Fall is finally upon us, which means leaves changing, weather cooling, the days get shorter and pumpkin spiced everything. Not sure who on Earth ever thought pumpkin tasted good enough to create a spice out of it, but I’m not here to judge. For those of you that do enjoy your pumpkin flavor, check out the below recipe for a twist on the pumpkin spice latte. Since there’s weed in it, I MAY try it, but not I’m making any promises!

It’s Pumpkin Spice Season! If you enjoy the season’s favorite coffee drink, the Pumpkin Spice Latte, imagine how much better a Marijuana Pumpkin Spice Latte would be! It’s easy to make at home.
I like to use decarboxylated dry ice kief to medicate this recipe, but you could also use infused cream or milk if you have that. Think link will teach you all about cooking with kief and hash, and this link to will take you to an easy 2-minute video that shows just how easy to is to make dry ice kief.
(PS in my ingredient photo below, I forgot to put the bottle of vanilla extract in there (I hate it when I do that), but don’t forget it when you make the drink as it helps give the Pumpkin Spice Latte a rich complex flavor.)
A note about the Dosing on this recipe!
