vegan pumpkin hot chocolate {recipe}

You guys already know I love chocolate milk a million times over. 

But also, did you know, I love pumpkin so, so much?

Because I do. I really do.

Last weekend I decided to make El Duke and El SamSam these cookies. That's not what I'm here to tell you about today, but while I have your attention: make those cookies. They're crazy good and anytime I can get a fruit (/basically almost a vegetable) in a cookie is a time I can feel 100 percent OK with eating the whole batch in one weekend. Which, we did.  

However, today I need to tell you about something even better than those cookies (which is saying a lot). It is the marriage of two of my most favorite things:  

the chocolate beverage 
pumpkin hot chocolate

Did I mention it's vegan?

It's vegan. 

You guys.

I can't even. 

I don't even know how to tell you how quickly you need to run to the kitchen and make this stuff. 

Here's what you're going to need to do for my version (inspired by this one, but obviously I couldn't just follow her instructions. That would be way too easy.)

2 C. almond milk (this is my fav, fav kind, btw. If you've yet to try it - get to trying! 
PS Am I bossy today?)
2 C. of water (add more if it tastes too rich)
1/4 C. pumpkin (canned is fine)
3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
3 T unsweetened cocoa
4 T agave
Dash of salt

To make:
Put everything in pot on stove top on medium heat
Whisk until blended and liquefied
Pour in favorite mug 
...and enjoy :)

Told ya it was easy - and tasty!

Let me know if you try it :) 

PS Don't be mad but I poured mine over ice. I had to. It was amaze.
PPS I also added some of the leftovers to my coffee yesterday.
PPPS Next time I am going to try it with vanilla and make a latte because I mostly prefer it to chocolate.

OK that's all,  promise.
