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!!
