Pumpkin spiced saturdays

pumpkin spice latte

Happy Saturday! We don’t have much planned for our weekend – kiddos have various groups all day today, Miss Lola is doing her training session so she can be a youth volunteer at our local musuem. Tomorrow we have a whole day with nothing we have to do… weather depending we may go for a walk. It’s been pretty awful all week – wet and windy, though we’ve missed the worst of it, many places have been hit hard with the storms and floods.

I’ve been trying hard to clean up my diet this week, I’d fallen into bad habits over the past few months – taking it in hand and cutting out the junk and adding in way more fruit and veg. Treating myself to a homemade pumpkin pie spice latte this morning, while I tackle the housework! It’s yummy {and cheaper than starbucks ;) }

To make the pumpkin pie spice you’ll need:

4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons ground nutmeg
4 tablespoons ground ginger
4 tablespoons ground allspice

I keep mine mixed in an old spice jar… to make the latte, I heat some soy milk in a pan, add a sprinkle or two of the spice mix and a squirt of honey to sweeten. Whisk the milk, once hot {but not boiling} pour it over a shot of coffee and enjoy!

Here’s a few weekend links for you:
