Foodbuzz Tastemaker: Godiva Pumpkin Spiced Vegan Latte



Yes, for those that LIKE my page on Facebook, I mentioned that if the baby was not born last night that I would post my Plum Cake Tatin, but I am afraid I am going to have to wait. Let me tantalize you a little, OK? Oh wait, I might be already be doing that with this baby. LOL




A while ago Foodbuzz sent me two bags of Godiva Coffee's latest seasonal flavors, Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Pecan Bark – available nationally, for a limited time only! These flavors are inspired by Godiva's most popular chocolates and crafted with high quality, medium-roasted, 100% Arabica beans for a rich, smooth taste. 






 I really liked both flavors despite having one in my household that really just does not like flavored coffee. I still brewed both and had Ryan taste them as well. He thought they were both pleasant while I thought they were really smooth. 


I finally decided to make a Pumpkin Spiced Latte because I had been REALLY wanting one most coffee shops syrup has dairy so I made my own with coconut milk. YUM!



I like opening the bag and smelling the spices for this coffee. Ryan told me this morning that I have been really obsessed with pumpkin recipes. Have I? I am glad he noticed. Tis the season for pumpkin recipes, what can I say?? I could not even tantalize him with a cup of my latte, but he is more of a mocha guy.



I used Pumpkin Pie Mix because it was already sweetened with cane juice and it had all the spices. I just added a b it more ground cinnamon, 1/2 Tablespoon agave nectar, and hot coconut milk. It was pretty good! No dairy and very seasonal. 

Go out and find this coffee while you can. Godiva DOES have other flavors, so go check out their website!

Who wants to try this coffee?  I have a coupon for $2.00 OFF a 12-ounce bag of their coffee.

Just leave me a comment with your favorite pumpkin recipe or favorite Thanksgiving recipe. Open to US readers.

I will choose a winner by the end of the day so I can mail it by tomorrow in case the baby arrives. :D

If you cannot find canned Pumpkin Pie mix then use regular pumpkin puree and add your own spices: 1/4 teaspoon allspice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves.

Heat coconut milk in a medium pot and add the canned pumpkin pie mix, agave nectar and heat until frothy. Divide between two mugs and add brewed coffee. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Enjoy!

I must say my favorite pumpkin recipe is a favorite of everyone at Thanksgiving: Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake. 5 years ago it was difficult to find but these days a google search for it brings up a dozen or so variations. People really go crazy for it.
