Pumpkin Pulp Cupcakes & Pumpkin Spice Latte
It’s Halloween and we’ve been in the kitchen to come up with some delicious recipes you can do with your juicer (or even without, totally doable). In our case we use the Omega 8006 masticating juicer but any juicer will do.
Here at BestJuicer.net we hate it if things go to waste so we put on our thinking caps and thought about a great seasonal recipe that you can do with the pumpkin pulp. Generally, squash doesn’t have that much juice yield but on the other hand produce a lot of that beautiful, orange and moist pulp that you can use to make all sorts of things, pancakes, soups, cupcakes etc…
In this recipe we decided to go for the latter because we wanted a healthy snack that would fit into this season, so we used a lot of spices and a little bit of natural sweetener to satisfy our sweet tooth. Of course we covered everything in a short video that you can watch here and I’m sure it will make you want to head into your kitchen, clean off the dust from your juicer and start juicing, cooking and baking.
I’m sure you know one of these from your favorite coffee houses. But this one is different. While the lattes you can buy in a coffee shop are atrociously sweet, this recipe is very different because it uses all natural ingredients: fresh pumpkin juice, our home-made spice mix and fresh milk (if you’re a vegan, you can absolutely use soy milk, works just as well).
The beauty of this recipe is that you can be incredible flexible with the spices and other ingredients you add. Do you like it more spicey? Maybe add some cayenne? You have a sweet tooth? Add a bit more agave, this recipe is just my starting point and very much open to experimentation. I’d love to see your variations on Instagram or Facebook.
Preparation is dead simple. Use your juicer to get the pumpkin or squash juice. If you don’t have a juicer, you can add the pumpkin into your blender and then squeeze out the liquid with some cheese cloth.
Mix all the spices into one thick paste which you then stir into the juice. Prepare your milk and espresso with what you have at home. I used my automatic espresso machine, but an espresso maker for the stove would work just as well.
Lastly, add your pumpkin spice shot into your caffè latte, stir until all is well dissolved and most importantly — enjoy!
I think these are my favorites so far. The best thing about them is that you can eat them without remorse. So, when you’re a little hungry have them ready at your desk for a little go-between meals.
Of course, you need a little more than the pumpkin pulp for this recipe. But all those ingredients are natural and healthy. There is a special ingredient called tonkabean, if you can’t get it, no worries, it’s very similar to nutmeg but much stronger.
First, mix the dry ingredients thoroughly. In a seperate bowl mix the wet ingredients and whisk them all together. Add the batter into a muffin tin or simply muffin liners. Then heat the oven to about 200° celsius or 390 fahrenheit for about 30 minutes. ENJOY!
