Waking up to pumpkin

I know some people get sick of pumpkin recipes during the fall, but not me.  Pumpkins and the color orange  remind me that it is fall and I love that!

I got this recipe for pumpkin spice latte from Cassie at Back to Her Roots.  It was incredibly simple (I’m talking mixing almond milk, pureed pumpkin and some coffee and spices simple) and made a lovely alternative to my Sunday cup of joe.

I got it all frothy using my new immersion blender (a present from N) and sprinkled pumpkin spices on top. They actually sell “pumpkin spices” at the grocery store which is a convenient mix of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and clove for us lazy folks.

Happy humpday!

PS. Though Nikko looks like she is tenderly giving N a kiss, she is actually just trying to figure out what he ate for lunch.

    Aren’t immersion blenders the best little gadgets!?
    I’m always tempted by the pumpkin lattes offered this time of year in the coffee shops, problem is I dislike coffee. Maybe I could make this with a strongly brewed black tea? mmm, Pumpkin Tea Latte 🙂

    It’s funny, I can never get myself to really use pumpkin in anything else than soup. I have to admit, that it’s just not that popular over here and I never ever had it once during my childhood. Pumpkin spice lattes seem very popular this year, I think I need to ger out of my soup rut.

    I fully embrace all squashes and I don’t think I’ll ever tire of them. Out of all the things I like to make, drinks are one of those things I tend to forget about. I really miss pumpkin spiced lattes, I’m going to try and remember to make one of those this weekend! Think it’ll work fine in a blender? The battery in my immersion crapped out.

      Yeah, you probably don’t even really need to blend it. A good thorough whisking with a fork would probably be okay since both things are just liquids more or less. The immersion blender just makes it all nice and frothy.
