Who's stoked about pumpkin spice anything?! Funny enough- most pumpkin spice products don't contain any pumpkin at all. It is generally the spice mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves/allspice (or a synthetic version of this) that we crave. And all because those spices are generally linked to positive and cozy memories!
This weekend, we tried making a pumpkin spice coffee creamer (kinda like a latte) and used real pumpkin because pumpkin is full of vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants! Here is what I came up with:
- 2 cups almond milk (or other milk)
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 TBSP cinnamon
- 3/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp cloves
- dash of ginger
- 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
Mix in a blender until well combined. Pour desired amount into coffee and then add maple syrup to sweeten to your preference. Store the rest in the refrigerator for later use!
O and yes, the pumpkin will separate out, so mix well before you use it again. And, mix into your coffee well too!
Hope you enjoy!
