Pumpkin Pie Sip (FP)

Fall always promises so much to look forward to… except, the miserable extra pounds many are usually stuck with by the end of season. What is a poor mama do? Listen up, Mamas!!! Please don’t despair. You can “TRIM” the holidays healthy this year. You CAN get your slim on while satisfying your holiday taste buds – never denying them one mouthful of “festive flavor” indulgence. Plug yourself into the taste of Autumn with our Pumpkin Pie Sip!

Servings: Single-serve All-day Sipper

INGREDIENTS:

– 4 bags rooibos tea
– 2 Tbsp pumpkin puree
– 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
– 3 splashes vanilla extract
– 3 pinches mineral salt
– 2 to 4 doonks THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder (to taste) (or 2 to 3 tsp THM Sweet Blend)
– 1 tsp THM MCT oil (or ½ tsp coconut oil) (*see note below)
– 2 tsp THM Pristine Protein Powder (*or 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk)
– ice cubes and cold water (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Steep the rooibos tea bags in a mug of boiled water for several minutes. Discard the tea bags and pour the tea into a blender with all the remaining ingredients except the ice (if using). Blend until smooth and frothy. This your Pumpkin Pie Sip concentrate.
2. Now take a second to muse upon whether you want your drink chilled and refreshing or hot and soothing.

For a Chilled Pumpkin Pie Sip:
1. Pour the concentrate into a 2-quart jar. Fill to the brim with ice cubes, then pour in the concentrate and top off with cold water.
2. Stir, taste, and adjust the flavors until it rocks your holiday world.

For a Hot and Soothing Pumpkin Pie Sip:
1. For a hot sip, pour the concentrate into a 2-quart jar and add enough boiling water to reach the top. Taste and adjust as necessary.
2. You can put this yummy mixture in a large stay warm carafe (cheap from Walmart) and use an insulated cup for when you are on the go.

RECIPE NOTES:

– Sip your pumpkin pie all day, but please don’t forget to enjoy it at night by the fireside, too. Great antidote to the evening snackies. Enjoy!! – From Serene

– You can replace oil and whey protein powder with ½ cup unsweetened almond milk, if you don’t have those ingredients.
