It may be Fall, but I would like to know where has our fall weather gone? It's been really hot lately! My kids ride the bus home from school and my poor little girl steps off the bus so sweaty. I feel bad making them ride the bus when it's this humid and hot in the afternoons.
Today was their lucky day though, because I had a special cold and creamy after-school treat waiting for them! A Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Shake. Made with Vanilla ice cream, Coffee-mate Pumpkin Spice Creamer and topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Mmm, yummy!
Just because the weather's not cooperating, doesn't mean I don't want to enjoy all the different flavors of fall. One of my favorite morning rituals is, after dropping the kids off at school, coming home to enjoy a cup of delicious coffee with my hubby!
If you like creamer in your coffee, then I'm sure by now you've seen that the Coffee-mate seasonal flavors are available again.
The seasonal Fall flavors include: Spiced Latte and Pumpkin Spice (the one I used in our shakes- recipe at the bottom.) Other seasonal flavors include Eggnog Latte, Peppermint Mocha and Dark Chocolate Fudge. The Coffee-mate seasonal flavors are only available September-December so get them while you can!
Did you know you can use Coffee-mate creamers in recipes? It's true, you can bake with them or use them in no-bake recipes like I did. It's a great way to add flavors to your recipes.
Here are a couple of ideas to get you started, but be sure to check out all the different recipes over at the Coffee-mate website. (I've already added several to my to-do list.)
And of course my Pumpkin Spice Shakes.
