Enjoy this creamy, fall-inspired drink any time of the year.


  • measuring cup
  • measuring spoons
  • milk frother


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin purée
  • sugar to taste
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup espresso or 1/3 cup of brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream, for topping (optional)
  • sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon (optional)


  1. Make coffee.
  2. Mix milk with pumpkin purée in a mug and heat in microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice.
  4. Froth milk mixture if desired with a milk frother.
  5. Add milk to coffee.
  6. Top with whipping cream and sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon if desired.


  • If you have time, heat milk, pumpkin purée, pumpkin spice and vanilla extract gently for about 5 minutes in a small saucepan while stirring constantly to let the flavours infuse.
  • Make your own pumpkin pie spice by mixing ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and ground cloves in a 4:1:1 proportion. For example, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves will yield 1-1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice. If you use this combo often, premix a batch and store it in a small jar.
