Yep, that’s right, I said, “spiked”.
Sweet Pea from the blog Newlyweds has this great Pumpkin Spiced Latte recipe. She is my Secret Recipe Club assignment for this month. She’s also a Texas gal, and you know we are all neighbors here in the Lone Star State even if we have never met in person before. So a big shout out to Sweet Pea from Vivisue (that’s me)! Nothin’ like some good ‘ol southern hospitality.
Sweet Pea has a LOT of wonderful recipes on her blog. However, it was real easy to pick one because as soon as I saw it my taste buds said, “Well hello darlin’!” (There’s a song in there somewhere.)
I was ready to get to know this recipe better.
I know y’all are just as excited as all git out to get a looksee at the recipe. And you will be even more excited to get a taste of this truly warm, cozy, and delicious concoction. Thanks for the recipe, Sweet Pea. It will definitely be one of my favorite holiday, cold night, snowy day comforts. Oh, and did I mention that I have NEVER had a latte. Nope, never. Until now. This is a great “first”!
Pumpkin Spiked Latte
Makes about 4 cups or 2 big mug fulls
2 cups Milk
3 Tbsp canned Pumpkin
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Bailey’s Irish Cream (optional)
1 tsp Vanilla (2 tsp if you do not use the Bailey’s)
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 cup strong brewed strong Coffee
In a saucepan stir together milk, pumpkin and sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and pumpkin pie spice, and just whip the mixture really well with a wire whisk, till frothy.
Pour into large mugs. Add the coffee on top.
Top with whipped cream and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice.
This stuff is so good it makes you wanna slap your husband . . .
(in a fun way, of course)
