Pumpkin Spice Latte

This pumpkin spice latte has half the calories of your favorite fall treat… but more importantly can almost be considered a health food 🙂

Total Time: 10 min.
Prep Time: 5 min.
Cooking Time: 5 min.
Yield: 1 serving

1 cup nonfat milk or unsweetened almond milk
1 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 drops liquid stevia (or a dash of whatever you choose to sweeten with)
1 cup brewed black coffee or 1 shot espresso
1 dash ground nutmeg or cinnamon (to taste; optional)

1. Heat milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and extract in medium saucepan over medium heat; cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until mixture is hot, but not boiling. It is ready when there are many small bubbles on the sides of the saucepan.
2. Remove from heat; mix vigorously with a whisk until frothy.
3. Pour coffee or espresso into serving mug; top with milk mixture.
4. Top with nutmeg or cinnamon if desired.

A quicker version is to whisk the pumpkin puree in with the milk, place in the microwave for one minute, froth then add coffee. Works in a pinch!

Have you seen some of the details on what is IN and isn’t in the Starbucks Pumpkin Latte? Maybe I will set up shop 🙂

If you think this is great – you should try a seasonal Pumpkin Spice Shakeology… but it is only available for a short time in the fall!
