Pumpkin Spiced Dinners, Desserts, Drinks & More
Let’s be real, one of the best parts about summer coming to an end is that everything pumpkin spice flavored is now in stores! From yogurt covered pretzels, to coffee, donuts, and even protein powder, the flavor seems to be everywhere (and we’re not complaining!)
1010data even did a study on the number of pumpkin spiced-flavored products available online from August to December of 2016, and found that the number of pumpkin spiced products for sale had risen by nearly 50 percent as compared to the previous years! We don’t foresee these numbers coming down anytime soon either, because it seems like there’s even more pumpkin spiced products and recipes out there!

The Pumpkin Pie flavor from Halo Top was just announced and we couldn’t be more excited! If you haven’t heard, Halo Top is an up-and-coming ice cream brand which has become very popular this past year for being a protein-packed ice cream with less sugar, but somehow tastes exactly like regular ice cream. This limited edition flavor packs a whopping 20 grams of protein and only has 360 calories in the entire pint!
Taste and Tell crafted a slightly pumpkiny, slightly spicy chili recipe that will be a sure hit this fall. We love slow cooker recipes because they are great for working parents. You can just mix everything up the night before and then in the morning, put it in the slow cooker on low, and when you get home you have a delicious meal waiting for you. How convenient!
This pumpkin glaze from Bakeaholic Mama can be used on your turkey legs, chicken wings, or even as a glaze for a chicken breast! A truly festive recipe that will be the talk of your next tailgate or football party. Yummy!
Alright, so we may have included one “basic” item, but could we really write about pumpkin spiced items without at least mentioning Starbucks®?
Starbucks released a new bottled Pumpkin Spice Latte this year, every girl went crazy on social media - and we don’t blame them! For those of you that enjoy a very sweet and creamy coffee, this bottled Pumpkin Spiced Latte is perfect for you!
We love this idea of adding a pumpkin mayo to chicken tacos for a light meal, while still getting that warm and comforting feeling from the pumpkin. Make this recipe from Cooking and Beer for the entire family in just 30 minutes!
Most kids (and adults) can agree on one thing - Mac n Cheese is one of the best comfort foods. We would even go as far as saying it should be in it’s own food group! However, we should warn you, if you make this fall twist on Mac n Cheese, you might not make boxed mac n cheese ever again.
If you’re a gym rat that also enjoys the sweet taste of fall, then then a Pumpkin Spiced Protein Powder might be your next obsession. Whether you’re just chugging some protein after a hard workout, adding this to a sweet potato based smoothie, or using it to make protein pancakes, you won’t be disappointed in the outcome!
This sweet cinnamon take on hummus (a chickpea dip) should be required at every tailgate and fall party. We suggest using scoops, sweet potato chips, or veggies to load up on this Pumpkin Hummus. Or, use it as a spread for a chicken wrap to add a sweet fall flavor.
This snack might taste like cookie dough, but we promise it’s a healthier alternative! This grab and go snack is perfect for on-the-go mom’s, and it can be made in just 10 quick minutes! Or, you can even pack these in your kids lunch boxes! Delicious and nutritious!
