Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon full fat coconut milk, cream, milk of choice, or water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla (gluten-free, as needed)
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 8 drops of liquid stevia (such as NuNatural's version) or 1-4 tablespoons of sweetener of choice such as rapadura, maple syrup, honey, etc.
  • 1 ½ -2 cups of strongly brewed coffee or 4 shots of espresso with added water to equal 2 cups
  • ¾- 1 cup of full fat coconut milk, dairy-free milk of choice, or cow or goat milk
  • Cinnamon for sprinkling on the top, optional
  • Coconut whipped cream, optional
Instructions
  1. Mix the pumpkin puree, tablespoon of milk, spices, and sweetener in a small bowl. Whisk well.
  2. In a small pot or saucepan, whisk the coffee and pumpkin mixture together, and heat until at desired temperature.
  3. In a separate small pot or saucepan, heat the milk of choice, and using a handheld frother, froth it. (I find this works best when the milk is JUST hot, not boiling).
  4. Divide the coffee mixture into two cups, and pour the foamed milk over it. Top with coconut whipped cream, if desired, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve and enjoy.
