Whenever I think of fall I think of apples and pumpkins. I generally begin buying the pumpkin spice lattes when they come out in September and keep on getting them until they are gone in December. I couldn't wait to try making one for myself. I first brewed a cup of the pumpkin spice coffee to get a taste for it. It has a mild pumpkin flavor sprinkled with spices. It was great all on it's own!
When I started creating I knew I would be making these throughout the fall so I went with a "skinny" pumpkin spice latte. I used skim milk, fat free whipped cream, and sugar free caramel sauce. It tasted amazing! The latte was silky smooth and tasted like pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. The caramel gave it just a touch of sweetness. I gave it a generous topping of fat free whipped cream, topped the cream with caramel sauce, and sprinkled the whole thing with pumpkin pie spice. It was out of this world!
