Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte

Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte

Makes 1 latte.

Save yourself loads of money and make this at home!
Slightly adapted from: Foods for the Soul

1 c skim milk
1 tbsp pumpkin butter
1 + ½ tbsp sugar-free vanilla syrup (OR 2 packets Splenda + 1 tsp vanilla extract)
tiny pinch ground cinnamon
tiny pinch ground nutmeg
tiny pinch ground ginger
2 shots hot espresso OR 6 oz hot strong coffee

In a small pot, combine the milk and pumpkin puree (and Splenda, if using).  Heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the  milk begins to simmer.  Whisk vigorously until frothy.  Turn heat down to low, and add in the vanilla syrup (or vanilla extract), cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.  Whisk until fully incorporated.

Pour the espresso of coffee into a mug, and pour the milk mixture on top.  Sip and enjoy!
