Pumpkin Spice Latte

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)
  • Cinnamon
  • Cloves
  • 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.

    • 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!!

Tell me what you think!
