It’s officially Pumpkin Spice season! If you can’t get enough of pumpkin spice, maybe you are looking for a few more ways to indulge in your favorite fall flavor this year. Here are a few ways to add a little more spice (of the pumpkin variety) into your life. Prepare your wallet, because you may want to buy everything you are about to see.
Treat yourself to a Pumpkin Spice Latte - obviously
Is there really any other way to kick off Pumpkin Spice season? Probably not. Head to your nearest Starbucks and order that PSL with pride. Yes, you want whipped cream, with a little sprinkle of cinnamon too! If you are looking for a healthier option, order a nonfat latte and ask for two pumps of pumpkin instead!
Get baking in the kitchen
Trader Joe’s has some legit pumpkin spice products to whip up in the kitchen. Go on a shopping spree and make sure to grab their Pumpkin Bread/Muffin Mix and a box of their Pumpkin Pancake Mix. Invite some friends over, turn on some spooky movies, make some muffins AND pancakes, and have a night. Can you get more fall than that? To add some extra goodness, top the muffins with semi-sweet chocolate chips before putting them in the oven; it’s a game changer!
A perfectly pumpkin snack on the go
Are you a lover of quick and easy snacks that taste good? The One Pumpkin Pie flavored protein bar is your next snacking addiction. Not only does it taste good, but it packs in tons of nutrients to help you get through your day. With 21 grams of protein, nine grams of fiber and only one gram of sugar, this may be the healthiest pumpkin pie you will ever eat. Who knows - maybe it will replace the pie on the dinner table Thanksgiving Day.
Spa Night In
Make your night-in extra festive by doing these DIY pumpkin spice face masks and body scrubs! They are both super easy to make and can help you get relaxed while staying in season. Make them in bulk and store in a mason jar so you can use them all autumn long. Plus, they’ll look cute stored away in glass jars. They honestly might taste really good too…
Pumpkin Spiced Wine
Yes, you heard that right: pumpkin spiced wine. Three Lakes Winery whips up batches of semi-sweet pumpkin wine for only $12.95 a bottle. If you are a white wine girl, this could be for you. TLW says it has very similar qualities to a Chardonnay, making it a huge crowd-pleaser. Use the link here to grab yourself one right now. Sip on it at your next fall-themed dinner or save it all for yourself. Or, if wine isn’t your thing, this recipe for pumpkin pie martinis will put your party into pumpkin spice-mode.
