In your crockpot, combine the milk and coffee. Whip together the puree, vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon. Pour mixture into the crockpot. Stir everything together and then toss in 3-4 cinnamon sticks. Cover the crockpot and cook on high for 2 hours. (Serves 13 one cup servings)

can halve the recipe if you don’t have a large crowd as it doesn’t do well as leftovers.
Make sure to use pure vanilla not imitation vanilla extract (and yes you need 1/4 c.)
Can use non-dairy milk but it won’t be as creamy
Not recommended to make ahead of time
Not suitable for leftovers (people who have made before say pumpkin tastes weird if reheated)

“What is the difference between pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling?
=======Most wonder why a recipe calls for pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie filling and often wonder if the pie filling and puree are the same thing? Answer: they are not the same thing. Pumpkin puree is just plain pumpkin with no spices, sugar, etc. Pumpkin pie filling is is flavored with spices like cinnamon, clove, allspice, and ginger and is also sweetened. So in other words, if a recipe calls for pumpkin puree, most of the time you will have to add your sugar and spices to it. If a recipe calls for pumpkin pie filling, the recipe already has the sugar and spices in the filling and probably won’t call for so many ingredients. You may not be able to substitute pie filling for the puree each time though.
=======100% pumpkin can be labeled as pure pumpkin, pumpkin puree and solid pack pumpkin.
