Are you ready for a warm and comforting winter drink?
Then this one is just right for you: a homemade pumpkin spice latte.
This is the perfect drink for a cozy Sunday morning with your loved ones, enjoying the warmth of your home.
It’s really simple.
All you need is pumpkin puree, oat milk, and the right spices. Coupled with an espresso shot, and you’re good to go.
The spices that really give you this winter feeling are cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, star anise, nutmeg, and allspice.
You can always use the dried, powdered version of these spices, but adding some fresh ginger and star anise gives some additional depth of flavor.
Simply mix all of the ingredients (except the coffee) in a pot and bring to simmer for a few minutes. Make sure to stir so everything is well combined.
You can adjust the sweetness as you like. If you do not have coconut blossom sugar, simply leave it out, or replace it with maple syrup, or any other sweetener.
In the meantime, prepare your espresso or coffee. After you poured the hot pumpkin latte in your glasses or cups, add the espresso shot.
If you want, heat up some additional oat milk and make it foamy. Layer on top, and sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon.
You have your hot and comforting winter drink. Enjoy.
