Hey, pumpkin spice and chocolate lovers, let’s come together, and all drink this yummy thing we call pumpkin spiced hot chocolate. Today could not be a better day with this rain we have. Back in college when it would rain, my best friend and I would skip school all day and have what we called rainy day schedule. I know… rebel! It consisted of movies, hot chocolate, and lots of yummy food we were craving. Pretty much a dream day. Who is in for rainy day schedule? I wish! Be sure to include this pumpkin spiced hot chocolate, it’s a goody. It’s loaded with pumpkin, chocolate, and a hint of warming spices. Yummy! Bonus points, it’s dairy free. If you are a dairy lover, then just simply switch out the vegan dairy for the real deal. Let’s get cozy, grab a blanket, and sip on this pumpkin spiced hot chocolate. You deserve it!

Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate
¼ cup pumpkin puree
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
3-4 packets Truvia, or another sweetener to taste
¼ tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or coconut milk ( I prefer the coconut milk, but hey that is just me)
Now, this could NOT be any more simple. If you mess up…. well. We might need to have a conversation.
Place all ingredients in a blender and mix, transfer to a mug, and microwave 1-2 minutes until hot. If you are making for a crowd simply put in a saucepan and heat up on the stove.
Garnish with a dash of pumpkin spice on top, and add whipped cream of your choice.
