Pumpkin Spice Latte
Embrace the season with a soothing plant-based latte, loaded with healthy fats and antioxidants.
- 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice plus extra for garnishing
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk, warmed
- 2 teaspoon almond butter
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons maca powder
- 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk, chilled
- *Optional: 2 espresso shots
Transfer the chilled coconut milk into a bowl, remove any liquid, and use a hand mixer to obtain a cream.
Add the pumpkin, espresso (if using), pumpkin spice, almond milk, almond butter, maple syrup, and maca into the blender and process to obtain a smooth, creamy liquid.
Divide into serving cups or glasses, top with coconut milk whipped cream, sprinkle with pumpkin spice, and serve warm.
Not only does pumpkin brighten dull skin, it also fades sun spots and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles. And when eaten regularly, it helps balance hormones and nourishes the intestines.
