What’s Actually in Your Pumpkin Spice latte how can you clean it up at home?
(check out my recipe below) 👇🏼
Believe it or not, what you think of as “pumpkin spice” can actually be a mix of more than 340 flavor compounds, according to the Institute of Food Technologists. Many of those are artificial, meaning that they’re made from synthetic chemicals. But even if they say “natural” on the ingredients list, you probably won’t find any of them in your own kitchen.
There’s more, since pumpkin spice-flavored treats don’t just contain questionable flavors and colors. Like other processed foods, they tend to be packed with excessive amounts of sugar and not much nutrition!!... I know it's the season (trust me I get it 😳🎃❤️) but drink in moderation or make your own!!
For a clean PSL I'll be sharing in my upcoming online accountability group try this out:
🎃1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
🎃3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
🎃1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
🎃1/2 teaspoon vanilla
🎃2-3 drops of liquid stevia (or sweetener of choice)
🎃8 ounces brewed coffee (or 1-2 shots of espresso)
🎃Sprinkle of cinnamon
In a cup or saucepan, mix together almond milk and pumpkin. Cook on medium heat on the stovetop or microwave for 30-45 seconds.
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, spices, and sweetener, place in a cup and use a frother to foam the milk. You can also use a blender — just process for 30 seconds or until foamy.
Pour coffee into a large mug; add the foamy milk mixture on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
