Vitality Pumpkin Spice Latte


Did someone say pumpkin? I pretty much love everything pumpkin. And at this time of year, I find myself craving a creamy, hot latte every now and then. Instead of indulging in sugar laden artificially flavoured lattes, I whip up my own at home using real, natural ingredients.


I've added powdered collagen to this recipe. It's completely optional. I like it for it's creaminess and, as a bonus, it helps to promote healthy nails, skin, and joints, and plays a role in gut health. Now that's upgrading your latte!


Here's the recipe:


INGREDIENTS:

2 cups unsweetened milk of your choice (coconut milk gives a naturally sweet taste)

4 Tbsp pureed pumpkin


2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves)


2 Tbsp real maple syrup (or to taste)


1 Tbsp collagen (optional)


2 shots of espresso divided


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Warm milk in a milk steamer/frother or warm in a pot on the stove on low.

  2. Once milk is warmed, pour into a blender with the remaining ingredients (other than espresso) and blend until mixed and frothy.

  3. Divide mixture between two mugs pouring over a shot of espresso.

  4. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg and enjoy! 😋
