2 Add 2-3 teaspoons of LC Pumpkin Spice Creamer to the espresso and mix.
1 Place milk in a microwave-safe measuring cup and microwave, uncovered, on high for 1 minute or until milk is hot and small bubbles form around edge of the cup.
2 Take a metal whisk and whisk the milk vigorously by holding whisk handle loosely between palms and quickly rubbing hands back and forth. Remove foam to a small measuring cup as it forms, until foam measures 1/3 cup; set aside.
