Let me just start off by saying that when I was playing with this recipe in the kitchen and whipped it up and served it to Ms. Shannon Marta... she took a sip...and burned her tongue. =( Then after that dramatic episode... she took another sip... and her big brown eyes brightened up like a BNY LED WALL! ;-) She said, "OH MY GOSH! We have to post this on the BLOGGGG!".
So, here I am! Let me tell you also, that we are NOT coffee drinkers! This recipe HAS NO COFFEE!? "Whatever do you mean?" many coffee advocates may exclaim with drastic expressions of fear of losing one's purpose in this hipster beverage of a world. =) No, it simply doesn't have any coffee BUT I DO have a reputable source. His name is Riley and he is the talented producer behind Bread of Stone's latest albums! He was at our house last week working on our new record and HE IS A SERIOUS NASHVILLE PRODUCER COFFEE DRINKER! Seriously! I made him this, he took a sip while aiming his eyes directly on the colorful screen of PRO TOOLS and then looked back at me and said, "YOU CAN'T EVEN TELL THERE ISN'T ANY COFFEE IN IT!". =) =) =) (THIS MADE ME SMILE!)
Enjoy this recipe, friends! All things PUMPKIN and CINNAMON are whirling in our kitchen lately while the fall breeze rustles in and there is nothing better that finding a beautiful accompaniment to a traditional style beverage!
-No hipsters, coffee drinkers, or Nashville musician producers were hurt during the writing of this blog. ;-)
-1 cup almond milk
-1 1/2 TSP PUMPKIN SPICE
-2 TBS HONEY
-Combine all ingredients in your blender! NOW HERE IS THE TRICK! You preferably need to blend this on LOW for about one minute! (This is going to create a wonderful frothy consistency!) After one minute has passed, increase the speed for a few seconds! Then you are ready to pour into a small pot!
-Warm up on medium heat! This will spruce the froth up even more! Then once its warmed up to your liking...pour into the cutest mug you can find and enjoy!
-OH! AND DON'T FORGET TO GARNISH YOUR LATTE WITH PUMPKIN SPICE SPRINKLED ON THE TOP! ;-)
