Ingredients: 1 C pumpkin puree (we use Elana’s Pantry instructions)
1 C pure apple juice (use apple cider if you can’t find unpasteurized apple juice)
1 C light canned or the boxed drinking kind of coconut milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Spiced Rum or Espresso
Instructions: ? In a medium saucepan, whisk together the pumpkin, juice and milk over medium heat
? Simmer until it just begins to boil while constantly stirring, about 10 minutes
? Whisk in cinnamon and nutmeg until combined and remove from heat
If you have cinnamon sticks, add the stick early on instead of the ground cinnamon and let simmer for 20 minutes – we’re just not that patient!
? If you have a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, strain
Notes: Serves 4 – serve hot or cold. For adults, add coffee or liquor in a 1:3 ratio to the Pumpkin Cider for a special treat!
Let your kids help with the steps marked with a heart (?).
