Reviews for Pumpkin Pie Latte
"Delicious! I replaced 1 cup of the milk with half and half."
"Not terrible, but not what I was expecting either. I agree with the reviewer who said they were expecting something a little richer... this just didn't have much flavor to me, sad to say."
"This is very tasty. There are a few other recipes that you can make with their "Easy Espresso" recipe- make sure you click on the link so you can see how to make it.My husband loves regular iced coffee, so I keep some prepared espresso in the fridge ( to a whole espresso recipe, add 1/3 c sugar if you're making this recipe), and he just adds 4 parts milk for every 1 part espresso."
"Delish. I don't have an expresso machine, so I just used regular coffee. I did increase the amount of pumpkin after taste testing it. Loved it"
"Really enjoyed this, it is nice to make your own instead of running to the coffee house. I increased the sugar a little bit because I like my coffee drinks sweet."
"Loved it. Next time I'll try it iced."
"Excellent. Next time I might add another Tbls. Of pumpkin just to intensify the pumpkin flavor. Both my husband and our park ranger loved it. EZ to make in the RV without a blender. Used full amount of vanilla, perfect. Rocky Knob VA park hosts."
"Absolutely delicious! I was looking for a healthier recipe than *bucks and this is perfect. I used an immersion blender and lowered the amount of vanilla, per other reviewer's suggestions."
"Here are all my notes: I didn't use the full 2 T. of vanilla. I actually didn't measure. I did up the sugar. Since I have an espresso machine, I didn't heat this mixture as stated. Here is what I did. I mixed everything together and blended with an immersable blender. Then I made the espresso. I pour the pumpkin milk into the frother and frothed the milk like I usually do when making my daily lattes. This is far better than Starbucks as they don't use pumpkin in their lattes. No spices at the bottom of my cup doing it this way."
"Do you Really mean 2 Tablespoons of vanilla! Sounds like a lot! I too would use Stevia instead of sugar. I may try this with pureed butternut squash. We have lots of it growing in our home garden."
"Excellent! I used skim milk and stivea instead to save on calories. My daughter begs me to make this for her each fall."
"This was very tasty. My husband and I both liked it. I ended up adding a bit more sugar to make it a little sweeter. Topped the whole drink with homemade whipped cream and it was perfect for any fall day!"
"Very tasty on a cold, winter day. Loved the spiced pumpkin flavor."
"I loved it until I got towards the bottom of the cup and had to deal with the texture of the pumpkin. That made the whole experience unenjoyable for me :("
"I found the link to make the Easy Espresso:http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Easy-Espresso I haven't made this yet, but plan to try it soon. I saw your post from awhile ago and didn't see where anyone had responded to your question. Hope this helps. Good luck!"
"Excellent! Only fill your blender about 1/3 fill of the steamy milk mixture tho - otherwise it will shoot out the top!Made this Thanksgiving morning and everyone raved about it! So good with our pumpkin muffins!"
"Perfect ending to our Thanksgiving feast! I made a decaf version because I'm pregnant, and it was delicious! Creamy, frothy, and just the right amount of pumpkin so it wasn't to overpowering. We will definately be making this again!"
"Very good taste like the one you get at Starbucks."
"I was impressed. Would make a again 4 sure."
"I would like to make this for Thanksgiving day. But I do not know what "easy expresso" is. Is it something I buy in a can and add water to it? I do not have an expresso machine. Please help."
"Excellent! I mixed in a little marshmallow creme with the cool whip on top."
"EXCELLENT! Love it. Substituted Diamond Brand Vanilla unsweetened Almond milk for the milk, and Sweet n low for the sugar. Left out the whipped cream and heated in microwave instead of on stove. Excellent. Tried whisking it, but the blender, as suggested, is best as it mixes the pumpkin more thoroughly. Will make it again many times!"
"Quick and delicious! Sure beats paying nearly $4 at a coffee shop. Thanks"
"i was very dissapointed, i was expecting the rich creamy flavor from our local coffee shops as is stated but it doesn't even come close i thought it was very bland."
"Wonderful! Thank you.... thank you!"
"Loved it and had Great Flavor!! Nice afternoon pick me up :)"
"soo good! My daughter said it was just like being at the coffee shop!"
"I haven't tried this yet, but it looks promising. Does the pumpkin blend in well?"
