Pumpkin Lattes {with Spiced Pumpkin Whipped Cream}

I’ll need an entire pot of this.

You won’t believe how wonderful this smells, like pumpkin pie in a cup.

Pumpkin Latte with Spiced Pumpkin Whipped Cream

The delicious aroma is only thing keeping me awake after another night of insomnia.

Someone explain this to me please…

As women, we devote our 20’s-30’s tending to children at all hours of the moonlight,

only to discover that as we near our 40’s, and the children actually sleep through the night, WE no longer can!

No wonder we are so productive. We’re awake for so many hours!

In my “productive state” early this morning, I whipped up this Autumnal Cup o’ Joe.

Pumpkin Lattes with Spiced Pumpkin Whipped Cream

(For one pot of coffee)

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice over coffee grounds then brew as usual.

Try not to eat the whole bowl of pumpkin cream, as tempting as it may be!

Pour coffee into your cup, sweeten as desired, and add some half & half.

Top with a generous dollop of the spiced pumpkin whipped cream and garnish with a cinnamon stick or extra dash of spice.

Enjoy!

    The insomnia sounds like Perimenopause. The latte sounds like heaven.

  4. I can’t WAIT to try this! Wow! And your sleep comment made me laugh; I’ve pretty much accepted the fact that I’ll never sleep well again. Ha!!

  5. Oh my, this looks good! I think I’d eat the whole bowl of whipped cream before it made it into my coffee! LOL!!

  6. This looks so amazing!! I’m definitely going to try this. For some reason, it never dawned on me to put any type of spice or flavoring in with the coffee grounds…lol. See…it’s because of people like me that Starbuck’s can stay in business. :)

  7. Totally pinning!!! woo-hoo! love the pumpkin time of year!
