Paleo Pumpkin Spice Latte

Paleo Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall is in full swing and we’re not above loving that infamous “basic” beverage that explodes EVERYWHERE this time of year: the sweet and spiced PSL (aka: Pumpkin Spice Latte).

Since the Starbuck’s version, that must be credited for bringing this drink such fame, is sooo full of sugar and other mysterious-not-good-for-your-poor-body ingredients we decided to take matters into our own hands and make a version with real ingredients that’s also WAY LESS sugar and even Paleo-friendly!!

(Makes 3 to 4 servings pending on mug size 😉 and it’s maybe a little too easy to consume all on your own if you’re not careful)

If you’re feeling especially wild, trying making our Paleo Coconut Whipped Cream for a topping – you can find that recipe HERE.

Instructions
  1. Heat cashew (or almond) milk in a small sauce pan over medium low heat. Be careful not to boil the milk, and once it's become hot, remove it from heat.
  2. Add all ingredients, including heated milk, to a blender. Blend for several seconds or until fully combined. A bit of froth should've formed after the mixture settles.
  3. Give it a quick taste test and adjust accordingly if you wish!
Recipe Notes

Add more spices if you fancy // if you want it creamier, then add a smidge more butter and/or coconut oil // and if you want it as sweet as Starbucks, instead of adding more honey or syrup, use Stevia to sweeten it to taste! A bit more maple syrup will do the trick too, BUT, it'll lessen its qualifiers as "Paleo" LOL - enjoy hot and with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top!
