So are you one of those people that CANNOT wait till fall hits so you can get your
Pumpkin Spice Latte on!! 😛
As you know most of the coffee shops only have this Pumpkin Spice Syrup during the fall and maybe into the winter???
I don’t know because I am not one of those people 😛
But it doesn’t mean I don’t want to get on the “Band Wagon” and make my own…LOL!!
So many recipes have been flying around the internet, so I decided I would give it a try…
And let me tell you it turned out DELICIOUS!!!!!!!
I kind of shock myself…LOL 😛
So of course I dug into my spices to find the hidden Pumpkin Pie Spice in the back from the fall before LOL and finally can open one of the two large can of pumpkin pure, again from the fall before 😦
Okay so what else…I found some sweetened condensed milk and now I just needed cream, but I didn’t want to use cream, so I settled for half n half.
Okay I think I am ready to go and this is how it all went.
in a saucepan, pumpkin, milk and spice
stir that up, then stir in the half n half
cook on med-high
okay I will confess, I had in on med-high, but I was trying to do other things as well, and I may not have been stirring it the whole time…hence it started to burn on the bottom, when I went back to it, and started whisking like a mad women, black bits started to surface. I may have cursed that this time, but I turned it down to low and kept on whisking until it thickened a little, then I let it cool for 5 minutes
Once I tried it was AWESOME!! It tasted like Toasted Pumpkin Marshmallow 🙂
I thought Holy Crap I just added another flavor dimension…WOOO HOOOO!!!!! LOL 🙂
It does get a little darker as it thickens
now you have strain this through a fine mesh strainer,
and take the back of a spatula and force the mixture through the
strainer by moving the spatula back and forth
this is what you will have left in the strainer
after I let the mixture cool in the fridge,
I poured it into 2 little mason jars
This will keep in your fridge up to 2 weeks
if it last that long 🙂 LOL
My Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino
I added to my mug, about 2 Tbsp. pumpkin mixture
2 Tbsp. creamer and stir it up
Then I frothed that
Then I add my espresso
and to finish it off I sprinkle a little
Pumpkin Pie Spice on top…it was just Yumm!!!
Now you can just mix it into your regular coffee,
as I did at the office this morning 🙂
As I talk to some of the ladies this morning, I started coming up
all kinds ideas to do with this mixture besides to put in your
coffee…oh a can wait to get back in the kitchen…stay tune!!!

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup half n’ half, or cream or whole milk
and darkens a little. Like I said above, let it burn a little and it will give it a toasted flavored, I felt
like that added such good flavor.
