Pumpkin Spice Latte - Easy


Just about everywhere you turn this October, just about every post on just about every blog has a recipe using pumpkin.  It's like, if a recipe was perfectly fine before, toss in some pumpkin and call it brand new. Pumpkin soup.  Pumpkin Oreos.  Pumpkin oatmeal. 

So I give up and stirred pumpkin into an otherwise fine and dandy dessert drink.

It also has my favorite: couscous with mushrooms and onions.
