MoFo Monday: Hot Pumpkin Mug


A confession: The recipe I made for this week’s MoFo Monday isn’t actually from a blogger who’s participating in VeganMoFo this year. I knowww. However, Kathy Patalsky from Healthy. Happy. Life. is a rockstar vegan blogger and cookbook author who just so happened to post a recipe that I desperately wanted to try. I’d actually planned to make Angela’s crazy-amazing Apple Pie Chia Seed Breakfast Parfait, buttt I didn’t realize that Costco closes at 6:00 on Sundays, and that’s where I was planning to stock up on chia seeds (rather than pay out the nose at Whole Foods). Oops. Next week?

Anyway, I quickly changed plans last night and decided to make Kathy’s Hot Pumpkin Mug this morning instead. Basically, Kathy stripped out the caffeine that you typically find in a hot pumpkin beverage and let the pumpkin shine. It’s a creamy, spicy, frothy drink that’ll warm your belly and fill you up.

My pumpkin drink wasn’t nearly as orange as Kathy’s, even though I cheated and added some turmeric for color. And I didn’t have time this morning to make coconut whipped cream. But it was still absolutely lovely! S is sitting at his computer right now, drinking it and making satisfied Mmm sounds. :)
