The chill of Fall is creeping into the air these days & warm, cozy foods are on our menu. Our treats are changing too - from Summer's cool treats to the belly-warming treats of Fall. It's one of my favorite times of year!
I found this treat on The Farm Chicks' blog. I made it this weekend and it's going to be a struggle not to make it every single day! SO yummy!!
A nice change from traditional hot chocolate & so perfect for Fall!!
The Farm Chicks' Spiced Pumpkin Sippers
4 cups whole milk
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Add all ingredients to a saucepan & whisk together thoroughly.
Whisk occasionally, over medium heat, until hot.
Ladle into mugs. Top with softly whipped cream & sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve hot.
Notes & Tips:
If you prefer a less-sweet drink, you can reduce the sugar by half.
These sippers are a great drink to serve to guests. To ease the work at party time, prepare the recipe in advance and refrigerate until ready to use.
Keep a crockpot full of the mixture to serve warm throughout your gathering.
Or, drink it one cupful at a time, simply reheating in the microwave.
