Pumpkin Season

I love pumpkin.  You can ask my husband. He rolls his eyes and starts eating out this time of the year just to avoid all the pumpkin I cook up!

This morning, with a chill in the air, I dug into my pumpkin supply to make my first pumpkin treat of the year,  Pumpkin Spice Latte. The recipe comes from the Crock Pot Girls Facebook page (just look in the discussion boards for all kinds of yummieness!)

Pumpkin Spice Latte

1 1/2 - 2 cups of strongly brewed coffee (I used my Toddy system)
4 cups milk
4 T canned pumpkin puree
2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4-1/2 cup sugar (I used the full half cup)
3 T vanilla

Add the coffee and milk to your slow cooker. In a separate bowl, whisk pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, sugar and vanilla together. Add to coffee mixture and whisk again. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Whisk again, Add whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.

It makes enough to share. So invite a friend over and enjoy the fall! Have the leaves started to turn colors in your yard?


  1. Pam, I have not been able to smell or taste anything all week with this bug - and did not care. But today, you got me interested! I think I'm gonna go pick up some pumpkin.

  2. Deb, I am so sad you got sick at the end of a wonderful vacation! If you feel better, the latte is totally worth it.
