I love pumpkin spice lattes on a cool crisp autumn day! Unfortunately they are just not usually in the budget. But my friend Kris in Taiwan sent me this recipe for crock pot lattes that have real pumpkin in them! The other bonus, unlike the coffee shop version, this one’s GF! This recipe makes enough for two. So invite a friend over and enjoy!
2 cups milk
2 Tbsp canned pumpkin
2 Tbsp white sugar
2 Tbsp vanilla
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice or you can use: 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp cloves, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and a teeny tiny pinch of ground ginger
1/2 cup brewed espresso or 3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
Pour milk and coffee into crock pot. (A small one works best). Whisk in the rest of the ingredients.
Cook on high for 2 hours or until hot.
Whisk again before pouring into mugs. Top with whipped cream if desired.
