Fall is officially here and with this season we know to expect certain things; like leaves changing color, a cold nip in the air, and; of course, pumpkin spice flavored…everything.
Pumpkin spice actually has little to do with pumpkins itself; the spice, which is a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice, was traditionally used for making pumpkin pies. These days you can find pumpkin spice in everything from coffee to cakes, especially come Autumn.
Here are some yummy, non-pumpkin pie recipes featuring pumpkin spice:
You’ve definitely heard of Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSLs), but have you ever thought about making a pumpkin spice smoothie? This surprisingly easy and delicious recipe basically consists of four ingredients; plain pumpkin puree, nutmeg, milk, and a drizzle of honey. A refreshing alternative way to drink in pumpkins this season without involving caffeine.
Who doesn’t love a good cinnamon roll? Why not make it a little more Autumn-appropriate and kick things up with a little pumpkin spice? This scrumptious recipe is the perfect thing to make for a cool evening, especially for kids coming back from school hungry and looking for a little pick-me-up treat.
Another insanely easy and yummy way to incorporate pumpkin spice into your life is with a pumpkin spice spread. This spread consists of unsalted butter, pure pumpkin puree, maple syrup, pumpkin spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice), and kosher salt. Simply mix all the ingredients together until it’s fluffy and spread it across a slice of bread of your choice.
