Attention all clean foodie lovers worldwide: What if I told you the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte can be made at home and without all the fluff? What if I said that there's a healthy version that is just as heart-warming, delicious and frothy? That you can enjoy this fall-favorite with HALF the amount of calories, fat and sugar?! I know! Hold your crazy.
This Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe comes together in 10 minutes using 6 simple ingredients, most of which you probably have at home. No artificial flavors hiding in pumpkin syrup here! It is...
Don't worry, you won't need a fancy espresso machine nor electric milk frother, either. All the major equipment you need is:
Blender* (see Suggestions below if you don't own a blender)
So save some money this season. From my kitchen to yours. I hope you enjoy this naturally-sweetened, dairy-free, Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte. Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte Serves: 1 Time: 10 minutes Ingredients:
1/2 cup Organic Coffee
2 tbsps Pureed Pumpkin
1.5 tbsps Maple Syrup
1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Brew your coffee and set aside. Feel free to do so in your favorite witches hat!
In a saucepan over medium heat, stir the pumpkin, maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice until combined. Slowly whisk in your favorite nut milk. I love the naturally sweet and creamy texture of oat milk, but almond will work just as well here. Bring mixture to a low simmer, stirring occasionally and remove from heat. Stir in vanilla extract.
Transfer milk mixture to a blender and pulse several times until foamy and frothy. (You can also use a hand-held immersion blender instead.)
Add milk mixture to your hot coffee. You may want to use a spoon to gently hold back the frothy top layer while pouring. Top your latte with this remaining froth.
Top with a dollop of homemade organic whipped cream or coconut whipped cream (optional) and sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice. Enjoy!
Suggestions: No Almond Milk - Use coconut milk or my go-to barista blend of oat milk instead No Blender - Whisk vigorously by hand when the milk mixture starts to simmer on the stove. FYI, this won't create the same froth as a blender or immersion blender but still tasty! Pumpkin Lover - Add an extra 1 tbsp of pureed pumpkin per serving Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice - Mix 1/4 cup ground cinnamon, 4 tsp ground nutmeg, 4 tsp ground ginger and 1 tbsp ground allspice. Store in an air-tight container. Make it Decaf - Replace coffee with additional almond milk
