Before demands for egg nog and hot chocolate completely overtake your family's beverage wish list, enjoy the season of crunchy leaves and crisp harvest scents with a tall glass of pumpkin juice. Your child will love the spiced dessert drink — how could anyone
not like a beverage that is essentially a pie in a cup? What You Need:
2 packages of pumpkin spice flavored pudding mix
2 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Liquid measuring cup
What You Do:
Grab the blender jar off the base of your blender.
Let your child fill the liquid measuring cup with 2 cups of whole milk.
Help her carefully pour the milk into the blender jar.
Help her measure out 1 teaspoon of nutmeg using the measuring spoons.
Let her place the spice into the blender jar.
Help her to measure 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and dump it in the jar as well.
Let your child open each box of pumpkin spice pudding mix and remove the inner packages.
Tear open each package for your child.
Have her pour each package of pudding mix into the blender jar.
Place the blender jar back onto the base of the blender.
Attach the lid firmly in place.
Pulse for a few seconds until the liquid is thoroughly mixed.
Remove the blender jar from its base.
Help your child evenly divide the pumpkin juice between two glasses.
Help your child measure out another teaspoon of cinnamon.
Let her sprinkle the cinnamon evenly over both glasses.
Pick a lovely fall spot — preferably outdoors — and enjoy your yummy beverage with your child.
