Second Step
Once the coffee is ready use a blender to mix with the pumpkin puree, spices, vanilla extract, and maple syrup.

Third Step
Use your espresso machine or (saucepan over a medium flame) to warm up milk and stevia (or syrup)

Fourth Step
Once milk and stevia comes to a simmer add to blender and stir on high to create a foamy milk. Let it sit for a minute.

Fifth Step
Separate liquid from the foam with a spoon, and add a sprinkle of pumpkin spice or Coconut sugar on top.

Enjoy!
