Grandma's Pumpkin Juice

This drink is just a nice one to have for the kids – it always makes Thanksgiving Day more festive and fun.

What my Gram used to do was something similar — she would take what was left after making the mix for pumpkin pie, and mix it with cold milk.  But because that has eggs, I just do as follows:

Grams Pumpkin Juice

3 cups milk
1 cup half and half or cream
1 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
3 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or more/less to taste)
Whipped Cream
Add the milk and pumpkin to a blender and blend well.  Add all remaining ingredients.

Garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

This can me made a day or two ahead of time – Just keep refrigerated.

Serves 4
