Pumpkin Spiced Cappuccino

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!

Pumpkin Spiced Cappuccino - twocupsoflove.wordpress.comIngredients:

  • 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?

Mail and Treats!

Man, I love getting mail. Even if it is stuff I bought myself. The bottom two cookbooks are books I’ve been meaning to get for a while. An entire book devoted to vegan cheeses? Ok. Also, the top two are India travel books. Oh that’s right, I’M GOING TO INDIA FOR 4 MONTHS. I’ll be sure to update my blog whenever possible with culinary delights to tickle your senses.

I’m spending this long weekend at a friend’s cottage and felt the need to make treats! I made pumpkin chocolate chunk bars and brownies! I’m also making some salad rolls, a huge vat of peanut sauce for recreating the buddha bowl from Fresh, and some pancakes. It should be a delicious time!
