The Pumpkin Spice Latte that is Indulgent and Health Building

by Joyce Montejo

 

Fall is fast approaching and everywhere you go there are comfort drinks filled with everything we shouldn’t consume. I’ll admit, I fell prey to the temptation yesterday when we were out and about. Instead of feeling guilty, I came home and set out to make my own. Here’s what I came up with and it was super yummy! I felt like I had really indulged, but not only did I avoid the sugar and milk, I added some great benefits to my drink.

Pumpkin has always been one of my favorite things to sneak into stuff. It’s easy to add a cup to soup, because it stirs right in without adding a lot of flavor, but adding some veggie nutrients at the same time.

I included two variations of the recipe, because everyone won’t have CinnaMate, but when you see the benefits, you’ll want to get some! It is an extremely powerful herbal combination designed to provide increased energy and focus through natural stimulation, enhanced digestion, and sugar management. It includes Yerba Mate, which includes 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, and many other key plant compounds. Cinnamon, which is mood enhancing, has been known to reduce blood sugar levels, and support healthy levels of cholesterol, is another key ingredient. Nopal, known to have adaptogen properties, Banaba, and Thyme are also included. you can learn more here. I love the energy it provides without the crash.

I found that when I drank it hot, the coconut milk was creamier, but the almond milk was better when it was iced. Don’t forget to top it off with some whipped cream.
