pumpkin spice hot chocolate

Wednesday, September 17, 2014
There's nothing better than a mug of hot chocolate on a fall evening. Add some pumpkin to the mix and you've got something really special (trust me).

I found this recipe on Pinterest and love that it is not loaded with sugar or other unhealthy ingredients. The original recipe makes two servings, but since the hubs is not a fan of pumpkin (I'm still hoping he'll come around...) I cut it in half to make a perfect single serving. The pumpkin in this recipe is NOT overpowering at all, but just adds a little more depth and richness.

1. Blend all ingredients except stevia in a blender until thoroughly mixed.
2. Check sweetness and add stevia to taste. Blend once more.
3. Pour mixture into a saucepan and stir regularly until steaming. 
4. Serve in a big mug and enjoy!
