Happy Sunday, friends and followers! It’s a B-E-A-Utiful sunny day here today. The temperature is cool and comfortable and I’m just sitting here enjoying a homemade pumpkin spice latte (more on THAT later 😉 ), listening to one of Elevation Worship’s albums. I hope today is your day of rest, too, and your time can be spent amongst your family and friends.
Last night as I was perusing through good ol’ Pinterest, I came across a recipe for a Pumpkin Spice recipe, and I wanted to share it with you. I made a few adjustments of my own, made a couple pumpkin spice lattes with it and believe me – tasty!
Why bother to pre-make a pumpkin spice mix? Well, for one thing it’s super simple, and if you love all things pumpkin (like me!) at this time of year then it’s handy to have ready-made! Secondly, it’s economical and good to know what’s going into your food. PLUS, this spice can go waaay beyond its namesake. Sure, you can make a delish pumpkin pie with it, but it can also be used in other baking recipes. It’s yummy in smoothies, on oatmeal, in lattes, mixed in whipped cream, in pancakes, on toast, and as a pumpkin seed or popcorn topping – among other things! I’ll post some recipes below to show more examples. So versatile. 😀
I have a few spice jars on hand that I bought at my local dollar store awhile back, but there are other really cute ones around that you can purchase (Williams and Sonoma)! One day when I’m feeling particularly OCD and ambitious, I plan to make chalkboard labels for all of mine. Right now, I just have a taco seasoning and the pumpkin pie spice, and so far haven’t gotten confused yet by my
lazinessunlabelled jars (although that would be a pretty awful tasting latte if I were to get them mixed up!) 😉
ANYWAYS! Onto the recipe:
Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 c. (4 Tbsp.) ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. ground ginger
4 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 tsp. ground all-spice
2 tsp. ground cloves
In a small bowl, whisk together ingredients until well-blended. Store in an air-tight jar.
Mmm! Pumpkin season is my favourite! ❤
**If you make this let me know what you try it on!**
