Highly caloric coffee drinks don’t fit my lifestyle. But I love the idea of a creamy, pumpkin flavored, steaming, strong coffee in the fall. Not to worry! I came up with my own 43 calorie drink that in my book, is way better than sucking down a 380 calorie Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.
PUMPKIN SPICE MACCHIATO LITE
2 teaspoons heavy cream
½ tsp sugar
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 double espresso brewed coffee
1. If you have an espresso machine, brew a double espresso.
2. Meanwhile, place 2 teaspoons of cream in the bottom of a teacup along with ½ teaspoon sugar and ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice.
3. Using a hand milk frothing tool, whip this until thick and creamy.
4. Pour espresso down the side into the whipped cream mixture. Top with an extra pinch of pumpkin pie spice.
