Attention all pumpkin spice lovers! Did you know that there is an entire world full of pumpkin spice possibilities that you may be missing out on?

Sure, you can buy the pumpkin spice bagels at the store or see what your coffee shop is offering. But you can do a lot of fun pumpkin spice combinations at home too. Here are a few of the best ways to add more pumpkin spice to your life.

Spice Up Your Coffee

You don’t have to go to the cafe to add pumpkin spice to your morning drink. Add some store-bought pumpkin spice flavor to your coffee… or even your whipped cream. As a bonus, you can use any extra whipped cream to top your favorite pumpkin pie.

Add Some to Your Pasta

Pumpkin ravioli and other pumpkin recipes can be the perfect way to get the tastes of fall. Why not add just a sprinkle of pumpkin spice to the dish?

Make Pancakes, Waffles, or French Toast

Pumpkin spice and a little bit of vanilla extract is a wonderful way to make a delicious breakfast. You can just add a small sprinkle of the spice into your regular pancake mix or to the egg mixture when you make french toast. Pumpkin spice tastes particularly wonderful with pure maple syrup.

Season Popcorn

If you haven’t discovered the world of seasoning your own popcorn, there’s no better time to try! After you cook your popcorn, add a little bit of butter, sugar, and pumpkin spice to it. Or, just add a little bit of melted white chocolate and pumpkin spice. Try this for a Halloween movie night!

Include It in Granola

Pumpkin spice complements flavors in granola well. Add a dash of the spice to the granola you get from the store or make your own simple granola. Mix oats, your choice of sweetener (maple syrup and honey work well), pumpkin spice, and canola oil. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet, cook for 15 minutes, and you’ll have a delicious breakfast for crisp fall mornings.

Make a Sugar Scrub

Who says pumpkin spice is only good for eating? Mix one cup of brown sugar, half a cup of oil, a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, and half a teaspoon of vanilla extract. You can also add a little bit of vitamin E oil if you want. Store it in a cute jar and enjoy this exfoliating scrub throughout autumn.
