Cinnamon-Spiced Pumpkin Latte

My version is 1pp/approx.60kcal

(3pp/approx 150kcal

if you double the suggested serving size).


***


YOU WILL NEED : (Per serving)


30g pumpkin flesh

1 teaspoon water

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon artificial granular sweetener

100ml skimmed or soya milk

1 single or double shot espresso

(according to your personal taste)

or

a shot-size cup of instant coffee mixed with hot water to your desired strength


***


Cut the pumpkin flesh into small cubes.

Add a teaspoon of water and cover.

Cook on high in the microwave for 1-2 minutes until soft enough to mash. Add the cinnamon and sweetener to your personal taste.


Pop the pumpkin mixture into a tall container. Heat the milk until almost boiling, then add to the mixture. Blend until really smooth and frothy.


The milky mixture will turn a beautiful apricot-tinged colour.


Pour into your serving glass and gently add the shot of hot coffee.


If you blended for long enough, this lovely frothy top will appear naturally.

Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon and garnish simply with some tiny strips of pumpkin shell...


...or a slice cut from the top of the pumpkin.


If you really have the carving bug like me, make a dinky little coffee cup and saucer as a funky decoration!

(The best pumpkins for these are the tiny munchkin variety).
