Cooler autumn weather calls for warm cupfuls of deliciousness. These sippers incorporate what's best about the season - pumpkin and pie-like spices. And yes, they're beyond delicious!
Spiced Pumpkin Sippers
4 cups whole milk
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Add all ingredients to a saucepan and whisk together over medium heat. Whisk occasionally until hot. Ladle into mugs. Optional: Drizzle with whipped cream that has been softly whipped and sprinkle with ground nutmeg.
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.
