It’s Fall ya’ll! Anytime this time of year rolls around everyone starts putting pumpkin in everything and I love it. However, they are craaaaaaazy sugary or either too “spicy.” So I went on ever trusty Pinterest and found a winner that inspired me to make my own pumpkin spice latte and was way healthier. The blog I found this on is from Dr Axe Food is Medicine called The No. 1 Pumpkin Spiced Latte Ingredient to Avoid This Fall. So in turn for cutting out the sugar and other additives, I get my Fall in a cup without the gross stuff.
When I decided to make this latte recipe I needed to get a milk frother because, why not? I have always loved trying new techniques for cooking and baking. Today seemed like a good enough day to get one after multiple times of wanting one. I got a $7 milk frother at Target and couldn’t wait to put it to the test at home.
When I arrived home, I got to work! This recipe is so easy and cozy, it was ready in five minutes and gone in two minutes. Reading over the recipes I made a few changes to meet the needs and things I had in the kitchen.
What You Are Going To Need:

How to Make:
- Combine the almond milk, pumpkin, dark brown sugar maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla in a small pan over medium heat until the milk is hot.
