As the end of the year draws near I am beginning to lament the disappearance of Starbucks in my semi-local shopping centre. I’ll take real coffee over the Star anyday, but I was truly looking forward to Christmas gingerbread lattes… however I am now hearing about an offering that I haven’t yet seen in Australia. The pumpkin latte.
And so I will, when I have time, make my own. Because the concept of the pumpkin latte is entirely and I mean ENTIRELY convincing.
*An update on the above, I made a rushed version yesterday. It really wasn’t all that good. Over sweet for one, and in that way quite a good Starbucks rip off, and it was very stringy although did improve after I strained it. I think a Jap pumpkin is in order rather than a Kent pumpkin and less sweetness. Also probably didn’t help that all my stomach really wanted just then was food rather than yet another hot drink… it’s a pitty that hot drinks aren’t more nutrious really, because I could probably resemble super woman about now.
You are mad! My tastebuds are just a little tentative!
I’m sorry you didn’t get to try it. Pumpkin Spice latte is my wife’s favorite. They’ve just added Eggnog and Gingerbread latte’s at Starbucks here. Eggnog’s my favorite.
I’m with you though, I’ll take real coffee over Starbucks any day.
oh wow. that recipe looks quite exciting… let me know when you try it!
