Ok so this actually has nothing to do with ghosts, but what better to have while reading ghost stories than a nice hot cup of home made pumpkin spice latte?  We really enjoyed making these.

You can find the recipe here.

Obviously I tinkered with it a little as I was making 3.  I also added instant espresso powder for a bit stronger coffee…cause that is who I am.


Mine is more like

3 cups milk

3 tbs pumpkin puree

3 tbs sugar (we didn’t feel it needed to be too sweet)

2 tbs vanilla extract

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 cup strong brewed coffee

1/2 teaspoon espresso powder (we wanted more coffee flavor)


Mix milk, pumpkin, and sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat.  Heat through but do not boil, continue stirring.  Remove from heat, add vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and coffee (this is when I add espresso powder).  Mix well and divide into 3 mugs.  The original recipe calls for whip cream for serving, unfortunately we didn’t have any but I’m sure it would be very nice.  We enjoyed our lattes with a nice ghost story.
