Pumpkin spice yumminess

Well, I can't talk about my yummy homemade latte on facebook and then not share the recipe, that would just be mean!  I found the recipe on yahoo and then tweaked it a little bit, here goes . . . 

• 1/2 cup milk (I used 1%)

• ½ cup coffee (brew it strong) 

• 3 tablespoons pumpkin purée 

• 2-3 tablespoons agave nectar (more to sweeten, here are your calories!) 

• 1 teaspoon vanilla 

• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 

• 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 

• 1/4 teaspoon cloves

Whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, and agave (or whatever alternate sweetener you want to use) over medium heat until almost boiling.  Add spices and vanilla, continuing to whisk briskly.  If you want, you can run it thru your blender or food processor for froth . . . I didn't and found it to be yummy anyway.  Pour milk mix into your mug and add coffee.  Enjoy!  

Keep in mind that you may need to tweak the spices to get your perfect mix.  If you have pumpkin pie spice, you can use that instead of individual spices.  And of course, a little whipped cream on top would not be amiss!   Sorry there is no picture of my latte, but it is long gone.  Let me know how yours turns out!
