This month's ReDux theme is one that I embrace all year round - a celebration of the colors of fall in food: think butternut squash, pumpkin, carrots, sweet potatoes & even golden beets.
I know I embrace it because as I started thinking about what recipe I wanted to create, I realized I have an "orange" food recipe in nearly every category of my blog.
So what was left to create? Here's what I came up with:
Pumpkin Spice Latte is to fall as Eggnog is to Christmas. But wanting to put a new spin on it, I combined my husband's favorite coffee shop choice - the caramel macchiato - with the cromforting spice of pumpkin. No... this isn't exactly a recipe that showcases all the health benefits of orange colored foods ... but it sure does get you in the mood to. Plus, as you can see above - I've got a recipe index full orange-inspired dishes to dine on. Give them all a try!
Ingredients (1 drink)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons vanilla syrup for coffee
- 1 tablespoon canned pumpkin
- Pinch of pumpkin pie spice
- 3/4 cup freshly brewed strong coffee or espresso
- 1/3 cup milk, steamed and foamed
Add syrup, pumpkin, spice and coffee to a large coffee mug; pour steamed milk over mixture. Spoon foam on top and drizzle with caramel.
