Here’s the scene: You have just scarfed down a massive meal complete with turkey, stuffing, sweet potato pie, and any number of starchy, salty, and generally delicious sides. Then you flop on the couch to watch football during that tryptophan-induced, comatose state that teeters on the edge of consciousness. Soon after, you want to hype yourself up for an evening (or very early morning) of Black Friday shopping, but you can’t shake the coma.

We’ve got the joe for you.

In lieu of (or perhaps in addition to) the pumpkin pie, why not try a delicious pumpkin frappuccino made from fresh espresso? Save a bit of pumpkin puree from the pie and whip up this sweet, caffeinated treat. Here’s how:

  1. Use Third Wave Water to brew ⅓ cup espresso.
  2. In a blender, combine espresso with ⅓ cup milk (use coconut or almond for lactose-free options), 1 cup ice, 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon sugar (or stevia if you prefer), ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon. Blend until ice chunks are smooth.
  3. Pour into a glass and add toppings, such as caramel, cinnamon syrup, and obviously - whipped cream.

There you have it! Nothing like a dose of pumpkin-y caffeine to shake that tryptophan and gear you up for Black Friday madness. If you aren’t a #pumpkinspiceeverything lover, try these recipes for Irish Creme or Vanilla Bean Horchata.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Third Wave Water!
