Teeccino Maya Chai Pumpkin Pie


Enjoy this delish holiday dessert recipe from our friends at Teeccino inspired by their Maya line of fabulous caffeine-free herbal coffees. If you want to get rave reviews about your pumpkin pie, Maya Chai is your secret ingredient. The magic is achieved by steeping Maya Chai in hot cream or Silk Non-Dairy Creamer and letting its fabulous spicy flavor infuse its aromatic richness into the cream.

The entire line of Teeccino herbal coffees (now, also available in tea bags) are a positive, healthy alternative to caffeine products that give their lift by being rich in potassium, and also have the added benefit of containing inulin, a prebiotic that keeps the digestive tract healthy and balanced. Teeccino can be found on line ( or at your local health food store.
