Nothing says fall more than pumpkin spice anything. It’s wonderful to reach for a hot mug of warming spices with a hint of pumpkin in this coffee alternative.
The ingredients used are Pumpkin Spice Sip Herbals, maple syrup, coconut milk and pumpkin puree. The Pumpkin Spice Sip Herbals can be substituted for 1/4 teaspoon Chicory, 1/4 teaspoon Dandelion Root, 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger and a pinch of cloves. Maple syrup is the sweetener of choice for this drink. It’s the perfect complement to the pumpkin spice flavor. However, you’re welcome to use honey as a substitute.
Make sure to use AIP-compliant coconut milk for this recipe. It should be made of just coconut and water. It’s best to read the ingredients on everything you buy because companies can and will change the ingredients without notice. And pumpkin puree is just cooked and mashed pumpkin. Make sure not to use pumpkin pie filling as that will contain ingredients that aren’t AIP compliant. If you happen to have cooked and mashed butternut squash, that would also be a good substitute.
If you don’t have a milk frother, you can just add all the ingredients to a mason jar, cover securely then shake. But a frother is ideal for blending the pumpkin puree.
- Add the Pumpkin Spice Sip Herbals to a measuring cup that’s suitable for hot water. Pour in ¾ cup of boiling water. Let sit for about 2 minutes.
- While the herbals are steeping, add coconut milk, pumpkin puree and maple syrup into a mug.
- When the herbals are done steeping, pour the water into the mug using a strainer to strain out the herbs.
- Using a milk frother, combine all the ingredients then serve.
