Hot Pumpkin Spice Drink to Create Your Own Hygge

If you’re looking for something cozy, this Hot Pumpkin Spice Drink is exactly what you need! It’s delicious in the morning as a coffee substitute, and comforting in the evening when you need to wind down and relax. You can think of it as a hot chocolate made with pumpkin, or a pumpkin spice latte without the espresso. In either case, don’t skimp on the whipped cream ;)

The most common translation of this Danish word, pronounced “hoo-ga” is “coziness”, but from what I can gather, it doesn’t quite fully capture the meaning. Think of sitting by the fireplace while wearing thick socks, or a dinner gathering with friends drinking hot stew around a rustic table. Hygge is encapsulated in those moments.

It’s something I’ve been trying to create at my own home lately. As I write this, the puppy is snuggled on my lap against my baby bump, and I’m sipping on a mug of this Hot Pumpkin Spice Drink. We’ve lit a scented candle, so there’s a bit of yellow glow in the corner of my eye and the faint sweet smell of pine. It’s all quite perfect, though I think I might need to just shut down the computer, relax and enjoy the hygge.

Don’t worry, before I do that, I”ll leave you with the recipe for this Hot Pumpkin Spice Drink. You can think of it like a hot chocolate, but made with pumpkin. Or as a pumpkin spice latte, but without the espresso. Or you can think of it as it’s own thing – a Hot Pumpkin Spice Drink that’s sure to bring hygge to your home. It’s perfect for this time of year. If I were only still young enough to go trick-or-treating, I am sure I’d love a mug of this when I was done running around the neighborhood (hint hint from all the kiddos out there)! ;)

  1. As a fellow pregnant momma this looks like the perfect, caffeine free drink to get my hygge on… yummmm

    • Congrats to you! I’ll be making a slight variation of this for a kid’s birthday party (a chilled version), so you can keep this recipe in mind for when the little one grows up too ;)

  2. This sounds sooooooo good! I would probably add espresso anyway, because I’m an addict, but this is a great caffeine free version of the most popular drink ever! Gorgeous photos! And congrats on the bump :)

  3. Baby bump? Congratulations. First the puppy and now this.

    Thanks for a delicious sounding drink recipe. I love pumpkin and have been in pumpkin pie making/eating overload lately.

  4. I’m digging the Swedish fika thing which sounds similar. Whatever you wanna call it this drink sounds awesome.
