Healthier Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice lattes seem to be in high-demand this season.


Personally, I’ve never been a fan of the famous Pumpkin Spice lattes available at big coffee chains. While I do love both coffee and pumpkin, these drinks are usually too sweet for my taste, not to mention that they are usually dairy-based and loaded with artificial flavoring.

This homemade Pumpkin Spice latte is a lighter alternative, combining a hint of pumpkin puree, homemade almond milk, fall spices and a splash pure maple syrup. It tastes like a decadent coffee drink, without the use of artificial syrups or preservatives!

If you don’t care for coffee, feel free to use extra almond milk instead, for a caffeine-free drink!

Pumpkin Spice Latte (Vegan)
makes 2 cups

Ingredients:

1 cup homemade almond milk
1 cup hot brewed coffee
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, or stevia to taste
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.

Adjust flavor to taste, and serve warm!

A high-speed blender should keep the contents hot enough to serve immediately, but if you’re using a traditional blender, you may want to transfer the contents to a saucepan and warm over the stove top before serving.
