Perfect Pumpkin Spice Latte

This latte is not only healthy with the sneaky addition of some protein & pumpkin puree it is honestly delicious! A typical Starbucks pumpkin spiced latte of this size ( grande) can run you about 380 calories, 50 grams of sugar and 52 g of carbs…. I mean c’mon…. We still want to look cute in our fall outfits without sabotaging ourselves to get a good old fall latte! Fear not. This latte is 95 calories ( of all good calories ) and 2 grams of sugar and 4 grams of protein! Keeping you full and happy as a benefit to the delicious factor. Check out below for the recipe & happy fall babes Xx.

What You’ll Need:

  • Brewed organic coffee ( see my post HERE about why organic coffee)
  • 1 tsp pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/2-1 tsp stevia or monk fruit ( see HERE for the one I get )
  • Silk Coconut milk for coffee * unsweetened OR can use full fat coconut milk from a can – 1 -2 TBSP.
  • about 1 .5 tsps of organic vanilla brown rice protein like Vanilla Sunwarrior or THESE 
  • Sprinkle of pumpkin spice
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Good Frothing device – I swear by this Nespresso one... worth it.. worth it!

What To Do:

  1. * In to the milk frother * add in 3 tbsp of coconut milk, protein powder, sweetener & pumpkin puree
  2. Froth until  all is dissolved ( if using the Nespresso push once for the hot froth setting)
  3. Using a spoon into black coffee, first pour the milk at the bottom of the frother in … then slowly add the froth on top of the coffee ( latte effect )
  4. Sprinkle with pumpkin spice and cinnamon and a little extra sweetener if you desire
  5. Become the pumpkin spice Latte!
