- 1 coffee cup
- 1 measuring cup
- 1 milk frother
- 1 tbs
- 1 tsp
For the Salted Pumpkin Spice Syrup:
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Bourbon Extract
- 1/2 cup (80 g) of coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) of pure maple syrup
- 1/3 cup (80 ml) of unsweetened pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp of freshly grated nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp of ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp of fine sea salt, or to taste
For the Pumpkin Spice Latte:
- 2 tbs (1 shot/1 ounce) of espresso
- 1 cup (250 ml) of unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
- 3-4 tsp (15 to 20 ml) of salted pumpkin spice syrup
- Coconut whipped cream for garnish (optional)
- Dash of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice for garnish
- For the Pumpkin Spice Syrup: Whisk together all syrup ingredients in a medium pot over medium heat. Simmer for about 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until smooth and slightly thickened.
- Remove from heat. Once cool, pour leftovers into a jar and secure lid.
- Prepare the espresso or pick some up from a local coffee shop.
- Add milk into a small pot. Heat over medium and bring to a simmer. Immediately remove from heat. Froth the milk using a milk frother or a French press.
- Pour hot espresso into a mug. Top with all of the frothy milk. Add 3 to 4 teaspoons of the syrup, to taste, and gently stir to combine.
- Top with a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, and Coconut Whipped Cream, if desired. Serve immediately.
Tip: You can use it in regular coffee, too, or try stirring it into a bowl of hot oatmeal for a seasonal twist.
The syrup will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 2 weeks. Ingredients other than Divine Essence vanilla bourbon aromatic extract can be purchased at a grocery store. This delicious recipe is originaly from ohsheglows.com
