1 Tablespoon sugar (or more or less)

1 cup milk, any kind (I used unsweetened almond milk)

1 shot espresso OR 1/4 cup strongly brewed coffee

whipped cream or coconut cream for topping, optional

1.) Add pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice to small saucepan over med. high heat. Stir with spatula until fragrant and bubbly, 30 sec. – 1 min., then add sugar and stir until smooth and bubbly, another 30 sec. Whisk in milk then add vanilla, stir until hot, 2-3 min.
2.) Brew espresso or coffee into mug then strain milk mixture into mug and serve. The straining step is optional but it catches any larger pieces of pumpkin and any chalky spices.
