Pumpkin Spiced Milk

Pumpkin Spiced Milk is a fall twist on my popular Spiced Milk recipe. Full of fall goodness, pumpkin, cinnamon, maple, and nutmeg sweeten the milk to create your new favorite coffee creamer.

Ingredients for Pumpkin Spiced Milk

2 cups milk
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 Tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp ground ginger
kitchen string*
cheesecloth**

Make the Spice Pouch:

Place 2 – 4”x4” squares of fine mesh cheesecloth together (or 1 coffee filter) and set on the counter.

Place cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger in the middle of the cheesecloth. Stir gently to combine the spices.

Gather all sides of the cheesecloth together, forming a little pouch.

Wrap a few inches of kitchen string around the cheesecloth, staying just at the top of where the spices are.

Tie string tightly and double knot so the spices can’t escape.

Set your spice pouch aside. 

Pile of spices on 2 layers of cheese cloth.

Make the milk:

Place milk, maple syrup, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.

Warm the mixture, stirring occasionally, until syrup has dissolved and milk is hot but not bubbling or boiling. 

Whisk in pumpkin puree.

Remove milk from heat and add spice pouch to the hot milk mixture.

Gently push it down into the milk until the spices inside the pouch have been submerged.

(The top of the cheesecloth/coffee filter will stick up from the milk. That’s ok, just make sure those spices are below the surface.) 

Add the spice pouch to the pumpkin milk.

Let steep for 1-2 hours while the milk cools. 

Remove spice pouch from cooled milk. Gently squeeze to remove liquid from the cheesecloth/coffee filter and spices. Dispose of spice pouch.

Store milk in the refrigerator. 

Notes on Pumpkin Spiced Milk

  • If you don’t have kitchen string on hand, use some white thread or unflavored dental floss to tie the spice pouch together. 
  • A coffee filter can be substituted for the cheesecloth, just make sure to bundle it carefully so it doesn’t rip when bundling.

Pumpkin Spiced Milk pouring into a cup of coffee

Miel Milk

Cafe miels are delicious, but getting to a coffee shop isn’t always an option. This miel milk will make your home-brewed coffee taste like a coffee house treat.  

Ingredients

4 cups milk
½ cup honey
1 cinnamon stick* 
Strong brewed coffee

Warm milk over medium-low heat. You want the milk hot, but not bubbling.

Whisk in the honey until it’s dissolved.

Remove from heat.

Break the cinnamon stick in half and toss it in the hot milk mixture.

Allow cinnamon to infuse while the mixture cools to room temp. 

Add to your favorite strong brewed coffee to taste.

Store mixture in the refrigerator.

Note: You can leave in the cinnamon stick pieces or toss them out before storing the milk. 

Tips on Miel Milk

If you don’t have a cinnamon stick

Place 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon in the middle of a small piece of cheesecloth. Carefully gather the edges of the cheesecloth, making sure the cinnamon stays in the middle. Tie the cheesecloth tightly shut with kitchen string and add to the mixture to infuse. 

If you don’t have cheesecloth on hand…

Use a paper coffee filter. Place 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon in the middle of the coffee filter. Carefully fold and wrap the coffee filter over the cinnamon several times – making sure the cinnamon stays in the middle – until you have a small packet. Wrap a small piece of kitchen string around all sides of the packet and tie off. (See photo.) Add to the milk mixture to infuse. 

If you don’t have kitchen string

Use unflavored dental floss. (Seriously!)
