Plant-Based Pumpkin Spice Latte
½ cup strong brewed coffee (or 1 shot espresso + 6 tbsp hot water)
¾ cup soy or almond milk
3 tbsp canned pumpkin puree
2-3 tsp maple syrup
¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice
Steam the milk. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes. Pour into a mug and sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice over top. Enjoy!
This bad boy comes in at a fraction of the cost and calories of your conventional store bought PSL and extremely quick and easy to put together.
Give it a shot, let me know what you think.
