One of the best things about fall is the amazing pumpkin recipes that get made. In particular, I’m loving this pumpkin punch recipe.
It’s a creamy, full flavor alcohol free pumpkin drink, and just so refreshing. Basically the perfect fall mocktails for kids.
Super versatile and ready to serve a crowd, I think this pumpkin pie drink is definitely going on my list as one of the top drinks for fall.
Now if only I had a big fall party to bring this drink to!
And the best part of this pumpkin flavored drink is just how easy it is to put together. Your kiddos could definitely help make this punch and they’ll love taking part!
Honestly, this comes together in minutes and will be ready to serve immediately with some ice, or you can chill it overnight. And it’s gluten-free and dairy free, so it’s allergy-friendly if you want to take it to your kid’s school. Perfect for a last-minute fall party drink, if you ask me!
Plus, this is really tasty stuff, even for adults. Brings together two wonderful fall drinks with a little fizz and cinnamon bite. When I decided to make this pumpkin spice punch, I really had no idea how much my kids would like it.
But, they were in the kitchen with a cup in hand almost immediately (it smells WONDERFUL) and the punch bowl was drained in minutes. For real. Minutes. I wouldn’t have been able to get a cup if I hadn’t elbowed through the crowd and insisted that “hey, I made this, so I get some!”
It was so good, in fact, if I were going to make this pumpkin spice punch for a party, I might consider doubling the recipe, it just goes so fast!
One thing I would change, however, is adding some ice. Not that this recipe really needs to be chilled, but wouldn’t it be SUPER CUTE to have little pumpkin ice cubes in the punch? I think it would. And then it would be a little cooler, which might be a fun alternative to room temperature punch.
The following ingredients are affiliate links on Amazon because they may be a bit hard to find in your normal store. I wanted you to be able to see exactly which things we are using.
Reminder, not all ingredients in this pumpkin punch recipe are linked above, just the ones that may be a bit difficult to find or that you might be unsure of what to look for.
Note that you won’t need a mesh strainer for this UNLESS you are going to puree your own pumpkin. If you are going to puree your own pumpkin (whoa, you’re brave!), be sure to puree puree puree and then run it through a mesh strainer to get all the biggest chunks out.
Must Have Resources:
When making Pumpkin Punch at home, you really need to have the following Amazon affiliate tools on hand.
I mean, I guess you could serve this in a pitcher (this may be a good idea if you’re not planning to serve it immediately), but a punch bowl is just so fun for kids. They think that anything that comes out of a punch bowl is a treat! LOL!
The same with the pumpkin cups and pumpkin ice cube trays. If you’re going to go big with making a pumpkin punch, you might as well go BIG.
