Ingredients

  • 1-2 shots of espresso (or ¼ cup water and 1 tablespoon instant espresso mix)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin purée
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (or stevia, natural sugar substitute)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for garnish* (optional)
  • Cool Whip or whipped cream, for garnish (optional)

Directions

Brew the espresso and place in the refrigerator, uncovered, for a few minutes (skip this step if using instant mix).

In a small pot over medium-low heat, add milk, pumpkin purée, and sugar (or sugar substitute), stirring until well mixed. Add the vanilla and ½ teaspoon of pumpkin spice, then whisk with a wire whisk for 30 seconds.

Transfer to a mug or cup, then add the espresso (or water and instant espresso). Top with Cool Whip (or whipped cream) and additional spices, if desired.

Pumpkin Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Pumpkin Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
