Pumpkin Spice White Chocolate Frappucino


With October closing out and still a love of all things pumpkin spice… I thought I’d share a new recipe for Pumpkin Spice White Chocolate Frappucino. I recently tried a recipe for a Pumpkin Spice Frappucino that I was no impressed with (it tasted watery), so I decided to come up with my own recipe.

Here it is…

Pumpkin Spice White Chocolate Frappucino

  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 ounces white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup coffee, cooled to room temperature
  • 5 large scoops vanilla ice cream

Heat the milk, pumpkin puree, spices and vanilla in a sauce pan until it just starts to simmer and remove form heat.

Add the chocolate and stir until it has melted. Let cool to room temperature. Makes approx 4 cups. (Can drink alone as Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate)

In blender, put in 1 cup coffee, 1 cup of pumpkin spice white chocolate mix, and ice cream. Blend until thick.

Pour in cups and top with whip cream and cinnamon.

The recipes this week have turned out to be some of my new favorites! I’ve never had Eggplant Parmesan before + was really surprised how much I liked it…. even though the recipe misrepresented the cooking time. Not to leave out the cookies this week… they are really tasty! They turned out really light + fluffy even though the picture made them look more like a chewy cookie. Without further adieu… here they are:


Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes via Food Network ~ we added about a 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese to these as well. They were also a huge hit at last year’s Thanksgiving dinner.


White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies via Tasty Kitchen ~ mmmm I want one now!

Eggplant Parmesan via Food Network ~ be forewarned, the recipe states 1 hr + 20 mins total time, but it will take you more like 2 hours.

Hazelnut Chicken via AllRecipes.com  ~ {we haven’t been able to locate hazelnuts in our grocery store, so we substituted slivered almonds}


White Chocolate Conversation Heart Bark via Edible Crafts


Curry Salad via Rachael Ray Magazine ~ {this recipe suggests using turkey as it was part of a Thanksgiving leftovers issue, but we use leftover roasted chicken usually + serve over spinach instead of in a pita}


Spicy Pineapple Chicken with Rice + Peas via Rachael Ray Magazine ~ {this recipe blew me away! Something I wouldn’t normally think to try, but it turned out amazing + will be added to a regular rotation}


Hope you like these recipes + give them a try!
