Flavors of Fall Week is sponsored by Millican Pecan and Door County Coffee but all opinions are 100% my own.
I drink coffee all year long. I used to laugh at people who would drink hot coffee in the summer until I became that person. About ten years ago I would start drinking hot coffee several days a week in the summer without it bothering me too much. Since J has come along you better believe I'm having a cup of coffee or a hot latte every single morning in order to get me up and going.
Now that fall is here I've been thinking about all the fun fall flavors and have been trying to come up with a new fall latte flavor. You all know I love my coffee machine since it froths milk and has a strong brew option to make espresso like coffee. We've tried out so many different flavored lattes over the last few months but this is the first fall we've had this machine.
After checking out what I had available I came up with a Pecan Spice Latte. Think cinnamon spiced coffee and cinnamon pecan milk all topped off with whipped cream and cinnamon pecans. Do I have your attention now? This awesome creation takes a little bit of planning since the milk has to sit but I've been tripling the recipe and just leaving the cinnamon pecan milk in the refrigerator to use for several days in a row.
I started this latte off by chopping up Millican Cinnamon Candied Pecans and putting them in the milk. I then let this mixture sit for 30 minutes to an hour and then strained out the pecans. The resulting milk is cinnamon spiced and has a lovely pecan flavor. I think heat up the milk and froth it to perfection.
Next you need to do a strong brew of a spiced coffee. I used Door County Coffee Autumn Spice which is full of spicy cinnamon. After it's brewed I mix in the brown sugar and then top it off with the milk. The result is a velvety spiced latte. After that you can top it however you want but I recommend you do whipped cream, cinnamon, and a few Millican Cinnamon Candied Pecans.
This is one of those lattes that smells and tastes like fall. It's perfect to drink on a cool fall morning because the spices warm me right up.
- 2 c. milk
- ¼ c. Millican cinnamon pecans, finely chopped
