I love all things pumpkin as long as it's not pie and this just might be my new favorite. It's like fall's version of summers strawberry milk. I might have to make a big batch of this Pumpkin Milk designated just for sipping!
The perfect blend!
This is a quick to make slightly sweet milk. I simply bring some milk, pumpkin puree, and a little sweetened condensed milk to a simmer, let it steep, then strain and cool. I could probably just drink it straight, but it is a fantastic compliment to my Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte.
Feel free to use any milk you like, any type will work if you want to make this dairy-free. I have even seen some dairy-free condensed milk options out there. If you are dairy-free you might have seen them, and they may also be available at your local health food store.
I love the sweet pure flavor that the pumpkin gives and the warmth of the spices. If you need a good tutorial on How to Roast a Pumpkin, take a look at my tutorial HERE. I usually roast 2-3 pumpkins a season and use the pulp for all my fall baking.
Make this delicious recipe to pair with some of my very favorite pumpkin recipes. The Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte would pair fantastically with my Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls or Pumpkin Spice Knotty Buns. I have a great batch of pumpkin recipes on my site.
If you want a little something savory, my Pumpkin Sage Risotto or Pumpkin Beer Cheese Lasagna are great choices. I also have THE BEST Pumpkin Pancakes that will have you falling for fall every day! One of my favorites might just be the Soy Sauce Pumpkin Seeds that my friend handed down to me and was her mother's recipe.
And another great drink to make using my Pumpkin Milk is this delicious Pumpkin Spice White Russian that is perfect for fall brunch!
