Gluten-free Autumn Latte

What was brewing in the GF-Chopstix kitchen? Since it is the height of all things pumpkin, I too am adding pumpkin to all sorts of dishes, and even drinking it!

That’s right. Today’s recipe is a beverage, with a hint of pumpkin.

How do you enjoy consuming pumpkins?

I have used freshly baked and pureed pumpkin for this recipe. I’m not sure how it would work with a canned version. I know that there are many, many recipes online for you to choose from. You could even create your own recipe. I just played around with ingredients, and liked this concoction best. Feel free to make your own adjustments to suit your palate.
