Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

If you are an avid reader of BMI’s blog then you already know that a famous Starbucks’ Grande (medium) pumpkin spiced latte has a whopping 380 calories and 49g sugar. I’m sure this must have been quite a shocking and disappointing post for those of you (like me!) who look forward to the comforting sensation you feel from a warm latte on a crisp fall day.

Here is a homemade alternative that will not only save you the calories but also cash.

 Ingredients (1 serving)

  • 8 ounces (1 cup) brewed coffee
  • ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (can also use cow’s milk or vanilla soy milk)
  • 3 Tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tsp sweetener of choice (I use splenda)
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

Steps

  1. In a cup or sauce pan, mix together almond milk and pumpkin. Cook on medium heat on the stove top or microwave for 30-45 seconds.
  2. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, spices and sweetener, place in a cup and use a frother to foam the milk. If you don’t have a frother you can also use a blender - just process for 30 seconds or until foamy.
  3. Pour coffee into a large mug, add the foamy milk mixture on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Enjoy!
