Hot Pumpkin Spice Drink

Today I was making some Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip cookies and had some pumpkin left over.  I was wanting a hot, lightly spicy drink and decided to experiment.  I ended up with a tasty hot drink that could even be served cold.  I’m trying to keep down my sugar intake and decided to make it with sweetener instead of sugar.

1 1/2 cups milk
1 egg
1/4 cup sweetener
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 Tbs. pumpkin
dash of salt
McCormick Chai Spice Blend (or Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend)

Scald the milk.  Whisk the egg until slightly frothy.  While whipping the egg, slowly pour in the scalding hot milk.  Make sure you add it slowly so the egg doesn’t get cooked, you don’t want little egg floaties in your drink.   Add the Sweetener, vanilla, pumpkin, and salt to the egg and mix well.   Pour back into the pan and heat to desired temperature, mix in the Chai spice to taste, less than 1/8 teaspoon, it doesn’t take much.  Pour into cups and enjoy.  If desired cold, cool and refrigerate. (Use 1/4 cup sugar instead of sweetener, if desired)

Serves 2
