Modified Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

09 Oct 2017 7:00 AM | Anonymous

What is better on a cool fall morning (or in today's case, this snowy fall morning) than the aroma of a hot pumpkin spice latte with real pumpkin puree? In my opinion, nothing really. 

We are excited to announce that we will be sharing a recipe from time-to-time and modifying it to be just a tad bit healthier. With all the added sugars, and unknowns in our food and beverages these days, it's totally worth it to spend the extra time whipping up your favorite food or treat, so you know what you are actually eating. This morning we kick off the week with this delicious pumpkin spice latte. 

What are your some modifications you've made to some of your favorite foods? An alternative to a sugar or fat product? Lower amounts of something? Share with us your favorites in the comments below!


1/2c whole milk (a little more, as some will steam off)

1/2c strong coffee or shot of Espresso 

2 tbsps pumpkin puree

1 tbsp maple syrup

.5 tsp cinnamon (and  a sprinkle for the top)


Bring milk to a rolling simmer for a few minutes, add pumpkin puree and simmer for another two minutes, stir in maple syrup, pour coffee or espresso to a coffee mug, add milk mixture and cinnamon to mug and serve.

Serving size is 8 oz.
