Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte

Suzy Lewis

Enjoy your favorite fall treat and nourish your body at the same time! Real pumpkin has many health benefits and is wonderful for your digestion and complexion. Use a sweetener of your choice like stevia, monk fruit, maple syrup, or coconut sugar. I like to use unsweetened coconut milk, but any plant milk will do, or dairy milk if that is part of your diet.

Ingredients:
1C unsweetened plant milk
1C brewed coffee or 1-2 shots of espresso
1 Tbsp unsweetened canned pumpkin puree
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp monk fruit or other sweetener of your choice

Instructions:

  1. Make coffee
  2. Whisk milk, spices, pumpkin, and sweetener in a small saucepan
  3. Pour milk over coffee in a mug and top with a cinnamon stick or dash of grated ginger
  4. Enjoy your budget friendly beautiful creation!
