Last week in my CSA box there was a baking pumpkin. I had never actually baked a fresh pumpkin before. I was pretty shocked at how easy it was, not to mention all of the delicious possibilities!!! So to kick off my pumpkin experience, lets start with some good ol' caffeine!
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vanilla creamer
1 tbsp pumpkin (fresh or canned)
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 Tbsp Caramel Sauce
Sea Salt (or regular salt if you don't have any sea salt!)
In a small sauce pan combine milk, creamer, pumpkin and spice. Bring to a low boil. Remove from heat and pour into a blender. Pulse the blender a few times making it frothy (this step is optional, but I liked the frothiness) Pour frothy milk into your coffee mug and fill rest with coffee. Put a spoonful of cool whip on top an drizzle with caramel sauce. Sprinkle on sea salt and enjoy.
Stay tuned for more pumpkin goodness!
