This is a warm and creamy rich pumpkin drink that taste like a Starbucks® pumpkin latte, but with NO caffeine. It is very kid-friendly or great at the midday office holiday party.

My kids and I loved this. Loved. I will admit I did add coffee to mine but the kids drank theirs as is and asked for the rest of what was left in the saucepan. A drink. Read More

Not so great for me - maybe b/c I substituted 1/2 cinnamon & 1/2 pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon? I LOVE pumpkin but just not this particular drink... Read More

Tasty! My kids were really excited to drink this. It's smooth and tastes like a blended slice of pumpkin pie! One thing I noticed- my cinnamon didn't mix in very well since I just added it to the saucepan. Next time I will mix the cinnamon in with the pumpkin puree first then add it to the milk. Read More

I requested about 2 years ago for a hot drink besides coffee & cider for a Halloween party. R.R. wrote this to me. He had just started mixing the ingredients together so he didin't have a formal recipe he gave me approximate measurements at the time. It is a staple in our house from mid September on! Haven't ccme across anyone who didn't care for it. The kicker of the drink is to you fresh whipped cream and freshly grated nutmeg on top...Holy cow thats good! Read More

This is delicious with a few key changes. I added 1/2 cup dark brown sugar since 1/4 cup was not enough and I do not like things too sweet! I added a few sprinkles of cloves and some fresh ginger chopped. It does get chunky but by all means don't strain out the good things. PUT IT IN THE BLENDER!!!! It will be nice and frothy. Lovely drink. Read More

These are surprisingly good! Straining them might help with the chunkiness at the bottom. Read More

I made half the recipe and it was enough for the three of us! Tasty easy and fun. I would in the future have a bottle of whipped cream on hand and this is would be a fun party drink to have on hand. Read More

Delicious! It tastes like pumpkin pie in a mug:) I used whole milk and added some nutmeg and ground cloves to mine. Then topped it with a bit of whipped cream and cinnamon. As I was pouring it into the mugs I noticed it was rather thick so I ended up pouring it through a strainer. Read More

Yum! This was de-licious!!! The flavor was awesome. I did add a dash of cloves and a dash of nutmeg and threw it in the blender to help it foam up and then strained it before serving. YUM! And when I want caffeine I'll add a bit of coffee. EDIT: I did find that when scaling it down (I've scaled it both in half and down to one serving) it is not as good as the full recipe. From now on I will make the full recipe and save the leftovers in the fridge to reheat later! Read More

This is good but I made changes. I did half vanilla-flavoured coffee half milk and added whipped topping with a dusting of cinnamon. This would've been better if it were more spicy (with nutmeg maybe cloves...) and had slightly less sugar. I will skip the topping next time for sure. When making a single serving I would increase the pumpkin puree to 1/3 cup and add sugar as per your personal taste. Read More
