Fall is just around the corner and I have to admit, I am a sucker for everything pumpkin spice. I think my brain has been re-wired to associate fall with pumpkin spice.
The problem is, I am really trying to reduce the amount of sugar in my diet. So, that doesn’t really leave room for drinking 50g of sugar in one cup. (Well, maybe every once in a while…)
Anyhow, I came up with this recipe that I don’t have to feel as guilty about drinking, but really do enjoy!
I use my beloved Nespresso Machine to make my espresso. It comes with a handy milk frother, so I like to froth my pumpkin milk once I have mixed it all together. It is my absolute favorite! However, you can also make this recipe with regular coffee as well.
