Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Latte
1 serving

1 cup milk
1 tablespoon canned pumpkin
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla (not a typo!)
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee

Combine milk, pumpkin, and sugar in saucepan. Cook on medium heat, stirring until steaming. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and spice. Transfer to a blender and process until foamy. Pour into a large mug and add coffee. Top with fresh whipped cream and a
sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!

Mr. H. is the coffee drink maker in this house, but his aversion to all things pumpkin, had me on my own for this concoction.  I used a recipe that claimed to be just like Starbucks.  Now, I've never had a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, so I can't really compare. But, it sure was good and it certainly took less time and money than going to Starbucks! :-)
