It’s a New Day!

So, things changed in the Murray world quite a bit since the COVID-19 pandemic. You know, things like online learning (a.ka. home schooling) for the older two kiddies, running after and entertaining a 2 year old, preparing for a 4th bundle. This said, I am taking a break from ‘done for you’ and custom desserts until the fall. Joining the mailing list so you can be in the know about what’s coming soon. HINT; bougie decadence delivered to your front door. Yasss!

PUMPKIN SPICE TEA LATTE

True story: As much as I love coffee, I haven’t been able to drink a cup of it for 8 years now without getting the shakes. I end up feeling wonky and out of sorts the whole day. Sucks, I know. Since I haven’t had a cup of latte in forever, I decided to make one with tea. I am sensitive to milk so I used almond milk and maple syrup as a sweetener.  I had orange pekoe tea bags handy so that is what I used.

What is fantastic about this recipe is that it is delicious as it is versatile.  You can use the milk and sweetener of your choice and you can adjust the sweetness to your liking.  Pumpkin Spice Tea Latte is served.  On sip of this yummy latte and you will instantly be catapulted to your couch.  Perfect cool weather ‘me time’ hot beverage.  I do mean PERFECT.

 

If you are a warm spice lover like me, you use any opportunity to add a little bit in whatever you bake.  There is nothing like the smell of warm spices during this time of year.  A drink like this goes down the best when you are curled up on the couch, holding your favourite cup with your pinky up…it just tastes better that way.  I enjoyed mine on my bar stool.  One of the kiddies would have found some way of bumping me which would result in a big mess.  To save my brain cells, I opted for the bar stool.  The joys of parenting 4 kiddies.

So, more about this yummy tea latte.  I made my own pumpkin spice.  You will only need 1/2 tsp for this recipe so store the excess in a sealed container for more latte making or baking.
