A vegan-friendly twist on the traditional popular fall beverage. Pumpkin spice blend is easy to make at home, so you can enjoy a warm hug-in-a-mug all Autumn long! The sweetness can be adjusted to your liking. This recipe makes enough for two large mugs.
To make the pumpkin spice blend, simply mix together all the spices and store in an airtight jar or container.
Brew the espresso as per the directions on your particular espresso maker. In a small sauce pan, gently heat the pumpkin puree, the ½ teaspoon of pumpkin spice blend, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and ¼ cup of the almond milk until warm. Remove from heat and stir in the brewed espresso.
In another small sauce pan, heat the remaining almond milk just until it starts steaming. If you prefer your latte with foam, you'll need to froth the milk now. Remove from heat and gently pour over the espresso/pumpkin mixture. Stir to combine.
Top with your favorite non-dairy whip or foam. Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh grated nutmeg.
