My kids call the vanilla base "Hot Vanilla" and drink it as a sweet before bed treat or after a cold day outside like they would Hot Chocolate.
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.
