Want to enjoy a super indulgent adult beverage that combines fall flavors with a classic white russian, one of the best after-dinner drinks around? Introducing the JOI Pumpkin Spice White Russian. Creamy and flavored with the best taste of fall... pumpkin!
This Recipe is Simple and Easy to Make!
This drink (or is it a liquid dessert?!) is easy to put together. Just pour the spiked pumpkin mixture (the "base") over ice and top it with JOI milk. You'll be toasting in no time.
First things first. Putting together the pumpkin base of this drink is very simple. Chances are you have all of these staples already stocked in your pantry and liquor cabinet.
Just blend up a couple of scoops of pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, vodka, coffee liquor, and JOI plant base. The JOI gives this drink (so good you can call it dessert) an ultra creamy texture and adds to the richness of the experience.
After blending all of that together, simply pour the spiked pumpkin base over a glass filled with extra creamy JOI milk. The swirling of the two liquids creates a beautiful presentation. Add a cinnamon stick if you're feeling fancy. This is the perfect fall drink to enjoy cozied up after dinner!
This Recipe is Customizable!
Use the baseline recipe below and then go nuts and make it your own! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Make it a Virgin: Skip the spirits and make it a non-alcoholic drink instead! Just add a little more milk or coffee to replace the vodka and coffee liqueur. And try adding some maple syrup to replace the sweetness lost from removing the liqueur.
- Skip the Pumpkin: No pumpkin puree? No problem. Swap sweet potato puree or butternut squash puree instead.
- A Tropical Twist: Swap out the vodka and coffee liqueur for an equal amount of coconut rum and top with coconut whipped cream. Make your own whipped topping by blending the coconut cream from the top of a can of coconut milk with a bit of powdered sugar.
- Frozé it: Instead of pouring over ice, blend the base and milk with the ice and enjoy a frappé instead.
2 ounces vodka
2 ounces coffee liqueur
3 Tablespoons pumpkin puree
3 Tablespoons JOI plant base (cashew, almond, creamer or oat)
1½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 cup pre-prepared JOI milk (cashew milk, almond milk, creamer or oat milk) (divided)
1 - 2 Tablespoons maple syrup (optional), or substitute honey, date syrup, agave or sweetener of choice
Whipped cream, to top (optional)
- Prepare the JOI milk per package instructions, making it extra creamy.
- In a blender cup combine the vodka, coffee liquor, pumpkin puree, JOI plant base, pumpkin spice and maple syrup (if using for extra sweetness). Blend until creamy, at least 30 seconds.
- Fill 2 glasses with ice. Pour ½ cup of the JOI milk into each glass, then pour over half of the the pumpkin liqueur in each glass. Gently stir and serve with a cinnamon stick. Top with dairy-free whipped cream, if using. Enjoy!

4 Things That Set JOI Nutbase Apart from Nut Butters—And Make for a Better Nut Milk
Let’s take a look at four things that set JOI nutbases apart from nut butters—and why JOI is better to make, better to drink, and better for you.
Comparing Almond Milk: JOI Almond Nutbase Vs. Grocery Store Brands
You’ve decided to make the switch to plant milk. Whether better health is the goal, the traditional stuff doesn’t really get along with your body, or you just like the taste, it probably hasn’t taken you long to figure out you’ve got a lot more decisions ahead of you to find your plant milk. JOI is here to make that decision a bit easier for you.
The Skinny Truth About Fats
With all the “low-fat” and “fat-free” products on the market, it’s not a surprise that most people have a negative association with fats—whether it’s about gaining weight, raising cholesterol levels, increasing risk for heart disease... talk about a bad reputation. All of which is true, but only to a certain extent. The fat we eat, known as dietary fat, is one of three essential macronutrients in a diet. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are the three musketeers of nutrition and must stay together through all your meals, not one can be excluded from the dinner party... (we're looking at you, keto diet).
