Autumn is the time of year where pumpkins are aplenty. They say if Fall had a flavor, it would be pumpkin spice. I couldn’t agree more. I love the aroma of pumpkin pies baking and enjoy adding pumpkin to various recipes including drinks. Combine pumpkin and fall spices with freshly brewed coffee and you’ve got a delicious and irresistible combination. A popular drink during the autumn is the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes are really popular when the frosty temperatures arrive and everyone loves, loves, loves them. They’re also calorically rich, high in sugar and costly. With a few simple ingredients, you can them at home and choose healthier ingredients.
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons cooked organic pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ cup organic brewed coffee or espresso
- cinnamon sticks (optional)
♥ Heat the coconut milk in a small pot or tea kettle.
♥ Add the milk and remaining ingredients to a blender, blending until well-combined.
♥ Pour into a mug and sprinkle extra pumpkin pie spice, if desired for extra flavor
♥ Serve with a cinnamon stick and enjoy!
Snuggle up with a warm blanket, a flickering fire, a good book and a hearty mug of Pumpkin Spice Latte and you’ll have the perfect evening planned!
