REAL Pumpkin Latte'

Okay, so I just saw this recipe, which included pictures, and had to share it. So here you go:

Kathy's Real Pumpkin Spice Soy Latte
vegan, makes one big latte

Coffee/Soymilk Base:
1 1/2 cups vanilla soymilk
1-2 shots espresso OR 1/2 cup strongly brewed coffee
1 1/2 Tbsp canned pumpkin (unsweetened)
sweeten to taste (I used agave syrup)
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice OR cinnamon/nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
dash of cayenne (optional, but recommended!)

Sweet Pumpkin Foam:
1 tsp canned unsweetened pumpkin
1/4 cup warm soy milk
1 tsp agave syrup
dash of spice
tiniest pinch of salt
tool: hand foaming tool

1. In a small soup pan heat all the base ingredients. Note: If you are using coffee you can add it directly to the pan here. However if you are using fresh hot espresso you can add it last.

2. Stir all ingredients until simmering. Make sure the pumpkin dissolves into the base well and the spices don't clump. Add the spices last if you are having clumping issues. When mixture is at a low/med boil you can remove from heat, pour into a serving mug and set aside. Optional: I like to get my base mixture extra fluffy by whipping with my foaming wand a few times. A few nice bubble form..
