Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte
So I know in the picture it just looks like an ordinary cup of coffee, but I assure you this warm mug of fall flavors is extraordinary. I recently had a soy pumpkin spice latte from Peet’s and I was overwhelmed by how sweet it was! I realized part of the problem was that they use sweetened soy milk on top of the already over sweet sugar syrup. So this morning I set out to create my own, without an espresso machine, without all the sugar, and without the dairy. I must say, the results were quite tasty!
- 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 tsp espresso powder
- 1 Tbs agave nectar
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 heaping tsp pumpkin puree
Combine agave nectar, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice in a small microwaveable bowl, microwave for 15 seconds and stir until pumpkin is evenly combined. Add in espresso powder and stir. Warm the almond milk and stir in the pumpkin agave syrup. Add coffee. Stir. Enjoy.
Easier, cheaper, tastier, and healthier than the Starbucks version! Its a win-win.
