This warm drink combines two of my favorite flavors: pumpkin spices and chocolate. Really, you can’t go wrong here. Even though fall doesn’t officially start until September 23rd, it was here the moment I took a drink of this spicy, comforting hot chocolate drink.
When I saw this picture of a pumpkin white hot chocolate on Pinterest, I knew I had to recreate it. It is as good as it looks and sounds. The spicy flavors of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves meld perfectly with creamy white chocolate. The result is a rich, delectable drink that is fabulous on a chilly autumn evening.
Don’t forget when you are drinking it, the pumpkin is providing you with vitamin A, C, and E, as well as calcium, iron, potassium, copper, and manganese. I’d say that totally makes up for the sugar from the white chocolate chips, wouldn’t you?Print

Looking for a caffeinated coffee pumpkin drink? Averie at Loves Veggies and Yoga posted a recipe for a homemade version of Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spiced Lattes last week. Check that one out if you want a coffee version. For me, this white chocolate version is perfect way to satisfy my pumpkin spiced latte craving without giving Baby Bean the shakes from caffeine. And with the addition of chocolate. That’s always a good thing. Enjoy!
this looks so good!! thanks for linking up!

Even though it was 100 degrees here today, I think that looks amazing. I can’t wait to make it!
I am not a big white chocolate fan, but I am thinking this would be fabulous with some dark chocolate 🙂

I was eating white chocolate chips yesterday – couldn’t resist – and was thinking, “gosh, these would be SO good with pumpkin.” 🙂 Looks and sounds delicious. Can’t wait for the first cold day – I’m going to make this instead of my usual hot chocolate. 🙂
We’ve had a few nice, chilly days so far. 🙂
That sounds delicious! I’m jumping into the pumpkin drinks/foods with both feet!
Why not, right?!

Maryea, your white hot chocolate sounds and looks fabulous. Thanks for linking up to my pumpkin spice latte coffee version.
I am a HUGE white choc fan (cough, cough) my last post of white chocolate fudge should prove that 🙂 and your hot choc sounds delish!
I can´t imagine a more soothing and delicious fall drink. I´ve never tried combining pumpkin and white chocolate but it sounds amazing! And of course the pumpkin makes up for the sugar in the chips. 😉

I’ve been making my own simple version of the Pumpkin Latte… but this looks like it would blow the socks of it! I always have a supply of white chocolate so I’ll be makeing this recipe in a little bit as an afternoon treat for the kids.
I hope everyone enjoyed it! 🙂
