Coffee, be gone!

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

I am 100% certain that I am addicted to the Pumpkin Spice Latte at starbucks.

This morning I was craving the Pumpkin Spice and my withdrawls started to kick it, I was craving it. It was only 7 hours before then that I had my last cup. Noooooo!

So in attempt to try and be creative, I tried to create a money saving alternative for Pumpkin Spice latte, literally!


I microwaved a cup of Original Breeze Almond Milk for 2 minutes
Whilst adding pumpkin spice/vanilla extract to the mix
After stirring the hot contents together, I strained it into my coffee cup
Added two packets of French Vanilla Stevia

RESULT: It was a tad bit spicy, I either almost choked or I had the most weirdest tingling itch in my throat. Needless to say, I didn't finish it. :o( This may sound silly now that I think about it, but I added 1 Tbsn of pumpkin spice to one cup of Almond milk. That may have been was just TOO much! So I would attempt to make it again, BUT I only have a few VIA instant coffee left.


I bought a Venti Skinny Pumpkin Spice, I told the man to make it Decaf. Halfway through I realized he must have made a mistake, it wasn't decaf! I was shaky, loss my concentration, and was very forgetful. Darn! goodbye sleep :o(





 I added the pumpkin butter to my oats, along with: Salba, Cinnamon, Pumkin Spice, and PB! it was yum.

I bought these at TJ's last night! Although the sugar content wasn't that bad, it was too sweet for my taste. The pumpkin butter was really sweet and the cranberry apple butter was sour and tangy. So that together makes a good combination. I ate half of each on one cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread.

Speaking of Raisins!

I was a Raisin for Halloween two years ago. I was thinking of being a Grape this year, but nay, maybe next year?

I hope you guys enjoy your week.

I really wish I had access to a TJs!! I'll have to go to one some day! ha.

I think you should definitely be a grape for Halloween next year, that's a good idea ; )

Happy Wednesday!

I was TOTALLY gonna tell you to get some pumpkin butter to mix into your coffee!!!!!!! AND THEN I SAW THE PIC!!!! Put some in there!!! It's not the same as Bux (because that shiz is just way too amazing to match) but it comes somewhat close.

I'm driving home tomorrow and you better believe I'll have some pumpkin spice while driving!

OMG! Your face in that pic as a raisin is priceless. I was a California Raisin many moons ago and I don't think I looked as cute as you. I hate it when you pay for things at restos and they screw up! UGH!!!!
