Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp pumpkin purée
  • 3-4 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (480ml) milk, I used skim
  • Whipped cream, marshmallow, chocolate sprinkles, cinnamon, to serve (optional.. but not really! ;))

Instructions

  1. Place pumpkin purée, sugar, cocoa powder, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract into a medium sized saucepan.

  2. Gradually add the milk, whisking as you go, then turn the heat on low and stir frequently until the mixture is smooth with no lumps of cocoa powder.

  3. Bring to a gentle simmer, continuing to stir so nothing sticks. Remove from the heat and ladle into mugs. This will serve 2-3 people depending on the size of mug.

  4. There are lots of ways you can garnish; with marshmallows, with cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon, with cream and chocolate sprinkles... go wild with toppings!
