Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. instant espresso powder (or 2 pkts Starbucks Instant Via Coffee)
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ c. pumpkin puree
  • ¼ c. sugar free maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar
  • 2 c. vanilla almond milk or skim milk
  • 3-5 packets of Stevia (or sweetener to taste)
  • Optional: 2 tbsp. half and half (to make it even more rich and creamy) and/or fat free whipped topping for garnish
  • 1 or 2 shots of espresso or 1 cup very strong coffee.

Directions:

*The estimated total time to make this recipe is 5-10 minutes.*

1.) Add all of the ingredients to a small sauce pan, stir to combine everything, and heat over medium heat, for about 1-3 minutes, or until very hot, (but be careful not to bring to a boil.)

2.) Remove from heat and add to a blender to get milk nice and frothy!  Blend on high until the milk begins to form small bubbles, about 1-2 minutes.

3.) Divide the mixture between two mugs (or save half for later in the fridge). Add a splash of half and half if desired, and/or a squirt of whipped cream, a drizzle of sugar free caramel, and a dash of cinnamon on top! Enjoy!
