Put together the following ingredients:
- One teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Two tablespoon agave nectar
- A quarter cup of pumpkin butter
- One cup of milk
- One cup of pre-prepared cold brew coffee
From the night before, prepare your cold brew coffee. But remember to strain it before using it the next morning.
Also, you want to get some milk cubes frozen from the day before.
You can do this by combining your pumpkin pie spice with the pumpkin butter and agave nectar. Mix them thoroughly together with the milk. Then pour the contents into your tray. You can use a saran wrap to cover it.
In the morning, you can opt for a non-dairy milk over the other types. It will be a bit healthier and have a more creamy texture.
Get your blender and add as many pumpkin ice cubes as you wish. Put in your cold brew coffee as well.
Then blend until it reaches your desired consistency.
For those who prefer it to be a little sweet, add your sugar preference. This can be agave, stevia or regular sugar. When you taste it, if it is not fully to your liking, add more pumpkin butter or pumpkin pie spice to make it spicier.
After a few tries of making this pumpkin spice frappuccino, you will know exactly how to get it right the first time around.
Serve in a glass and add your whipped cream with cinnamon.
