Low Calorie Decadent Pumpkin Chai, Progressive Dinner, and GIVEAWAY!

Time for another progressive blog dinner, and the theme this time is comfort foods!
One of my very favorite things in the whole world is Chai tea. Oh my goodness, love! This time of year I love them with pumpkin spice. I usually make my heavenly drinks at home, and I have figured out a way to make a low calorie one~ ONLY 108 CALORIES to be exact~ yes, you read that right… all of that deliciousness for only 108 calories. And, even better than that it tastes like you are drinking a decadent Chai pumpkin pie. Yes, heaven. 
Here is what you need… 
1 big can of pumpkin
1 small package of sugar free vanilla pudding
Tazo liquid Chai
Milk {not pictured}
Blend together your pumpkin, pudding powder and 2 cups of milk on high until well blended. Then blend it little more. You want this WELL blended. 
To make an 8 oz. Pumpkin Chai, mix:
 1/2 cup of the pumpkin mixture {keep the rest in the fridge for later use}
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup of the liquid Tazo chai
{I prefer the Tazo brand~ regular or decaf. 
It is spicy enough to really compliment the pumpkin well}
 I use a fork to beat mine together really well… kind of like if you were beating an egg. Pop in the microwave to heat through. ( I do mine for about 1 min. 30 sec.)

I like to top mine with a little bit of whipped cream and a pinch of nutmeg {not included in the calorie count}. It tastes like dessert. Mmmmmmmm.
