I'm amazed at how superior your vanilla is!

I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

Pumpkin Pie Latte



Pumpkin Pie Latte



3 tablespoons canned pumpkin*

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

12 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)**

1 cup whole milk (or evaporated milk, adds great character!)

1 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract

12 shots espresso

Whipped cream, nutmeg (optional) or pumpkin pie spice


In a small saucepan, combine pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, sugar and whole milk; heat gently, stirring, until hot. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract. Pour into mug and pour espresso over. Top with whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg. Makes one serving.


*A simpler solution would be to purchase Pumpkin Pie Filling (it is pre-spiced, while the pumpkin puree is “plain.” That way, you could eliminate the spices altogether in the recipe.

** Start with 1 tablespoon and increase if needed to balance flavors.

Look Delicious?
