Warm Spiced Pumpkin Nog

Warm Spiced Pumpkin Nog

This has been my morning drink for the past few days, nice and warm and seasonally appropriate. I had pumpkin puree needing to be used up and had already made the usuals; pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins, so wanted to try something a little bit different.

The recipe makes approximately 4 cups of nog, enough for two large mugs. I will also warn you that I like my food lightly spiced and not too sweet, so I have included a range of measurements.

Warm Spiced Pumpkin Nog

8 heaping Tablespoons of pumpkin puree

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon each of allspice, ginger, nutmeg and cardamom

pinch to 1/8 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon each of vanilla extract and agave nectar (or to taste)

3 cups soymilk

Heat milk. Thoroughly mix spices, extract and sweetener with pumpkin puree. Add hot milk and stir.
