In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, milk, syrup, and vanilla extract. Cook, whisking constantly, until mixture starts to steam.

Remove from heat and pour mixture into a blender. Cover, hold the lid on tightly, and blend for about 15 seconds, or until frothy.

Make the coffee.

Divide coffee and milk mixture between two mugs.
