Homemade Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino
I don’t know about you, but I have a weakness for all the pumpkin recipes once the first signs of fall become clear to me.
Last week was chilly and all I could think of was one of these yummy treats.
This recipe makes about 2 medium size drinks.
1 cup low fat milk
1/2 cup Vanilla Ice Cream (Strong coffee for Coffee based drink)
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 to 1/2 cup simple syrup – or to taste* (recipe below)
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or All Spice
1 to 2 cups crushed ice
Redi Whip (Homemade Whipped Cream)
Pumpkin pie spice for garnish
Simple Syrup Recipe
In a medium saucepan combine 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water. Heat on medium until sugar is dissolved.
Pour the first 5 ingredients into a blender.
Mix on medium until thoroughly combined.
Add ice and blend until the frappuccino is smooth and without chunks of ice.
Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
