It’s that time of year again….F-A-L-L. But I think there are still quite a few of us in denial – myself included. I feel like there weren’t enough hours in the hammock, enough after-work swims at the lake, hikes by the ocean, fresh cobs of corn eaten.
There never are though, are there?
But we’re still in that time of year where we might just get a few warm days – days where one last dip in the lake might just be possible before the leaves start to turn.
Nevertheless, everyone’s favourite(?) coffee chain has their pumpkin spice lattes on the menu. I confess, I’ve had one already. And it totally made me want to put on a scarf.
But for those of us not ready to give up the lazy hazy days…I have created these. Pumpkin Spice Latte Popsicles. They are the very definition of shoulder season food.
- 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 shots espresso
- 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- Pinch of ginger
- Maple Syrup to sweeten, to taste
- Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Stir until fully mixed, and then pour into popsicle molds. Add a stick and freeze. Enjoy!
