The Autumnal Equinox is officially upon us & thus it's time to embrace all things this glorious season has to offer. One of my favorite elements of Fall is the coziness it brings, in all of its different forms - cable knit sweaters, the crackling of fires in the fireplace & of course, a large mug filled with something rich & yummy. One particular warm beverage that I love to indulge in is the "No Coffee Pumpkin Latte". Since this drink is caffeine free, it's great for both adults & children (note: on occasion I'll add strong coffee to the mix & it tastes amazing). To try it yourself, follow the simple directions below:
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 quart milk
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Combine pumpkin, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla in a large saucepan over medium heat. Use a whisk to blend well. Heat to a simmer; do not boil. Serve warm.
Pour into a mug, curl up on the sofa, cover yourself with a blanket & relax!
