Part One: The Pumpkin Puree

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

  • Set in the oven to keep warm while you complete these next steps.

Part Two: Prepare the Coffee

Prepare 2oz shots of espresso per person. If you don’t have an espresso machine, make a pot of extra strong coffee or even better, go for french press.

Part Three: Spike & Assemble

  • Pour 2 oz of coffee into a tall glass

  • Add a one 5mg single dose of the Green Revolution Paradise Indica Tincture and stir

  • Then add the pumpkin puree leaving about 2 inches of room from the rim

  • Fill those top 2 inches with whipped cream (or add the extra mile and prepare your own homemade whip)

  • Garnish with fresh ground cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg, dried banana slices and a couple dried cranberries.
