I'm not a coffee drinker, so that's not a temptation, but sometimes I want a fun warm drink, and I rarely make anything at home besides tea or hot chocolate with marshmallows. But I was excited when I saw a simple but unique beverage idea in a magazine: pumpkin pie cocoa! Here is the recipe adapted for one serving:
- 1 cup low-fat milk
- 1/4 cup hot cocoa mix
- 1 heaping Tbsp. canned pure pumpkin puree
- 3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 cup whipped cream
I think this drink cost me about 25 cents. Now that I can handle! =) And even though coffee is not my favorite, I did make this other pumpkin drink a few times last winter when friends came over, and it was also delicious!
What's your favorite drink on a cold day? And are you more of a coffeeshop person, or a make-it-at-home person?
