Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • I cup strong, brewed coffee, cooled
  • 1/3 cup organic pumpkin puree
  • 6-8 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • cinnamon, to taste
  • nutmeg, to taste
  • Optional: whipped coconut cream, for garnish
Instructions
  1. For the unsweetened coconut milk, scoop the solids off of the top of the can before measuring out a cup of the remaining liquid. Use the solids to whip with a little extra coconut sugar for the topping, if desired.
  2. In a blender, combine the cup of coconut milk with the coffee, pumpkin puree, coconut sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings, as needed.
  3. Fill two tall glasses about 2/3 of the way with ice cubes. Pour half of the mixture into each glass. Garnish with whipped coconut cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired. Serve immediately.
  4. Note: if you want to serve this hot, just place the blended liquid into microwave-safe mugs and microwave until hot.
