Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are taking it easy today and not doing any of the Black Friday shopping. As I sit and relax I’m sipping on this yummy pumpkin hot chocolate. I originally tested this recipe out on the moms in our play group and it seemed to be a huge hit. A few said it’s better then Starbuck’s being that it’s lighter and more flavorful. I haven’t had it there so I can’t tell you for sure, but this is pretty tasty. If you want you can even mix in a little coffee too if you need some extra caffeine to get you going.

(Created by Finding Inspiration in Food)

4 cups milk

3/4 cup homemade pumpkin puree(use less of store bought puree as it’s thicker)

1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

6 tablespoons maple syrup

1/4 cup sugar

Pinch of salt

2 teaspoons vanilla


On the stove in a medium pot, whisk together the milk, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, cocoa, maple syrup, sugar and pinch of salt.




Heat over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Whisk and cook for 2 minutes.

Remove from the heat, stir in the vanilla and cool until ready to serve, or serve immediately with a splash of extra milk, a dollop of whipped cream, marshmallows or your favorite other hot chocolate toppings.
