RECIPE} Clean Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall is around the corner and that means pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING (or so it seems!). Are you a pumpkin flavor fan? A victim to the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte? Personally, I'm not a fan of the famous latte. It's always tasted fake to me (not to mention all of the fake sweeteners and crazy amount of calories), but I DO love the pumpkin flavor, which caused me to search this fabulous little concoction out! This version of pumpkin spice latte has half the calories of your favorite fall treat.

Clean Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

1 cup nonfat milk (I use almond milk)
1 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup brewed black coffee or 1 shot espresso
1 dash ground nutmeg (to taste; optional)
Heat milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and extract in medium saucepan over medium heat; cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until mixture is hot, but not boiling. It is ready when there are many small bubbles on the sides of the saucepan.
Remove from heat; mix vigorously with a whisk until frothy.
Pour coffee or espresso into serving mug; top with milk mixture.
Top with nutmeg if desired.
