I don’t ever eat cereal but I will pour almond milk over oats, I use quinoa as a grain with some fruit on top, or just plain cut up fruit in a bowl. Instead of adding regular almond milk (or any other kind of non-dairy milk) why not spice it up a bit with a different flavor of milk that you can easily make at home. This recipe is perfect for this time of year!
This recipe was adapted from here:
- 2 cups almond milk
- 1/2 cups + 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar OR 1-2 dates
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
This is such a simple recipe and technically you can drink it right out of the blender like a smoothie. The original recipe suggests pouring it over cereal. But there is SO much you can do with this milk. Since I don’t eat cereal, I’ve poured it over granola that had raw oats and dried berries in it and I added a sliced banana to that and I loved it!
I’ve also poured the pumpkin milk over 2 sliced bananas. (Hard to tell those are bananas in the picture.)
Another time I chopped up a large apple and poured the pumpkin milk on top:
Another thing you can do is add a handful of spinach to get some extra nutrients without affecting the taste of the pumpkin milk. Just know that your pumpkin milk won’t be as lovely a color which is why I didn’t add any for the pictures above.
Can you think of any other ways to use this pumpkin milk?
