Fall is in the air (and my mouth...)

I've been trying my best to stay away from coffee shops during my pregnancy and this time of year it's especially difficult. I drink decaf coffee every morning and the placebo effect seems to be working, but recently the smell of cinnamon and pumpkin coffee nearly send me into caffeine withdrawal / shock. So much so that I had to create my own version of a Fall Coffee Drink.

Here's what I used (any variation will work, I'm sure)

Strong Coffee (1/2 coffee ground to 6 cups water)
Pumpkin Puree

Pumpkin Spice Creamer


First, I started my coffee. Then I put about 2 tbsp of creamer in my mug, along with a 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Put that in the microwave for about 30 secs to warm it up. Then, mix in about 1 tbsp pumpkin puree and wait for your coffee to finish...

and here's what I ended up with (I'm drinking it as I type and it's delcious).
