Healthy Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

September 13, 2018

Pumpkin is one of our favorite gourds! Not only does it remind us that Fall and Halloween are just around the corner, but it’s also a nutrient-dense food that’s rich in vitamins, fibers, antioxidants, and minerals.

And everyone loves Pumpkin Spice Lattes—including us. Is there anything as delicious as the notes of pumpkin mixed with nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and turmeric? But the average Pumpkin Spice Latte we get at our usual coffee shops are devoid of any of pumpkin's nutrients and instead, are loaded with added sugar, sodium and calories. A medium-sized latte with 2% milk and whipped cream can contain up to 240mg of sodium, 50g of sugar, topping it at 380 calories.

To take advantage of the health benefits of pumpkin while enjoying Pumpkin Spice Latte, we make it right at home. This way we not only feed our taste buds, but we also feed our body and soul with nutrients we need, including beta-carotene, potassium, Vitamin A and Vitamin E.

Try this simple recipe, and you’ll never go back to regular ol’ PSL:

Ingredients

1/2 a cup of unsweetened almond, coconut or oat milk
3 tablespoons of pumpkin puree – make sure the pumpkin puree does not have any added sugar or syrup. You can make your own pumpkin puree at home by boiling pumpkin and pureeing it.
One stick of cinnamon
Ground nutmeg
2-3 pieces of clove
1/2 teaspoon of natural, organic vanilla
A pinch of ground turmeric
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Optional: 1-2 shots of espresso or 8 ounces of brewed coffee

Directions

Mix the spices into the non-dairy milk alternative in a saucepan. Let it boil and turn the heat down to a slow simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Mix the spiced milk into pureed pumpkin
Optional: add in brewed coffee or espresso
Sprinkle cinnamon on top and enjoy
