The sweet, cinnamon-y taste of pumpkin pie in a chilled, caffeinated drink… Yes, pumpkin spiced lovers – this is the ultimate afternoon pick-me-up that requires no trip to the coffee shop! This is especially refreshing on those warmer days of autumn that have us still wearing summer clothes.
Not only is this beverage sweet, delicious and caffeinated, but it’s super easy and quick to make, too! This is how I do it:
- Combine the milk, pureed pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, sweetener of choice, vanilla extract, coffee, and salt via high speed blender (I used a small bullet blender) for about 20 seconds.
- Pour into a glass filled with ice cubes.
- Enjoy the taste of sweet, pumpkin, coffee fantasticness!
