  • Homemade Pumpkin Latte

  • It can be hard to get in the "fall" mood here in Los Angeles. The weather is so warm. The trees don't change much and often don't change til later in the winter. The internet keeps reminding me though, that it is in fact FALL. With my new feeds full of all of my friends pinning and posting pumpkin muffins and cakes and lattes its hard to not want to indulge. I always click on the latte link, (cause doesn't a pumpkin latte sound wonderful?) only to find that the directions always have way to many steps. I do not want to bust out the immersion blender (HA if I owned one) at 6 am when I make my latte. So I thought I would try a simplified dairy and sugar free version (that won't wake up everyone in my tower at 6 am) and it came out pretty tasty! You need: Canned Pumpkin Pumpkin Pie Spice Canned Coconut Milk Espresso Take a spoonful of pumpkin and some shakes of pumpkin pie spice and set aside in a bowl. Make your espresso (I use the double cup) Pour the espresso into the bowl with the pumpkin and wisk it up! Pour the wisked up pumpkin espresso into a cup. Froth up your coconut milk. Pour your frothy goodness over your espresso Attempt seasonal latte art. #latteartfail Enjoy. xoxo Christina Hultquist
