Could anything be more synonymous with fall than the creamy, spicy flavor of pumpkin? Bring that memorable fall taste to a mug near you with this easy recipe for a pumpkin latte.

What makes this recipe unique is the addition of pumpkin puree in lieu of pumpkin syrup. Pumpkin is a nutritional power house containing fiber, potassium, iron and vitamin A. So in addition to being delicious, this seasonal sip is actually good for you.

One of the best parts about making this at home is that you can adjust the ingredients. I like a strong latte with less milk and sugar. Need a caffeine-free version? Leave out the coffee: it's like pumpkin pie in a mug. Or take your latte to the next level by spiking it with a shot of rum at your next tailgate or fall gathering.
