Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte ☕️
Fall is such a beautiful time. The colors, the sweaters, the coziness and of course the FOOD.
Eating your favorite comfort foods does not mean you have to eat crappy chemically processed foods. I'm here to show you that if you are getting healthy, you do not have to sacrifice all the things you love. There is a simple way to upgrade the quality of your ingredients, thus upgrading the quality of your health and your life as a whole.
Healthy food doesn't have to be bland or boring. It can be vibrant, beautiful, fun and nourishing. Start taking care in what you are putting into your body.
Your homework for this week: Make this DELICIOUS latte and tag me in your post on Instagram with my handle @juliajacksonxo
By taking steps to upgrade your food choices and get excited about eating well, you will have an influence on those who love you and who knows? You might even spark a movement! (and enjoy a delicious latte while you are at it!)
Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte (Recipe Courtesy of simply real health blog)
Makes 1 serving
Notes: I love this recipe using coldbrew, earl grey or rooibos tea, or matcha as the “coffee” component with the below ingredients.
1⁄4 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey (or more or less depending on your tastes)
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup coffee or brewed black, green, or rooibos tea
1⁄2 cup coconut milk, almond milk, hemp milk or coconut water
Brew coffee or tea of your choice first. Then, in a saucepan, add pumpkin puree, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla. Warm over low heat and whisk ingredients together. Add coffee of brewed tea, then milk of your choice (or froth it separately in true latte style). Top with extra pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon or nutmeg.
Julias tip: Drink it while its hot and cozy up to drink it with people you love most in the world!
I'm a HUGE fan of adding butter to my coffee. Feel free to add a TBSP of high quality organic butter into the saucepan when you make this recipe. Its got great high quality fats that will keep you nice and full if you like to have your coffee on an empty stomach!
