MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day: This dairy-free pumpkin spice latte is naturally-sweetened and vegan, for a healthy alternative to Starbucks. It’s ready in just minutes!

Ingredients for Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte:

    • 1 cup homemade almond milk
    • 1 cup hot brewed coffee
    • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
    • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
    • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Ingredients for Homemade Almond Milk:

    • 1 cup almonds, soaked in water for 4-6 hours and rinsed well
    • 4 cups filtered water
    • nut milk bag, or cheese cloth for straining

Instructions for Homemade Almond Milk:

    1. Combine the drained almonds and 4 cups of filtered water in a high-speed blender.
    2. Blend until smooth and creamy.
    • Note: Soaking the almonds beforehand removes the enzyme inhibitors naturally contained in their skins. These enzyme inhibitors may cause digestive discomfort if consumed, which is why I recommend soaking the almonds first, then draining and rinsing well. You don’t want to use the soaking water in this recipe, as it will contain those toxins you just removed!

Instructions for Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte:

    1. Combine all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender, and blend until smooth and creamy. (Or you can simply whisk the ingredients together in a pan over medium heat on the stove– use a whisk to combine well!)
    2. Adjust flavor to taste, and serve warm. A high-speed blender should keep the contents hot enough to serve immediately, but if you’re using a traditional blender, you may want to transfer the contents to a saucepan and warm over the stove top before serving.
