I miss pumpkin drinks, the sugary syrup overwhelming the bold coffee in a cold or hot drink. Yum. Life in Costa Rica does not come with Starbucks however and very few pumpkins are around. But I found some pumpkin purée last week and made one pumpkin pie with it, the leftover purée I just turned into a coffee version of the delicious PSL.
Tip, this is not as sweet as a normal PSL because I’m on a low carb diet, you could just add more simple syrup.
Makes one serving 12ish oz serving
- 2 tbsp pumpkin purée (not pie filling)
- 4 oz whole milk (or nondairy milk)
- 6 oz cold brew
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp powdered ginger
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- One or two tbsp simple syrup (sugar water aka simple syrup, works better in cold drinks than regular sugar)
Now I threw all that in a blender and it mixed up quickly in 20 seconds of light blending. I even found it makes a little froth which I loved!
I did not use a recipe to make this I just sorted it out based on pumpkin pie experience.. It was acceptable and festive and I will make improvements in the future.
