Cooler weather marks the change of season, from summer to pumpkin spice season. That’s right, it has taken over fall. I’m not willing to completely accept the cold weather, so I think that a cold spiced bevvy is a good compromise. Enter the Pumpkin Spiced Cappuccino (See what I did there? sp-iced? eh? eh?). I served mine in a wine glass, because not only do I like to feel fancy sometimes, but I also have a cat who has the cutest skill involving his paw, a table ledge and any glass he can find, which has been limiting my glassware choice lately.
Behold, the pumpkin spiced cappuccino!
- 1 c Natura Cappuccino Soy Milk (could also use milk+coffee+sweetener)
- 1/4 c pureed pumpkin
- 6 ice cubes
- 1/4 t of “pumpkin pie” spice (could use a mix of fave spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, etc.)
Blend everything together in a blender until smooth.
My favourite spice mix is the “Everything Nice” spice blend by The Epicentre. I love this company, and they are based out of my hometown. They have some other good, really fresh, flavourful and fragrant spices, too.
Bonus: The Cat in Question, Troy (destroying a shoe)
Does anyone else have a destructive cat, or is it just me?
