For the fall season we saw the popularity everything flavored pumpkin was getting.  So we decided to make our own pumpkin flavored drink and tell you how it turned out. We found this recipe online from Sallys Baking Addiction.

Overall the fall drink turned out very well! We added a few more ingredients to the recipe to make it sweeter. We added…

~2 extra tablespoons of pure maple syrup

~ 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream ( also making the drink thicker.)

I would recommend this recipe if you are looking for a drink full of fall flavors !
