Fall is my favorite season, each year I look forward to boots, hoodies, and warm drinks.
One of my favorite warm drinks is the pumpkin spice latte (I love pumpkin anything), however, I get hung up on the ingredients in their latte, not to mention what it does to my blood sugar:
I decided to try making my own at home, and it was fantastic with no blood sugar spike (it also helped me feel a bit more Fall-ish drinking out of my Yosemite mug, since it was about 85 degrees outside-boo!).
Pumpkin Spice Latte
- Pumpkin coffee of your choice
- Organic Valley milk (I prefer whole, but they were out last time)
- Stevia in the raw
Pretty simple, brew the coffee, add the ingredients to your liking, stir and enjoy! You could easily change the spices, coffee, and cream/milk you use, to tailor it to your taste preferences (heck, drop in a chai tea bag!) 🙂
My version has about 30 calories, Strabucks version has about 380.
I thought you hated pumpkin pie!
I dislike the texture of pumpkin pie, not so much the flavor!
Oh gotcha, I love everything pumpkin flavored too. This made me want a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks!
I make the same exact thing with my pumpkin keurig….but instead of milk I use a little coconut milk creamer:) Deliciousness!!!!
Yum! I have tried the coconut milk creamer a couple times, and I just can’t get into it for some reason, maybe it’s time to try again 🙂 What brand do you use? I do prefer Organic Valley (for dairy) because they pasture their cows, and typically buy their whole milk or cream, but this was all they add this time!!
