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.
Paleo Pumpkin Spice Latte
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.
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.
Give it a quick taste test and adjust accordingly if you wish!
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!
