Pumpkin Spice Up Your Life

Oct 17, 2016 03:31AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food



Certain flavors are synonymous with fall, and pumpkin spice tops the list. Dozens of seasonal products now feature everyone’s favorite fall flavor, but if your inner chef is calling, it’s easier than ever to whip up decadent pumpkin desserts at home.

Some outside-the-box ways to infuse pumpkin into your fall foods include:

  • Pumpkin-flavored cream cheese with a warm bagel for breakfast
  • Cider with a dash of pumpkin spice for a quick warmup
  • Pumpkin coffee creamer to get the day started
  • Pumpkin cookie dough to end the day on a sweet note

Seasonal ingredients such as these make it simple to capture that rich pumpkin flavor in creative ways. Many of these high-quality pumpkin products can be found at grocery stores like ALDI, where items are easy to find and even easier on your wallet.

Go for a delicious dessert such as a Pumpkin Pie Shake or a Pumpkin Creme Brulee with ingredients offered at ALDI. Explore more ideas for spicing up your fall dessert menu at aldi.us.
