Pumpkin Spice and everything nice…

Published On November 2, 2018 | By Gypsy | Featured, Little Extras

Pumpkin Spice, from pies to lattes, Pumpkin Spice makes everything nice!

It’s a weather thing. The sun shifts it’s journey and so does our desire for certain flavours. Pumpkin is everywhere this time of year, the humble orange gourde moves easily from savoury to sweet in an instant.

The scent of pumpkin pie has become synonymous with falling leaves and sweaters. I’m frequently amused by the depth of marketing of all things pumpkin spice related – from candles to pizza. (Imma’ skip the pumpkin spice pizza, k?!)

Confession: NOT a pumpkin latte kind of gal, but I do love a tasty slab of pumpkin pie!


This is my favourite blend of Pumpkin Spice. Not too heavy in either cinnamon or clove. Ginger gives it that signature kick while the undertone of nutmeg and allspice gives our house spice blend a rich scent and balanced tone.

You can substitute this spice blend in any of your fall recipes involving apple, pear, pumpkin or sweet potato you can even sprinkle it on your morning oatmeal! Test it in our featured recipe – Super Healthy Pumpkin Muffins – for a dash of fall warm autumn spice.
