Poor Man’s Pumpkin Spice Latte

For day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas, I’m sharing my version of a fall favourite at the ‘Buck. It is super rich and festive tasting, for a fraction of the markup, and it’s topped with a deliciously frothy cream cheese whip. This recipe will make a cozy serving for two. You’ll need:
  • 2 cups of strong coffee
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 6 tbsp. of canned pumpkin pie filling
  • 4 tbsp. of sugar
  • 1 tsp. of cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup of whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp. of Philadelphia Whipped cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp. of sugar

Combine your milk, 4 tbsp sugar, pumpkin and spices in a small pot, and whisk them until hot and frothy, but not boiling.

Meanwhile, whip your cream until it is stiff, then add in the cream cheese and sugar.

When your milk mixture is nice and hot, divide the coffee between two large mugs, and pour the milk mixture over top.

Top each serving with a healthy dollop of cream, and garnish with a dusting of cinnamon if you like.

While sipping away on your budget latte, you can dream up all the lovely gifts you’ll buy with the money you’ve saved.

Stay tuned tomorrow for a fun do-it-yourself gift for friends and family who envy your chops in the kitchen.
