Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice mix1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice mix
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk of choice (almond, soy, coconut, cashew)1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk of choice (almond, soy, coconut, cashew)
  • 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee, or 1-2 shots of espresso1/2 cup strong brewed

Instructions:

• In a small pot over medium heat, add the maple syrup and pumpkin puree. Stir, then add the pumpkin pie spice mix and the non-dairy milk. Warm, but do not bring to a boil.

• Once warm, turn off the heat and add the coffee (or espresso shots) and stir. Taste for sweetness: Add more maple syrup for a sweeter drink; I found 2 tablespoons to be just right.

• Pour into a mug and top with vegan whipped cream. Sprinkle a little more pumpkin pie spice mix on top if desired. Enjoy!

Substitutions & Tips:

  • Don’t have pumpkin spice mix? No worries! Use 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, along with a tiny pinch of ginger, nutmeg and cloves. You could even just use cinnamon if that’s all you have.
  • Use canned coconut milk for a richer beverage. I like to use a creamy milk such as cashew or soy, but any non-dairy milk you like will work.
  • You can use granulated organic sugar instead of maple syrup. Again, add sweetness to your liking, and be aware that if you are using a sweetened milk you will need even less added sweetener.

Enjoy, and Happy Fall!


Notes:

  1. If you want a really creamy and rich beverage, use canned coconut milk.
  2. To keep it caffeine free for kids, replace the 1/2 cup of coffee with more non-dairy milk.
  3. You can also just use organic granulated sugar instead of maple syrup, if that’s what you have. 
  4. Double, triple or quadruple the recipe to make enough for company!
  5. Don’t have pumpkin spice mix? Use this instead: 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and a tiny pinch of ginger, cloves and nutmeg. You can just use cinnamon if you’re short on spices!
