Pumpkin Sips – Great Pumpkin Search 2015

November is almost over.

Fall fun will be wrapped up for winter wonder.


I enjoyed celebrating Thanksgiving with family and loved ones. The turkey and all the fixings were amazing, but I’m still in fall celebration mood with pumpkin sips for all those leftovers.

I have a great Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Tea Latte Recipe for you.


But first:

If you didn’t get enough pumpkin pie at the dinner table, or you can’t wait four weeks until Christmas, this is the Soda for you.

Lester’s Fixings Pumpkin Pie Soda


Lester’s Fixings, Pumpkin Pie Soda is carbonated pumpkin pie. I found this crazy beverage at Stella’s Modern Pantry in Ocala, Florida. A little too sweet for me, this soda tastes exactly like a sweet, carbonated version of its namesake.

You can purchase this beverage along with some other crazy flavors over at: Vat19.com


Next we have Silk’s new addition to their Nog Line of dairy free holiday drinks.

Silk Pumpkin Spice Almond Nog Tea Latte


This isn’t as creamy as egg nog, but the taste is rich. The spices are well balanced with the almond milk. I find it’s a good alternative for recipe, like this delicious dairy free pumpkin spice tea latte.


Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Tea Latte Recipe:

• 1 cup boiling water

• 1 teabag black tea (a bold tea is best)

• 1 cup Silk Pumpkin Spice Almond Nog

• Sugar to taste

• Cinnamon (optional)

Tools: Kettle/microwave/pot and stove, Frother wand


~ Steep your black teabag in the freshly boiled water for about 5-6 minutes (I do six for a bold flavor).

~ Sweeten with sugar or alternative to taste.

~ Heat the Almond Nog in the microwave or stove top until bubble form. (about 1-2 minutes in microwave, longer on stove). Try not to boil the nog.

~ Froth the Nog with your wand (or shake in a well sealed container until lots of bubbles form)

~ Add Frothed Nog to tea. Sprinkle with Cinnamon (optional).
