Pumpkin Milk (with a vanilla milk base)
Great way to use up that last little bit of pumpkin left in the can after making a recipe. I often make a mugful in place of coffee in the evening when I don't really want caffeine.

How to Make Pumpkin Milk (with a vanilla milk base)
- Stir all ingredients together in a heavy bottomed saucepan. For vanilla milk omit pumpkin. Cook over medium heat until warmed through but DO NOT BOIL.
Taste to adjust sweetness or spice just before mixture reaches desired temperature.
- Serve hot with a dusting of cinnamon. Yummy!
