Paleo Pumpkin Spiced Latte

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Pureed Pumpkin
  • 1 Tbsp Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp Raw Organic Honey (Optional)
  • 1/4 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Nutmeg or Allspice
  • 1/2 Cup Strong Coffee or Espresso
1. Brew your coffee or espresso first however you like. I brewed a double shot of espresso (using 2 TBSP ground coffee for 1 cup of coffee), and added a bit of water (making it like an Americano.)
2. In a sauce pan over medium heat, add coconut milk, pureed pumpkin, and raw organic honey until your coconut milk is bubbling and steaming.
3. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg/allspice.
4. Pour into the bottom half of a coffee cup, then pour in your strong coffee or espresso on top of it.
Please note: if you have or have made coconut whip cream, you can add it on top and then sprinkle with some cocoa powder. (I did not do this. Nor did I use honey.) For even more latte-ness, use 2/3-1 cup coconut milk.
