a gritty/grainy texture I don’t enjoy. I shall be trying a spice free pumpkin coffee in the near future! Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. I’m not a coffee drinker – we drink water mostly. When fall hits, though, I really love spiced apple cider. We make this by getting some apple cider (NOT juice), and mulling it on the stovetop with whole cinnamon sticks until hot. Yum.
