Pumpkin Recipes For Your Fall Enjoyment
Now that it is November, we have entered the heart of fall, which means the season for all things pumpkin flavored is in full force! Since you’re probably saving the pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, we here at The Estates 3Eighty Blog are serving you some of our other favorite ways to use pumpkin in both the savory and the sweet. Try out one of these recipes in your Little Elm, TX apartment!
Starbucks introduced us to the Pumpkin Spice Latte we know and love, but at $4.50+ per latte, it might be time to try a homemade version. Not only does this latte give you the same great taste that one from the coffee shop will, but it is also better for you! Using pure maple syrup and non-sweetened spice mix instead of the sugary ingredients most cafes use, this latte is sure to take the cake in both the way it tastes and the way it makes you feel.
Not a coffee drinker? Try waking up to a bowl of pumpkin pie oatmeal! It has the great combination of flavors you’d find in a slice of your favorite pie minus all the calories! Using old-fashioned rolled oats, almond milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, pecans, and maple syrup, create this delicious breakfast to start your day off a healthy and a festive way!
Are you looking for a pumpkin dish that isn’t a dessert? This hearty chili makes a perfect fall dinner to share with friends or family. If you serve it on a day when there’s a cool breeze, it’s bound to warm you right up! Make sure to have ground beef/turkey, onions, tomatoes, pumpkin puree, red kidney beans, black beans, pumpkin pie spice, chili powder, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, sour cream, and grated cheese. If you’re looking for a fun way to serve this, try cleaning out small pumpkins and using them as soup bowls!
The only thing that could make a cinnamon roll even better is pumpkin! A soft, fluffy roll with a gooey pumpkin and brown sugar center topped with a cream cheese frosting? This is the perfect dessert for any fall occasion. Make it with flour, yeast, pumpkin puree, milk, sugar, butter, pumpkin pie spice, salt, eggs, brown sugar, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
If you’d like a pumpkin-flavored drink at dinnertime, try out The Cookie Rookie’s Pumpkin Punch. The best part about this cocktail is it has only six ingredients! Use apple cider, cream soda, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, vodka, and whipped cream. If you’re not looking for an alcoholic drink, or if you are making this for children, make it a mocktail by simply leaving out the alcohol.
We hope you enjoy these recipes. Thanks for reading, and Happy November!
