To a small pan add the milk, pumpkin puree and sugar.
Set the pot on the stove.
On medium heat warm up the mixture until the sugar is melted.
Turn off the heat and add the espresso, vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice.
Mix everything together with a whisk.
Pour the mixture into a cup. You might want to use a sieve as usually not all of the pumpkin puree dissolves in the milk.
Top the latte with your choice of topping.
I encourage you to play with the measurements of the ingredients until you get it just right for yourself. The measurements in this recipe are simply how I like my latte.Topping ideas:
Top your PSL with some whipped cream. What makes it even better is if you make your whipped cream yourself and add some vanilla sugar or pumpkin spice with it before whipping. Flavored whipped cream always rounds up your drink! On top of that you can sprinkle some pumpkin spice over it.
A simpler topping would be a simple milk froth, preferably hot steamed to keep it stiff longer
FAQ and expert tips:Can you make an iced version of the pumpkin spice latte?Yes, simply let the milk mixture cool down and add the coffee later. Use cold coffee or even better cold brew. Pour everything over some ice.
Can I use a sugar substitute?Yes, you can. however, the flavor will be different as brown sugar as a strong flavor. You might have to play with the other ingredients a bit in order to make it taste good.
Spike it:Spike your latte with some booze of your choice.
