According to New York Magazine, pumpkin is the new bacon and the Pumpkin Spiced Latte is really trending this fall. With the return of Starbucks’ seasonal favorite and slew of imitation recipes making the rounds, I decided I best jump on the bandwagon and make my very own pumpkin spice latte jello. More like a custard than a jello, it is made with milk, pumpkin, and coffee. Allspice and cinnamon give it a cozy, warm flavor and whipped cream rounds it out. And best part is that 4 servings of this jello mold will cost you less than a trip to Starbucks. Happy Fall and Happy Halloween!
3 tablespoons (3 envelopes) of unflavored gelatin powder
4 cups milk
1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup canned pumpkin
3 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup of strong brewed coffee
Whipped cream, to garnish
In a saucepan, sprinkle gelatin evenly over the milk and allow the gelatin to absorb the milk for 2 minutes. Whisk gelatin into the milk while bringing it to a boil, careful not to let the milk boil over. Whisk in the pumpkin and sugar and cook on medium heat stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, allspice, cinnamon, and coffee. Refrigerate until it cools and begins to thicken. Stir again and gently spoon into individual sized molds. Refrigerate overnight. Unmold and garnish with whipped cream.
