Tips for the Best Results
- For a stronger coffee flavor, use extra espresso.
- If you don't have an espresso machine, you can use a French press or a single-serve coffee maker to brew strong coffee.
- To make coffee ice cubes, brew extra coffee and pour it into an ice cube tray. Use these cubes instead of regular ice cubes to prevent diluting the flavor.
- Adjust the sweetness to your preference by adding more or less maple syrup.
- For a vegan version, substitute the milk with your favorite non-dairy milk and omit the whipped cream topping or use a dairy free version.
Substitutions and Variations
- Instead of pumpkin puree, you can use pumpkin pie filling for a sweeter and more spiced flavor.
- Make your own homemade pumpkin pie spice blend by combining cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger in the desired proportions.
- Add a drizzle of homemade pumpkin spice syrup or vanilla syrup for an extra touch of sweetness.
- Experiment with different types of milk to find your favorite combination of flavors.
- Fee free to make your own homemade whipped cream to top this yummy pumpkin latte!
Absolutely! Regular cow's milk works perfectly in this recipe. Feel free to use your favorite type of milk.
Store any leftover pumpkin puree in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze it for longer shelf life.
