I would like to take a moment to say hello to all of my new friends!
I also want to say “Thank You,” to all of my followers, both long timers and new. I enjoy sharing my recipes with you and am excited when someone lets me know they have tried it!
I want to share a photo of some fall foliage in my neighborhood. I love this season of the year and wish these colors were able to stay longer.
I made some Pumpkin Spice Scones, the other day. Let me tell you, they were wonderful. The recipe didn’t use the entire can of pumpkin, so not wanting to waste it, I stuck the extra pumpkin puree in the refrigerator. Every time I opened the door to the refrigerator, I saw the pumpkin puree! I kept trying to think of what to do with it.
My energy was sort of low yesterday afternoon and I thought, “I sure could use a cup of coffee! I should drive over to Starbucks and get one.”
Then the inspiration hit me! Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino!
That’s right, made at home and even better than Starbucks!
Please understand, my recipe is not an exact science. Please just use this as a basis and then use your own sense of taste as a judge of how much of any ingredient to add or subtract.
Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino
1/2 cup strong coffee
1/2 cup Half and Half (could use skim or regular milk)
4 Tablespoons Pumpkin Puree
1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
2 -4 teaspoons Sugar (could use honey, agave, splenda)
Ice (about 1 cup)
Toss it all in the blender. Let it blend for a couple of minutes and then taste it. If necessary, add more of whatever you like.
I hope you enjoy this! I know fall is here and it is cooler, but we still have a few warm days and this frappuccino will hit the spot!
Don’t forget to come back and link up to Foodie Friends Friday tonight. The party starts at 9:00 pm! Bring up to three of your favorite crock pot (or any) recipes!
