4 bags rooibos tea
2 Tbsp pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3 splashes vanilla extract
3 pinches mineral salt
2 to 4 doonks THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder (to taste) (or 2 to 3 tsp THM Sweet Blend)
1 tsp THM MCT oil (or ½ tsp coconut oil) (*see note below)
2 tsp THM Pristine Protein Powder (*or 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk)
ice cubes and cold water (optional)
Steep the rooibos tea bags in a mug of boiled water for several minutes. Discard the tea bags and pour the tea into a blender with all the remaining ingredients except the ice (if using). Blend until smooth and frothy. This your Pumpkin Pie Sip concentrate.
Now take a second to muse upon whether you want your drink chilled and refreshing or hot and soothing.
For a Chilled Pumpkin Pie Sip…
Pour the concentrate into a 2-quart jar. Fill to the brim with ice cubes, then pour in the concentrate and top off with cold water.
Stir, taste, and adjust the flavors until it rocks your holiday world.
For a Hot and Soothing Pumpkin Pie Sip
For a hot sip, pour the concentrate into a 2-quart jar and add enough boiling water to reach the top. Taste and adjust as necessary.
You can put this yummy mixture in a large stay warm carafe (cheap from Walmart) and use an insulated cup for when you are on the go.
You can replace oil and whey protein powder with ½ cup unsweetened almond milk, if you don't have those ingredients. Sip your pumpkin pie all day, but please don't forget to enjoy it at night by the fireside, too. Great antidote to the evening snackies. Enjoy!
