Day 2 of Pumpkin Week!

I don’t often indulge in fancy warm drinks. I’m not a coffee drinker. I love hot chocolate, but it’s pretty rare that I actually drink it. But when fall comes around and the temps start to drop, you can’t help but want to cuddle up on the couch, hot drink in hand.

There is a local bakery/cafe here that serves up a variety of steamers – which are basically just warm milk drinks. I have heard that you can get steamers at Starbucks as well. I am pretty sure that these drinks are just flavored with syrups. I’m totally ok with that. Unless I am making it at home, and I don’t want to buy a whole bottle of pumpkin spice syrup. And I don’t want to make you have to buy a whole bottle. Because really, making this delicious drink from scratch is pretty darn easy.

I used a blender to combine all of the ingredients, and the blender also makes it a little bit frothy, which I think makes it a little more special. I’m pretty sure you could just whisk together all of the ingredients, but the blender was definitely an easy way to go. And I admit that I totally used whipped cream from a can, because it was easy. But some good, homemade whipped cream would really be amazing.

I know I’ll be keeping this around all winter, especially when it starts to snow. I can’t think of a better way to keep warm!

    I’m not a coffee drinker either, and sometimes I feel jealous of the fun seasonal drinks people get at Starbucks. This totally solves that problem, I can’t wait to try it!!

  3. Finally a pumpkin drink with REAL pumpkin in it! Gosh, I can not believe how many recipes do not have pumpkin in the recipe. Keep us flooded with pumpkin recipes!

  4. Oh yes this sounds and looks amazing. I’m not a big coffee drinker or hot chocolate drinker either although I DO like them. I’ve gotta make sure to try this on a cold and snowy night once Winter comes.

  5. What a great drink, Deb! With all the latte recipes floating around, it is nice to see a non coffee one! Gorgeous!!

    Oh so delightful 🙂 I bet this tastes wonderful!

  16. Jaime says:

    Can you use everaperd milk instead of condense milk?

    • Deborah says:

      Jaime – you wouldn’t want to substitute evaporated milk for the sweetened condensed milk. If you don’t have sweetened condensed milk, I would just omit it. It’s not necessary for the recipe, it just adds some richness.

    Can almond milk be used instead of regular milk?
