750ml whole milk, hot but not boiling

4 tsp caster sugar

½ tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground nutmeg

½ tsp ground ginger

½ tsp allspice

180ml freshly brewed strong coffee

Whipped cream to preference

  • Add the hot milk, caster sugar, vanilla extract and half of the pumpkin spice to a blender and mix until frothy.
  • Divide the liquid between three coffee mugs, leaving enough space to add a good amount of whipped cream later.
  • Add 60ml of freshly brewed, strong coffee to the mugs.
  • Add that last indulgent layer of whipped cream and finish with a sprinkling of the remaining pumpkin spice mix. Enjoy!
