Yummy Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Reading all the entries for the Starbucks giveaway has me thinking of all the yummy fall coffee drinks.  Last year I found this recipe and made it for our Ladies’ Cookie Exchange.  Everyone loved it.  I multiplied everything by four to have a big batch.  And the smell was outrageous.

I have another amazing giveaway coming tomorrow.  You don’t want to miss this one.  I am so excited!   If you haven’t entered to win the Starbuck’s gift card and beautifully designed card from Melissa at Kaufman’s Cottage there is still time.  Just click here.

Slow cooker Surprise: Pumpkin Spice Latte from Good Morning America Food and Recipes

Servings: 2

Ingredients

1/2 cup brewed espresso or 3/4 cup strong coffee

2 cups milk (preferably 1 percent)

2 tablespoons canned pureed pumpkin

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon cloves

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

tiny pinch of ground ginger

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

whipped cream (optional)

Directions

Use a 2-quart slow cooker.

Add coffee/espresso and milk to the stoneware.

Whisk in pumpkin, spices, sugar, and vanilla.

Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.

Whisk again.  Ladle into mugs, and garnish with whipped cream and additional cinnamon.  Add a cinnamon stick for a fanciful effect.
