Ingredients You Will Need:

1/4 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
1 cup of milk
1-2 shots of espresso (i.e. The amount of espresso is up to you and your coffee drinking needs. The more shots of espresso you have in a drink, the more caffeine it will be and the stronger the coffee taste will be. The less espresso, the sweeter the drink will be.) 

Pour your canned pumpkin and milk into a small sauce pan. Stir until fully blended. Then add your vanilla syrup and pumpkin spice. Heat the mixture on a low heat while stirring occasionally. Stir and heat until steam and foam start to appear.

Pour your pumpkin flavored mixture into a tall cup and then pour your espresso over the mixture. Add a dash of pumpkin spice and then add the vanilla flavored coffee cream. You can also add whipped cream to the top of your drink, though this is optional.
