Do you love your daily coffee?
I have a great latte recipe for you that I bet you've never tried to make at home before (it's coffee-shop worthy and way healthier).
This is one of the new meals we have included as part of our meal plan service in our consults. If you would like to book a consult with our naturopath Click here
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Recipe Print Recipe
1/2 cup Organic Coffee
2 tbsps Pureed Pumpkin
1 1/2 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.
In a saucepan over medium heat, stir the pumpkin, maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice until combined. Slowly whisk in almond milk. 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!
No Almond Milk Use coconut milk instead.
No Blender Whisk vigorously by hand when the milk mixture starts to simmer on the stove. FYI, this will not 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 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.
