"The recipe really does taste like the real thing, except it doesn't leave a fluorescent orange stain when you dribble it down your sweater. I also learned that coffee-house pumpkin lattes may contain gluten, which is another reason to make them yourself!"

-Stephanie O'Dea


  • 1/2 cup brewed espresso or3/4 cup strong coffee
  • 2 cups milk (preferably 1 percent)
  • 2 tablespoons canned puréed pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • (or: 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon cloves, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, tiny pinch of ginger)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • whipped cream (optional)
  • Cooking Directions

    Use a 2-quart slow cooker.

    Add coffee/espresso and milk to the stoneware.
