How is Fall treating you all?? As always, America has gone into Pumpkin Frenzy. All i see is pumpkins and more pumpkins everywhere!! You can say i am joining the bandwagon!!! Last week, some of us had Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. Here is a very frank review- it was very very sweet. I doubt there was pumpkin in it. I am assuming there was some artificial flavor and it was kind of fake. That being said, there were others who totally enjoyed getting their sugar fix of the day. Some one even commented, I bet this is the most popular Starbucks drink among-st girls right now. Hell No!!! Not me!!!
I have experimented and come up with this super easy recipe which needs just minimal ingredients. And guess what, this drink is already gluten free and can be made vegan also.
Once the tea was ready, after just one sip, we kind of looked at each other. No questions asked, there was cow's milk by next day in the refrigerator. No offence my vegan friends. I still buy Almond milk every week for smoothies. Smoothies are best with dairy free milk and we like them that way. How do you use them? Shoot me a comment below.
Home-made 1 tsp pumpkin spice mix is 1/4th tsp ground nutmeg, 1/4th tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4th tsp ground ginger, 1/4th tsp ground cloves.
