If you still haven’t decided what to drink on Thanksgiving morning, might I suggest this Spiced Pumpkin Latte.  You can make it quickly on the stove top, or add all the ingredients to a slow cooker and cook on low for 2 hours!  My favorite recipe for Spiced Pumpkin Latte [3].

Spiced Pumpkin Latte

Yield – 2 large servings
Preparation Time – 5 minutes
Cooking Time – 8 minutes


  • 2 cups whole milk
  • ¼ cup canned pure pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup sugar or other sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup strong coffee, or 2 espresso shots


  • In a saucepan, whisk together the milk, pumpkin and sugar. Heat until it starts to bubble.
  • Stir in the vanilla and pumpkin pie spice and continue warming for another minute.
  • Just as it starts to bubble, stir in the coffee or espresso. Remove from heat.
  • Serve with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.

And if you’re looking for a kid-friendly side dish for your Thanksgiving table…try these Gingered Carrot Coins [4].  Just the right amount of sweetness and zip from the ginger…even the pickiest eater is sure to love these!
