1 cup whole milk, heated until very warm
1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Whipped cream, optional
Cinnamon, optional


Place all ingredients in blender. Remove center cap from the lid of the blender and use a folded kitchen towel to loosely hold the cap over the hole in a manner that steam can escape. Turn on the blender to low and then increase it to high. Blend ingredients until frothy. Transfer mixture to a mug, top with whipped cream, if desired, and sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon.
