Slow Cooker Surprise: Pumpkin Spice Latte
Who Knew You Could Make Latte in A Slow Cooker?
"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!"
Use a 2-quart slow cooker.
Add coffee/espresso and milk to the stoneware.
Whisk in pumpkin, spices, sugar, and vanilla.
Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.
Whisk again. Ladle into mugs, and garnish with whipped cream and additional cinnamon. Add a cinnamon stick for a fanciful effect.
