Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is the hit of the season right now, but unfortunately it is full of sugar and doesn’t even have real pumpkin in it but a pumpkin sauce that is full of high fructose corn syrup! Yikes!
Below is my version of a healthy pumpkin sauce that can be used to make a healthy pumpkin spiced latte in your own home. It also works great other recipes where you are trying to add pumpkin flavor.
1 can Pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
2 cups Almond Milk
1/2 cup So Delicious french vanilla coconut creamer
1/2 cup Coconut Nectar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Cloves
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Yield: 4 cups.
For the latte:
Warm 1/2 cup of the pumpkin sauce for 30 seconds in microwave or in a pan on the stove top then add it to your coffee mug. Add 1/2 cup brewed coffee of choice to mug and stir well. Add additional creamer and sweetener of choice if desired.
