Pumpkin Spice Steamers
Warm and foamy with just the right amount of spice. . . A perfect way to start or end to a fall day. The recipe is simple – milk, flavored syrup, a whisk (or handheld foamer) and a bit of whipped cream. While you can use nonfat milk – the higher the fat content, the more luscious the end product.
  1. Determine the amount you want to make – I usually figure 12 ounces of milk for an adult serving - 8 ounces is plenty for a child.
  2. Pour milk into a saucepan. For each cup of milk, use 2-3 tablespoons of syrup (for 12 ounces, I like 4 tablespoons) – but suit to your taste. Stir to combine.
  3. Place the pan over medium heat. If you want frothy milk, whisk constantly while the milk comes to temperature. If you just want flavored milk, stir occasionally – watching to make sure that the milk does not come to a boil.
  4. Pour the warmed milk into mugs. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg.
  5. Enjoy.
