This healthy Pumpkin Spice Coffee Recipe is dairy free, low sugar, and tastes great. You can make Pumpkin Spice coffee in 5 minutes and it’s a lot cheaper and healthier than the PSL’s at Starbucks.

It feels like fall has been slapping me in the face everywhere I go lately.

First it was the gigantic fall display and at Target.

Then the pumpkin candles I found at Homegoods.

Then the news announced that Starbuck’s is welcoming back its signature Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Now it feels like pumpkin spice is everywhere.

But even when Starbuck’s signature drink is available you may want to think twice about getting a cup…

PSL’s you can get from a drive through are full of artificial, unhealthy ingredients and chemically created pumpkin flavor.

Here’s a highlight reel of side effects from the icky ingredients in the Starbucks version via Food Babe… and no the other options out there aren’t any better.

Not only is the SPL toxic…  it’s full of sugar!

This is a screenshot of nutrition facts straight from Starbuck’s website.

There are approx. 50 grams of sugar in a grande!

And that’s with skim milk and no whip cream…

Even though I LOVE pumpkin flavor, a pumpkin spice latte is not something I’d ever order.

Between the carcinogenic chemicals and sugar, it’s not something I’d to put in my body.

But when I kept seeing and hearing ‘Pumpkin Spice’ I really wanted one… but I know better.

So I wanted to see if I could make a pumpkin spice latte that’s actually healthy.   And I did.  : )

Each serving of my Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe has approx. 50 calories, costs less than a dollar to make, and it tastes amazing!  It’s so good I had to share it with you!

 

Pumpkin Spice Coffee

 

Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte / Coffee Recipe

 

*organic ingredients recommended*

  • 1 cup almond milk (or any other nut milk dairy alternative)
  • 2 tsp. liquid stevia or 1 tbsp. powdered stevia (personally, I think liquid tastes better)
  • 1 tbsp. pumpkin puree (opt for organic)
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup freshly brewed espresso or 1 cup freshly brewed coffee (make sure you’re using quality coffee)

 

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Coffee

 

  • While your espresso or coffee is brewing, in a small saucepan combine the remaining ingredients and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.
  • The longer you simmer it, the stronger the pumpkin spice flavor will be.
  • When you’re ready, pour in your coffee (or espresso) then whisk for a minute or two until foamy.
  • This makes 1 serving.
  • Enjoy it hot or let cool and pour it over ice.

 

OMGawd this is Good

 

 

It takes about 5 minutes to make and each serving only has approx. 50 calories!

I always make mine iced with coffee because espresso makes me too jittery…
