You might say I have a coffee problem. I just say it's a healthy love affair with the bean. My mornings almost always consist of six cups of coffee (give or take a few). However, there's something about the 12:00 hour that sends a mental trigger - I just cannot have hot coffee after noon. Thank GOODNESS I found this! Now I can get my coffee AND pumpkin fix, all at the same time!
The second I saw this I did a mental inventory of the ingredients, figured I had them all, and then promptly got up and made it.
A few changes were made from the original recipe and I'm pretty much in love with how it turned out.
3/4 cup milk
1 cup ice
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar (you may want to use more if you like your frapps super sweet)
1 Tbsp Maple syrup
3 Tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin spice
Dissolve sugar into coffee and refrigerate until cold.
Blend pumpkin and pumpkin spice until well mixed.
Crush the cup of ice cubes in a blender. Add cold coffee, milk, pumpkin mix, and Maple syrup.
Blend until smooth.
Do a little taste test and add anything you see fit (more pumpkin, more sugar, etc).
Top with a dash of cinnamon. And, if you want to get real fancy, add some whipped cream.
Now, go get your self some pumpkin frap!
