1 C pumpkin puree

1 C apple cider or juice

1 C light coconut milk or drinking coconut milk

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg



In a medium saucepan, whisk together the pumpkin, juice and milk over medium heat

Simmer until it just begins to boil while constantly stirring, about 10 minutes

Whisk in cinnamon and nutmeg until combined and remove from heat

If you have cinnamon sticks, add the stick early on instead of the ground cinnamon and let simmer for 20 minutes – we’re just not that patient!

If you have a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, strain

Serves 4 – serve hot or cold. Finian prefers iced with a straw and Cole loves blowing on the hot cider and letting it warm his hands after playing outside in cool weather.

For adults, add coffee in equal portions to the Pumpkin Cider for a pumpkin spice latte taste! Let your kids help with the steps marked with a heart .
