Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk

Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk | Well and Full | #pumpkin #spice #vegan

Right now I’m sitting in Whole Foods, with one of my best friends in the world, having just demolished a huge bowl of goodies from the salad bar, drinking passionfruit iced tea. It’s a pretty perfect situation, I’d say.

I know the past few posts have been uncharacteristically outspoken for me. But when I see a problem in the world, I’m not content to sit by and let it happen without comment. But still, there’s a time and place for everything, and I feel like I’ve said my share for now. Even though it seems like so many frightening and terrible things are happening in the world, there is still so much good to be seen and experienced. And I would like to use this platform as a way to express my gratitude.

Today I’m especially grateful for my best friend, my boyfriend, my blog, you (my readers), and for the scented glitter gel pens I just got at Barnes and Nobles. And I know scented glitter gel pens might seem like a trivial thing to be grateful for, but sometimes the small things can just bring a smile to your face.

I guess my point is that even though bad things are happening in the world – which SHOULD be discussed and talked about and debated – there is also room for gratitude. I am so grateful for my life and for the endless opportunities I’ve been given. And I am so grateful to you all, my readers, who have been on this journey with me. Sending love and blessings to you all. <3


A few words about this recipe – I know pumpkin spice season is coming to an end, but I still had to share this PSAM (pumpkin spice almond milk) before autumn came to an end. (And I still have one more pumpkin spice recipe to share… PSG. Can you guess what it is!?)

I hope you all love this almond milk – it’s ridiculously easy to make, and tastes so festive and pumpkin-y. Just a note – I’m not a huge fan of super-sweet milks, so this is a little on theΒ au naturale side. But feel free to amp up the sweetness if you like!

Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk
 
Prep time
Total time
 
This pumpkin spice almond milk is the perfect addition to cereal or coffee, but is a delicious and festive sip on its own! The perfect drink for fall.
Ingredients
  • 1 Cup Raw Whole Almonds, soaked in water overnight
  • 4 Cups Water
  • ¼ Cup Pumpkin PurΓ©e
  • ¼ Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Tsp Cinnamon
  • ¼ Tsp Nutmeg
  • ⅛ Tsp Allspice
  • ⅛ Tsp Cloves
  • 2-4 Tbs Maple Syrup, to taste
Instructions
  1. Prep your almonds by soaking them in a bowl of water overnight.
  2. The next day, add the soaked almonds, water, pumpkin purΓ©e, spices, and maple syrup to a high-speed blender.
  3. Blend on high for 30 seconds - 1 minute, until almonds are pulverized.
  4. Line a large bowl with a nut milk bag. If you don't have one, you can also you a cheesecloth or even a fine mesh sieve. Just note that using a sieve may not result in a super-smooth milk.
  5. Depending on how big your nut milk bag is, pour some or all of the milk into the bag or cheesecloth. Squeeze the liquid out into the bowl, working in batches if necessary.
  6. Once you've squeezed out as much liquid as you can, transfer the milk into an airtight container. I like to use mason jars. The milk can be used immediately, or can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a week.

    Here here, Sarah! You have this platform, why not use it. And besides, not mentioning in important social and political world events just feels weird and isolated. Lovely drink, my friend. This is just what I want to be sipping on wright now.
