Because I'm watching my calorie intake I used fat free evaporated milk (for the same creamy texture but with half the fat) and Truvia sweetener. This was pretty good. NOTE: I have a Keurig machine. What I did was pour the evaporated milk Truvia and pumpkin pie spice into the bottom of the coffee cup then just brewed the coffee over the ingredients in the cup. No need to microwave. Read More

I thought this tasted okay. I followed the recipe exactly too using full fat half and half and regular sugar. The end result was it was just kind of watered down tasting. I think pumpkin latte made with espresso and steamed milk and then topped with whipped cream is just so much better. Also unless your microwave is super powerful or you use blazing hot coffee there is no way this will be a hot cup of coffee in 15 seconds. It should take closer to a minute with my microwave anyhow.

Picked up a Fancy-Shmancy Pumpkin Latte last week at a Coffee Shop. I had a craving the following morning and happened upon this recipe. Very comparable and so good! I have tried this recipe with the flavored creamers such as Sugar-free Hazelnut Sugar-free Vanilla thus eliminating the need for the sugar in this superb latte. Also the flavored creamers give it an extra touch of richness. Read More

I found this recipe and instantly thought how perfect it would be to make for my fiancée. He is a coffee addict. I also thought that I might like to try it too. I love anything pumpkin and am always looking for the next pumpkin recipe. However I am do not like coffee so this recipe for me was kind of a disappointment. I followed the measurements that were listed for the half and half sugar and pumpkin pie spice; however it was hard to taste anything over the strong coffee taste. I would suggest doubling the measurements just to have it taste more like pumpkin and to be sweeter. I used my keurig coffee brewer for this recipe. I believe that it was way easier. I just mixed the ingredients in one cup and then brewed the coffee right into that cup. Also I used regular whipped cream in a tub than in a can. I have always that whipped cream from a can tastes funny. To me the best part was to add a huge heaping spoon full of whipped cream to my latte. My fiancée gave his approval for this recipe and thought that it was absolutely delicious. I guess it just depends on how much you like coffee. Read More

I used Monk Fruit sweetener to make it sugar free and added a splash of vanilla. The only negative was that the spices do not dissolve and my last few sips were gritty. Other than that it was a nice treat! Read More

This is exactly how I fix my morning coffee (minus the pumpkin pie spice) using stevia to equal the sugar amount so I knew I would like the basic recipe. The pumpkin pie spice does give this coffee a little flavor but the downside is that the spices all collect in the bottom of the cup making it impossible to drink down to the last drop. It is easy though as the title of the recipe suggests. Read More

This was okay. I might try it again if I don't have any flavored creamer. I think it might be better to put the pumpkin pie spice in with the grounds and then brew the coffee. I tried another recipe that way and I really liked it. Read More
