Last night I was browsing through a great blog, Deliciously Organic, and came across a recipe for a Pumpkin Pie Shake. It looks delicious, but I have a bit of a cold and a terrible cough, therefore I went for something hot rather than cold.
So, this morning I altered the recipe a bit and made some Hot Pumpkin! (I don’t want to call it a latte or anything like that because there is no coffee or espresso in it, mainly almond milk and pumpkin)
- 2 cups of Almond Milk (I used unsweetened but you can use whatever you like)
- 1/4 cup of Pumpkin Puree
- 1/4 teaspoon of Pumpkin Spice
- 1/4 teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 3 teaspoons of Honey
- 1 packet of Stevia
*I actually didn’t measure my cinnamon or pumpkin spice, so feel free to add more or less if you want. The smoothie recipe also calls for 4 tablespoons of honey, but I felt that was a little much, so I reduced it to 3 teaspoons and then added a packet of stevia; you can sweeten it the way you like-that’s what I did!
All you really have to do is put the ingredients in a small pot, put the stove on medium to high heat, and whisk together as it heats up. When it’s hot enough for you, pour into a big mug and enjoy! I think this would also be good with a touch or two of cocoa powder…feel free to experiment!
