Fall is upon us and I’m making everything pumpkin. Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin loaf. Since so many people often opt for the latest pumpkin spice specialty drinks at local coffee shops I wanted to make a healthier version of a pumpkin latte. Skip the calories and artificial ingredients, save your $5 and join me in making your own healthy, pumpkin latte at home. Filled with delicious healthy, wholesome ingredients this pumpkin latte will keep your fueled all morning long.
Adding in pumpkin puree along with Complete Protein Powder is an excellent way of getting fibre, beta carotene and protein into your morning coffee. Complete Protein is gluten free, dairy free, non gmo and contains 17 vegetables. Now that’s a healthy coffee!
Opting for coconut milk adds in some healthy fat and allows this drink to be dairy free, plus it takes only minutes to make at home. Forget the long lineups at Starbucks and Tim Hortons, get your spice on with this healthy homemade pumpkin latte.
Don’t care for pumpkin, add in some leftover cooked sweet potato instead, it will be simply delicious.
