It’s all the rave right now … pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING! There’s pumpkin muffins, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin cake and even pumpkin flavored OREO’s!
Well, we have just the drink for all of you pumpkin-loving, pumpkin-craving foodies out there … and this is something that is JUST IN TIME for the cooler weather.
WARM PUMPKIN SPICE DRINK
This drink tastes just like pumpkin pie in a mug! And … it’s caffeine free, so the kids can enjoy!
Ingredients for ONE SERVING:
–1 cup whole milk, heated until very warm (we recommend Homestead Creamery milk … from Wirtz, Virginia)
–1/4 canned pumpkin puree
–1 tablespoon sugar
–1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
–1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
–Whipped cream, optional
*To make this dairy-free, you can use unsweetened almond milk or soy milk.
*Too sweet? You can adjust the sweetness of the drink by changing the amount of sugar and/or pumpkin puree
*Mix it with coffee to make this a Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Now, sit back with a book, a warm blanket and …. RELAX. Or, make a batch up for the whole family and pop in a movie and ENJOY! And, if you enjoy the taste of the Homestead Creamery milk that we suggested, you are in luck! Throughout Southwest and Central Virginia, many of the Homestead Creamery milks, ice creams and cheeses can be found at your local grocery store. Or, you can have it delivered right to your house!
