let's make pumpkin spice lattes!


It's officially pumpkin spice everything season. And to be honest, I'm totally cool with that. I feel like this 'pumpkin' season is slowly starting just a little sooner every year though. I mean, it's not even October yet. Regardless, I'm on the pumpkin train.

This recipe is adapted from the vitamix book "create". 

To make pumpkin spice syrup all you need is:
  • 2 cups pumpkin purree
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup agave 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • 1 tsp ground ginger

Combine all ingredients in a blender/foodprocessor/vitamix until well blended and creamy. You can store this in your fridge until you're ready to use.

To make the latte all you need is (makes one for you and one for someone special) :
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin syrup
  • 1/2 cup warm milk alternative
  • 1 & 1/2 cup freshly brewed coffee

Combine all ingredients in your blender of choice! 

Now, enjoy :) 

also, my beautiful sister made me that lovely cup cozy!
