Vanessa's Crockpot Pumpkin Spiced Latte

It's Teach Me Tuesday and today I am sharing a fantastic fall recipe from my fabulous friend Vanessa!

Yesterday Vanessa sent me this recipe and I knew I HAD to share it!

Vanessa's Fall Crockpot Pumpkin Spiced Latte

2 cups milk
2T canned pumpkin
2T white sugar
2T vanilla
1/2 tsp pumpkin spice or if you don't have pumpkin spice use: 1/4 cinnamon, 1/8 tsp clove, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and a teeny bit of ground ginger.
1/2 cup brewed espresso or 3/4 cup strong brewed coffee

This will make enough for 2 people to have with a big mug. If you are having more friends over, adjust accordingly. I use a 4 quart crock pot. Add the coffee/espresso and milk to the crock pot. Whisk in the pumpkin, spices, sugar, and vanilla. cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Ladle into mugs, and garnish with whipped cream and additional cinnamon. I added a cinnamon stick to be fancy too. :)
Hope you enjoy! Thanks Vanessa!
