September is here, which means we tend to see pumpkin spice everywhere, particularly pumpkin spiced coffee beverages. If you are craving all the delicious flavors that come with fall but are looking for a healthier way to enjoy that pumpkin spiced treat, we’re sharing three healthier ways to make a pumpkin latte.
3 Ways to Make a Healthier Pumpkin Latte
#1 Make it Dairy-Free
Try making it dairy-free by swapping out the dairy milk and using coconut, oat, macadamia, or almond. For an extra creamy latte, coconut and oat work best! You can also add a splash of pure vanilla extract for an added flavor boost.
#2 Cut Back on The Sugar
Traditional pumpkin lattes are loaded with sugar, but this doesn’t mean you can’t make your own without all that added sugar that still tastes delicious.
Instead of using refined sugar, try using just a teaspoon or two of coconut sugar, or opt for a drizzle of pure maple syrup or raw honey instead.
#3 Try Adding a Medicinal Mushroom Blend
Top it off with a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin spice for an added fall flavorful boost.
Enjoying a Healthier Pumpkin Latte is Easy & Delicious
When you make your own pumpkin latte vs. buying a store-bought version, you get to control what ingredients you add, which means that you can make it healthy while still adding all the fall flavors you look for this time of year.
