Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte

(Recipe adapted from a Cozy Kitchen who adapted it from The Kitchn)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1-2 shots Il Piacere (Espresso) (about 1/4 cup of espresso or 1/2 cup of strong brewed La Semeuse coffee if you don’t have an espresso machine.)

Directions For Iced:

Brew your coffee or espresso and let it sit out for a few minutes until it reaches room temperature.  You could also put it in the fridge or freezer to speed up the cooling process.

In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin, and sugar and cook on low heat, stirring, just until the sugar and pumpkin are dissolved. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice, transfer to a blender and process for 15 seconds until foamy. If you don’t have a blender, don’t worry about it – just whisk the mixture really well with a wire whisk.

Pour into a cup filled with ice. Add the espresso or coffee on top.

Top with whipped cream and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, or cinnamon on top.

Directions For Hot:

In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin, and sugar and cook on medium heat, stirring, until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice, transfer to a blender and process for 15 seconds until foamy. If you don’t have a blender, don’t worry about it – just whisk the mixture really well with a wire whisk.

Pour into a large mug or two mugs. Add the hot espresso or coffee on top.

Top with whipped cream and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, or cinnamon on top.
