Pumpkin Spice Frappuccinos are perfect for any time of the year, but I love them the most in the fall.  There is something about the scent of pumpkin and spices that warms me up!
 
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.

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!

    What a wonderful way to use up leftover pumpkin! I hate that most pumpkin recipes use 1 cup of pumpkin. Then your left with too much to throw away, but too little to make another recipe.
    Sounds delicious!

    Fall colours in the US always seem to be much more vibrant than here in my part of Australia. I wouldn’t lament the passing of Summer so much if we had beautiful visages like that to look at !

    That frap idea is pure genius !
