Pumpkin in My Cup

DSCN5119

You knew this one was coming, didn’t you? I mean, I’m pretty sure, that many moons ago, this is where the pumpkin craze began. So, I guess at this moment, I would like to give a shout out to Starbucks! Funny thing is, in my Starbucks hay day, I NEVER even ordered a Pumpkin Spice Latte. I was always more of a plain latte type of girl. (Except of course during red cup season…peppermint mochas…but that, of course, is a different season and a different blog post!) The only place I have ever even had a PSL was at home. Made by yours truly.

So here you have it, Pumpkin Spice Latte’s ala Karen.

Homemade almond milk + coffee concentrate + pumpkin puree + dates + cinnamon + nutmeg + ginger = heaven on earth

Take the chill off the almond milk and coffee if needed (I had just made my almond milk, so it was already warm). Assemble ingredients in blender…

and blend up a PSL storm!

Sprinkle with cinnamon!

 

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte

1 c. almond milk (homemade will really knock this out of the ballpark…recipe here)

3/4 coffee concentrate (I always have cold pressed coffee in the fridge…recipe here)

2 T. pumpkin puree

2 dates

spices to taste: I used cinnamon (3 shakes), nutmeg (1 shake), and ginger (1 quick shake).

Warm milk and coffee if needed. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend away until the dates are not visible. You will have a nice frothy topping without the use of any type of whip!
