When I was born, my family lived in Circleville, Ohio, home of the world-famous Pumpkin Show. Although my family moved when I was just a few years old, my palette has always had a special place for pumpkin. Now that fall is here, I’m finally able to indulge in the foods of my favorite season, and you can, too, with this delicious recipe.
Enjoy the cold weather with a warm and frothy coffee drink infused with the flavors of fall. Don’t like coffee? Replace the instant coffee in this recipe with your favorite vegan hot-chocolate mix for a chocolaty pumpkin treat.
