Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Ah, fall time. Pumpkin everything is in full force at every store across America. (Full disclosure: I love everything fall-flavored.)

However, a lot of it is not good for our fitness goals.

Did you know the grande pumpkin spiced latte from Starbucks has 49 g of sugar and 380 calories?

I’m not saying they’re “bad”, because that’s a big blanket statement I rarely like to put on foods. However, there’s lot of ingredients in one from Starbucks, and not a single one of them is even pumpkin. I mean, come on.

Cut the calories and the extra BS by simply making one from home.

That’s my recipe! P.S. I’ve been sharing more recipes on Instagram, so you should follow me there.

In case you can’t see the picture, you simply brew coffee, then add:

  • 1 tsp of raw (preferably organic) pumpkin
  • Nutmeg (season to taste)
  • Cinnamon (season to taste)
  • Cream (as much as you prefer)
  • Sugar (as much as you prefer)

That’s it. You can adjust and add as much as you like depending on how strong you like certain spices or how much sugar you want.

Even if you add quite a bit of all the ingredients above, it would still be hard to come close to the sugar and calorie content in one from Starbucks.
