Pumpkin Bourbon Spice Drink

Hello everyone!

I have a new drink recipe to share with you today!

It’s definitely what I would consider a ‘winter’ drink, maybe even a holiday drink if you will… which I am aware that the holidays are over, but we can pretend, yes?

You Need:
you need copy

-1 oz Bourbon (I used my go to: Knob Creek)
-1 oz Pumpkin Syrup
(Bring 1/2 Cup water, 1/2 Cup sugar, 3 TB of pure pumpkin, 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg to a boil. Allow to cool before using)
-1/2 oz cream (1/2 and 1/2 works as well)
– A shaker

Add all the ingredients to the shaker with some ice. Shake for about a minute (we want a foamy top!), then pour into a cocktail glass. I sprinkled mine with a bit of cinnamon for garnish.

Pumpkin Spice Chia Seed Pudding

Hello hello!

I have a new recipe to share today!

It’s officially fall, and like it or not, that also means it is officially pumpkin spice everything season! I must admit I am definitely one of those ‘pumpkin people’. I can’t resist it. It calls to me. I’ve recently been making chia seed pudding in various flavors semi regularly, so I felt it would be appropriate to come up with a pumpkin spice version!

You Need:
you need pumpkin
-1/4 cup Chia Seeds
-1 cup almond milk (I used vanilla flavor, but I’m sure regular or even normal milk would do fine.)
-1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
-2 tablespoons pumpkin
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
-1/4 teaspoon ginger
-1/4 teaspoon cloves

One:
pumpkin spice pudding
Whisk together the almond milk and pumpkin until it’s smooth and all the lumps are gone. Add the brown sugar and spices and whisk until they are incorporated.

Two:
pumpkin spice chia seed
Add the chia seeds and mix them in. You want to make sure they are all submerged into the liquid.

Three:
pumpkin chia pudding
Place the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 2 or 3 hours while the chia seeds gelatinize. Mix the pudding a few times during this period. After the seeds have gelatinized, it’s good to stay in the fridge however long you want!

Four:
pumpkin chia pudding 2
Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and serve. I feel a bit of whipped cream would also be lovely, but I’m trying to be healthy…

Happy fall!
