Pumpkin Milk

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!

Pumpkin Milk

This recipe was adapted from here:

Ingredients:

  • 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?

Enjoy!
