Click on the link above if you are interested in her recipe. I will tell you though the tweeks that I made to make it more delicious and also to use what I have without having to
First of all, I do not have an espresso maker... one day maybe... so I made extra strong coffee in our coffee pot. I did 2 heaping scoops for less than 1 cup of water (keep in mind I am guesstimating at all this, so this was strong for me, but may not be strong for you).
Next, I do not have a milk steamer or an immersion blender... so I whipped out my trusty nutri-bullet (NB).
Also, I did not have any liquid stevia, so I used 1/2 stevia packet. Mama Natural suggests using more maple syrup if you do not have liquid, but I am not a huge fan of maple syrup, so I opted for the regular stevia.
I put my strong coffee in my nutri-bullet and added the ingredients she listed. I then blasted it real quick to get it a little thicker and all mixed well together. I then poured it into my mug and rinsed out the NB cup and blade.
Next, she said to boil milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk) on stove, well I was impatient, and as much as I do not like to use the microwave because it is suppose to be hazardous to your health... I popped it in there for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Being careful I poured it into the NB cup and blasted it until frothy and then followed it by taking spoon and holding back froth while I poured milk over my pumpkin espresso mixture and then topped with the froth.
I did not put any coconut sugar on top because I do not have any.
It looked super yummy though, but when I took a sip it was missing something to me.
Well, I don't know about you but I think pumpkin and chocolate go wonderfully together! So I melted 1 tbsp mini choc chips with 1 tsp almond milk. Mixed it together (it would not get the runny consistency I wanted to drizzle it on top) and just stuck the whole spoon in with some chocolate on it and mixed it and mannnnnnnnnnnnn was it good!!
Give it a try! It is a latte kind of day!
Let me know if you have any healthier versions of yummy drinks!
