Decadent Pumpkin Spice Latte The Night Before Thanksgiving!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving Break. I will be leaving this afternoon to head out of town to see my family.
 

I cant wait, I'm looking so forward to our big Thanksgiving feast. All that yummy food to be eaten.
 

I wanted to pop on and add a quick post. I happened upon a blog post for a homemade Decadent Pumpkin Spice Latte at Baking with Books.

It looked so good and the list of ingredients were just to die for. Plus it stated it was compared to the Starbucks Pumpkin Latte, so I knew it had to be great.

We made these lattes last week and I am happy to say they turned out so yummy and in deed were decadent. It was so good that I knew I had to share this recipe.
 

 I think these latte's have the perfect amount of pumpkin so it is not overpowering at all. I wanted to get this post up because I think this would be the perfect little treat on this eve of Thanksgiving.

Why not whip up a batch and sit back and enjoy some time with family and friends. Pop in a holiday movie or just sit back and catch up with everyone.
 

The night before Thanksgiving is all about relaxing before the big day. So why not make pumpkin lattes everyone will love you for it.
I want to wish everyone a "Happy Thanksgiving" from my home to yours! I'm so thankful that my family is happy and healthy.

I am also so blessed to have wonderful friends in my life, including all of you!!! I will be back posting after the Thanksgiving Holiday so I get a bit of a blogging break.

Remember Gobble till you Wobble.

These are the ingredients you will need:pumpkin, strong coffee, milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, brown sugar, sugar, non dairy creamer, nutmeg, ground cloves and whipped cream.
In a blender puree the milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, brown sugar and vanilla.


Pour into a small saucepan and cook over low heat until the milk is warm and begins to froth slightly. (About 4-5 minutes.)
 
Remove from heat. For each serving: Pour 1/2 cup of the pumpkin mixture into your coffee mug. Add 2 generous tablespoons of Coffee mate creamer.
 
Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, then add 1 cup of brewed coffee. Add 2 to 4 teaspoons of sugar (depending on how sweet you like your drink, I added 3 tsps.)
 
Top off with a touch more ‘pumpkin milk’ then cover with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve immediately.





Decandent Spiced Pumpkin Latte

1 - level tablespoon pumpkin puree
1 - cup milk (whole if you dare!)
1/2 - tablespoon light brown sugar (packed and leveled)
1/4 - tsp cinnamon
1/8 - tsp nutmeg (+ a pinch for dusting later)
1/8 - tsp ground cloves
1/2 - tsp pure vanilla extract
2 - cups strong coffee (a shot or two of espresso works great)
4 - tablespoons Coffee mate creamer
4 - 8 teaspoons of granulated sugar
Whipped cream

Begin brewing coffee. In a blender puree the milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, brown sugar and vanilla. 

Pour into a small saucepan and cook over low heat until the milk is warm and begins to froth slightly. (About 4-5 minutes.) 

Remove from heat. For each serving: Pour 1/2 cup of the pumpkin mixture into your coffee mug. 

Add 2 generous tablespoons of Coffee mate creamer. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, then add 1 cup of brewed coffee. 

Add 2 to 4 teaspoons of sugar (depending on how sweet you like your drink, I added 3 tsps.) 

Top off with a touch more ‘pumpkin milk’ then cover with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve immediately.

Servings: 2

Cooks Note: I think after the pumpkin milk is heated on the stove. It could easily be added to a slow cooker to keep warm. Then everyone can add the pumpkin milk to their mugs and then the rest of the ingredients. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
