Happy Halloween everybody! If you happen to wake up tomorrow to a street filled with smashed pumpkins, we have the perfect idea for how to use them. Make yourself a homemade pumpkin spice latte. Okay, maybe don’t use street pumpkins, but still try the recipe.
- 1 15-oz. can pumpkin puree
- 2 c. whole milk
- 1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk
- 1/3 c. brown sugar
- 2 T. pure vanilla extract
- 1 T. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 tsp. ground dried ginger
- 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp. allspice
- Boom Boom! Dark Roast
- slightly sweetened whipped cream
- dark chocolate shavings
In a blender, combine all the pumpkin spice mixture ingredients. Puree for about 30 seconds. If you want a smoother mixture, puree for a couple minutes, or until the mixture is to your desired consistency.
Pour 1/2 cup (more or less, depending on your preference) of the pumpkin spice mixture into a large mug. Microwave for about 20 seconds, then add 1 cup of hot Boom Boom! Happy Cup coffee and stir. Top with a nice lofty pile of sweetened whipped cream. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. And if you’re looking for extra deliciousness, top with chocolate shavings. So pretty!
Pour the remaining pumpkin spice mixture into a quart jar or similar sized container and top with a lid. Store in the refrigerator. When ready to make another drink, shake the jar well and repeat the assembly of the pumpkin spice latte. The pumpkin spice mixture will keep well for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
