PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE (WITH PUMPKIN)


On a whim while grocery shopping, I decided to buy a can of pure pumpkin. Now jumping right on the pumpkin spice bandwagon, I decided to make some into pumpkin spice latte. Proceed to buzzfeed here to see the craze.

While I wish coffee chains in Malaysia served pumpkin spice latte, I heard in the actual drink, there's no actual pumpkin involved. Bummer. 



So in the name of keeping up with fall flavors, I made some for myself with actual pumpkin. yay! Now for this recipe, you could either use coffee or tea. I used black tea.

Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe 
Yields: 1 large latte

Cinnamon spice
  • 1 TBSP cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
Latte
  • 1/2 cup strong black tea /coffee
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 2 TBSP brown sugar (add to preference)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • nutmeg to sprinkle 
  1. Combine black tea, milk , pumpkin puree , suger and pumpkin spice in blender and whizz until frothy.
  2. Spoon cold whipped cream on to latte and sprinkle with nutmeg.
NOTE: If  you do not own a blender, you could always whip the milk until frothy then add the tea.

P.S: Any "into the wild" fans around?

MID WEEK MOTIVATIONS #2



Alright for this week's MWM, be prepared for animal videos. Very random animals.


  • If you have not seen this two kangaroos I suggest you do it now. The stars of the show are the two kangaroos fighting it out, but damn that background music fits perfectly. Watch here.
  • Some genius decided to strap a GoPro on his dog and watch how he bounds towards the sea. Gotta love how Walter the Labrador runs at full speed even with all those rocks. Check it out!
  • On a side note. Give Goodmail a shot. 
"GoodMail is project hosted by Do Something Good. When you agree to send an anonymous message of inspiration and hope, you'll also receive one from another participant in this project. On November 1, we'll send the emails out. We can't wait for all the good feels to come around!" Link here.

Have a great week!
