Pumpkin Spice Latte w/ Pumpkin Pie Whip Cream- Recipe!

I love pumpkin spice lattes. I hate spending almost $5 a pop. Therefore, I decided to try and make my own at home. Because, I want one every day if I have the choice, and I want it for a good deal. Plus, what would be a better thing to serve to a bunch of friends at a brunch or play date than one of these puppies?
I tried out several recipes online, then just decided to go for it on my own. So, after about 4 trials I think I finally found the magic concoction. The bonus is that it is much less processed than the Starbucks kind, so what you are drinking is much healthier. Plus, you can add any type of milk substitute you want (I prefer almond milk). 

My husband had the fancy idea to make homemade pumpkin pie whip cream to adorn the top. It is fabulous. Just perfect. 

You ready for yours? Here is the recipe! Enjoy this special treat and feel good knowing you saved some money, and can now make this for friends, too! 
P.S.- I was inspired by my friend over at Lattes and Love to make this drink. Her blog is super cute. Check it out. Every time I visit her blog I want to have coffee because of her blog name. Genius. 
Pumpkin Spice Latte with Pumpkin Pie Whipped Cream
Serves 2 (double recipe for more).
Whip cream makes enough for about 8, store in airtight container. It stays good for about a week. 
***Remember this is made with pure pumpkin and not processed, so drink it while it is warm. If you wait too long to drink it may separate! Although I doubt you will take long to drink it! 
Pumpkin Spice Latte Ingredients
1 cup milk (or milk substitute)
1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons sugar or honey (add more if you like it sweet!)
1 cup strong coffee or 2 shots espresso
Pumpkin Pie Whip Cream Ingredients
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons honey (add more for sweeter)
1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Directions:
For whip cream: 
Use a mixer or fold by hand until whip cream is thick and fluffy. I used my high setting on my mixer for about 5 minutes. Add pumpkin, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and spice after whip cream has the right texture. Fold in by hand or mix on low until well blended. 

For latte: In a small pot, heat milk over medium low. Add pumpkin puree, spice, and sugar and stir well. Let cook on medium low heat for about 5 minutes, until well blended. Taste to make sure it is as sweet as you like it! 
Pour directly over espresso or coffee in mug. Add a dollop of delicious whip cream! Sprinkle cinnamon on top if desired.

    Ooo! Scrumptious! I can’t bring myself to spend five bucks a pop, so I deny myself. An at home version sounds just the ticket. I LOVE that your husband helped with the whipped cream. A true collaboration.
