I know, this is not the crab cakes I promised. But the weather is so crappy and I’m so cold and wet and even though I’m not ready to let go of summer, fall seems to be pushing it’s way into our lives like a battering ram. I really only have one way to cope (because I am NOT ready for pants yet), which is by embracing my favorite part of fall- the pumpkin spice latte.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
1 cup milk
1/2 cup espresso or 1 cup strong coffee
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 tablespoons sugar
In a pot over medium heat, combine milk, pumpkin, sugar, cocoa and spice. Heat, stirring occasionally. Add coffee. Using an immersion blender, blend until frothy (or, whisk until frothy.) Serve.
