It’s Thanksgiving again in Canada and at this time of year pumpkin spice baked goods and drinks are found just about everywhere.
Pumpkin spice drinks can be costly but there is a simple solution. Cost effective pumpkin spice syrup is easy to make and when added to your drinks can give you the fall taste you love at a fraction of the cost.
It contains only 5 ingredients and can be stored for up to a week in the refrigerator. You can use fresh or canned pumpkin. Just make sure if you use the fresh version that the vegetable has been processed and is very smooth
Cost effective pumpkin spice syrup can also be used in baked goods. Try making a pumpkin muffin and infusing the centre with the filling after baking. You might have to thicken the recipe a bit more to do this.
You can use the syrup in many drinks. Try adding a tablespoon to your coffee or making a quick latte. I like heating almond or cashew milk and adding a tablespoon to the hot mixture.
If you like a stronger spice flavour simply add more of the syrup to your beverage.
Many people like their coffee to be flavoured. Pumpkin Spice creamer flavours coffee with a taste of the fall. Creamy pumpkin mixed with pumpkin pie spice makes this drink something to be enjoyed throughout the season. You might want to double the recipe as it goes fast.
Fall is here and the trees are beginning to turn colour. At this time of year the restaurant chains come out with everything pumpkin and I feel like baking some sweet treats. Pumpkin Spice muffins are warm and fragrant. They’re the perfect treat for a cold windy day. Enjoy them with butter or pumpkin butter.
