Crock-Pot Pumpkin Spiced Lattes

It's National Coffee Day today and what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't blog about coffee today, especially with "coffee" in my title!  I love coffee.  I love the smell, the taste, the various blends, but mostly I love the fuzzy feeling it gives me when it is just mentioned.  I love coffee! 
That being said...  I recently had a Pumpkin Party with some girlfriends where we all made various pumpkin or apple recipes.  I tried several new recipes, but one that I was super excited to try was this one.  Pumpkin Spiced Lattes!  We have Starbucks here, but they are super limited on the amount of pumpkin spiced goodness that they get, so you have to get it while you can.  But have a found the answer to such a problem?  I think I have!  These mugs full of happiness were just as good as the S-bucks and I knew exactly what was in them.  And you know what else?  They were super easy to make and made my house smell delicious!  Give them a try!

6 cups of milk (I used whole)
4-6 cups of strongly brewed coffee
1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
1/2 cup of vanilla extract
 1/2 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
3 cinnamon sticks

In your crock pot, combine the milk and coffee.
Whip together the pumpkin, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon and pour into the crockpot. Mix together well. Toss in 3-4 cinnamon sticks.
Cover the crockpot, and cook on high for 2 hours.
Ladle into cups, top with whipped cream, cinnamon or just insert a straw to the pot and drink!

*If you don't have a large group, you could easily halve the recipe.

Sooo Good!
