Add 2 Tbsp. instant coffee, 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar, ¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice, and 2 Tbsp. hot water to a bowl.
Whip the mixture 3 to 6 minutes with a mixer until it’s pale and fluffy, similar to the stiff peak stage of whipping eggs. Or it is possible to do this by hand with a whisk, it will just take a while longer.
After you’ve whipped your coffee, you can add 1 Tbsp. of canned pumpkin here (optional) for a more distinct pumpkin flavor and color. Blend in the puree just until combined so you don’t lose the fluffiness.
Fill a glass with your milk of choice. I use lactose free half & half. Gently spoon the whipped mixture on top. Admire your beautiful creation then give it a stir. Enjoy!
