A sip of fall that you can make at home!

I have to be honest: my love for pumpkin flavored foods and drinks does not start or stop with the autumn months. I can typically be found enjoying various pumpkin-flavored treats year round. In fact, these pumpkin spice muffins are baked in regular rotation at my house.  I make up a big batch every month or so and freeze them.  The kids and I pull them out for easy snacks and breakfasts.

The recipe I am going to share with you today is no exception.  Sure, once the leaves start to change colors and the air turns crisp and cool, we might think about a coveted pumpkin spice latte and head to the local coffee shop to buy one.  But after you see how easy they are to make, you can enjoy this flavorful drink any time you’d like (for a lot less money)!

This is a really delicious and versatile drink, and it’s so easy to make.  The taste reminds me of pumpkin pie mixed with coffee. You can serve this drink on its own or with cookies or Biscotti. It makes a great after dinner drink, or dessert drink. This pumpkin spice latte would also make a great surprise around the campfire! Give it a try and see what you think.
