Pumpkin Spice Everywhere

Fall is in full swing, but that's not necessarily due to cool weather changes or the leaves falling from trees. If there's definitely one thing that marks fall that's the overabundance of PUMPKIN SPICE items! Everything's suddenly made with pumpkin and mostly all are quite delicious. Today, I've decided to list some of my favorites with ways to include these flavors into fun fall plans & activities. 

1. Pumpkin Creamer -  There's noting like having a homemade PSL. If you can't make your way to a coffee shop that's likely offering their version of a pumpkin latte this creamer makes for a great alternative. It's perfect combined with a cup of java on cold fall nights. Enjoy a mug at home enjoying classic fall movies!

2. Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt: Menchie's has the absolute best pumpkin harvest frozen yogurt. Naturally, it's only around come fall, but it's well worth the wait. I'm sure many frozen yogurt establishments carry their own version, but my favorite is found at Menchie's. Try a kid-filled outing after fall soccer and bring along the whole team for pumpkin fro-yo. What kid doesn't like frozen yogurt with all the fixings.

3. Pumpkin Soup: Just add a dollop of sour cream and pumpkin seeds to add a little texture or enjoy it as is for a great meal. A Trader Joe's staffer even mentioned this could be a delicious cold soup on hot days like those we've experienced this fall in California. Add this great soup to a full course meal at home. You'll surely impress dinner guests with this option and don't forget the pumpkin pie for dessert to round out a pumpkin dinner theme.

 4. Pumpkin pancakes: This is another yummy Trader Joe's find. In fact their store is filled with so many pumpkin-flavored options. So many you have to see for yourself and if there's something you must try it's TJ's pumpkin cake and waffle mix. This is a fun family breakfast choice to combine with carving jack-o-lanterns.

What are your favorite fall pumpkin flavors?
