Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

I'm Erin Allmann. I love family, friends and food. A lot. I live in a teeny, tiny apartment in a place called Paradise with a wonderful boyfriend named Brett who cooks much better than I do. We both happen to be fantastic at eating and whenever we're not doing so, (which isn't all that often), we try to stay occupied outdoors. We're also two of the biggest nerds you can ever find, so excuse the occasional o-chem, bio, Harry Potter, or Star Wars reference.

Ugghhhhhhhh don’t you just love fall? I wouldn’t know. I’ve never experienced the season. I suppose that’s not entirely true. But I kind of live in Hawaii, which is kind of summer all the time. I’m not complaining. But I love the idea of fall. Mostly I love the idea of pumpkin. So let’s talk about it.

Everyone loves pumpkin, apparently. Although I really wish it were spelled ‘punkin’ like how your aunt mildred or someone probably used to call you growing up. And you totally hated it, but now you totally say it like that all the time. And when you become an aunt [or an uncle], you know you’re totally going to call your nieces and nephews ‘punkin.’ This has nothing to do with anything. Have a drink.

Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino [adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie, whose blog you should probably check out because this is only one of a bajillion awesome looking things she has on there..]

  • 4-6 coffee ice cubes [meaning make a strong cup of coffee, and then freeze it in your ice cube tray. Genius right? I didn't think of it. But I totally wish I did.]
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1-2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg and a teeeeennyyy pinch of ground ginger

Dump it all in your Tall Cup and blend the heck out of it with your cross blade. It’s the best thing ever. And there’s no ice to water it down because your ice is coffee. GENIUS, I tell you!
