Best Pumpkin Spice Latte EVER

Last week I made my first trip to Trader Joe's. I know, I'm late to the party. I've seen and heard about Trader Joe's for years but never really had the opportunity to go to one until I moved to Austin. (no excuses, I've been here two years....) Anyway, I saw someone post about their "Everything But The Bagel" seasoning and I decided it was finally time that I see what all the hype was about with my own two eyes. I went with my grocery list plus super high expectations for snacks/random items I didn't need but knew I would grab anyway. 

After spending nearly an hour in the store and grabbing a cart full of "unnecessary items", I made my way to the checkout line. Then the TJ Maxx aisle got me. Let me know when you go to TJ Maxx and they have shelf after shelf that you have to walk next to before you checkout? Well Trader Joe's has something similar. And just like I always grab a dog toy or coffee mug on my way to pay at TJ MAxx, I added more stuff in my cart at my new TJ....Trader Joe's. 

That item? Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage. Think coffee creamer mixed with pumpkin puree and cinnamon. 

Here's how I use the item...
NINJA COFFEE BAR: Make my go-to Cafe Forte in my favorite Rae Dunn mug. 
Whip 1/8 cup of vanilla creamer with a splash of the "Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage"
Pour (gently!) on top of my coffee and sprinkle with cinnamon. 

There you have it, the perfect October coffee!
