Two problems with this: they are expensive ($3 a piece), and they can contain over 300 calories (for coffee? yes- crazy).
So, let's make a lower calorie, much cheaper version of our own, shall we? Feel free to use decaf coffee! I typically do not promote DRINKING your calories-- they can add up fast. But, the holidays are all about a little bit of EXTRAVAGANCE.
3 cups skim milk
1/4 cup pumpkin puree (canned or fresh)
3 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 cups strong brewed coffee
In a medium saucepan over medium heat combine milk, pumpkin puree, and sugar. Cook until steaming, stirring continually. Remove from heat.
Add vanilla and pumpkin pie spice and whisk until foamy.
Transfer 1 cup of mixture into each mug and then add 1/2 cup coffee. Sprinkle with cinnamon (optional).
