This was a nice change. I didn't have cofee creamor, so I used a little heavy whipping cream and extra milk. It was very good. I would suggest only making part of that syprup because I have sooo much left over, and I don't know what I will do with it all.
- 1 tablespoon canned pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons vanilla-flavored syrup (I just use about 1-2 tbsp. Splenda here)
- 1 cup milk or 1 cup soymilk or 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup coffee creamer
- 1⁄4 cup espresso (I used some espresso coffee here (Starbucks brand) or 1⁄2 cup strong brewed coffee (I used some espresso coffee here (Starbucks brand)
Gingerbread Syrup use 1 tsp
- 2 cups water
- 1 1⁄2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions See How It's Made
- Make the gingerbread syrup by combining water, sugar, ginger, cinnamon and vanilla in a medium saucepan.
- (Note: or sub 1/4 t. ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice) Be sure the pan is not too small or the mixture could easily bubble over.
- Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat and simmer syrup, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
- Remove the syrup from the heat when it's done and slap a lid on it.
- To make a pumpkin latte at home: In a small saucepan, stir pumpkin puree into milk.
- Add syrup(s), remember to use 2 tablespoons Gingerbread Syrup.
- Heat gently until steaming, stirring occasionally.
- Blend on high for 20 second until foaming.
- Pour flavored milk into a tall glass and pour coffee over.
- Dust with ground pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg, optional.
- Just as good as Starbucks IMO.
