Of course, it’s pretty easy to make a pumpkin spice latte in your home, and a lot cheaper as well. Over the years, these seasonal drinks have crept up in price, and it makes more and more sense to save the money. Still, there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself once in a while.
Even when you live in a warm climate, there is something nourishing and right about eating a bowl of pumpkin soup in the fall. Pumpkin soup is a flavorsome starter or lunch favorite; it’s best to make pumpkin soup with fresh pumpkins and to eat it with warm crusty bread from the oven.
Pumpkin soup is also very easy to make. Ensure you have some fresh cooking pumpkins to work with – carving pumpkins don’t have enough pumpkin meat inside them. Before putting the pumpkin in the blender, saute it in a pan with some ginger, coconut milk, and chili powder.
