For this nutritious fall drink recipe, you’ll need some simple ingredients readily available in your kitchen. Gather nonfat milk, a half of a graham cracker sheet for a hint of sweetness, some indulgent half-and-half to add creaminess, rich pumpkin puree that captures all the flavors of the season, a sprinkle of aromatic pumpkin pie spice, a drizzle of maple syrup for a touch of sweetness, and don’t forget to add ice for a refreshing chill. Get ready to enjoy the cozy flavors of fall in every sip!
If you want to make this a pumpkin espresso martini, feel free to add in a shot of espresso into each serving!
To prepare this mocktail, start by placing the graham cracker into a food processor. Process until it becomes fine, adding a dash of pumpkin spice for extra flavor if you wish. This will serve as a flavorful rim for your martini glass, adding an extra layer of texture and taste to your mocktail.
Next, dip the rim of your martini glass into milk and then into the graham cracker dust. This step ensures that the graham cracker crumbs stick to the glass, giving your mocktail a professional, bar-made look.
To make the mocktail itself, take a cocktail shaker or a mason jar with a lid. Add the half-and-half, milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup and ice. Shake the mixture to combine all the ingredients. The shaking process not only mixes the ingredients but also chills the mocktail and adds a frothy texture.
Pro Tip: If you don’t want to use graham crackers on the rim, simply use cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. (Note: This would eliminate one Extra from the recipe if you’re on Nutrisystem.) Then you can feel free to top your pumpkin pie martini with a tablespoon of whipped topping as pictured (1 Tablespoon of whipped cream = 1 Extra on Nutrisystem)! This would really give your drink that pumpkin pie look and fit just as well into your Nutrisystem weight loss plan.
Strain the mixture into two glasses, making sure to strain out the ice. Pouring the mocktail through a strainer ensures a smooth, ice-free drink while still maintaining the chilled temperature.
For the final touch, garnish your Pumpkin Pie Martini Mocktail with a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. This not only adds a beautiful visual element but also enhances the aroma and flavor of the drink.
And voila! You have a healthy, delicious and aesthetically pleasing Pumpkin Pie Martini Mocktail that perfectly captures the essence of fall in a glass. Enjoy this refreshing drink on a crisp autumn day, and it’s sure to warm your soul.
