Your favorite fall drink just got a makeover.

Sure, you can carve a pumpkin, paint a pumpkin or even go crazy decorating one, but our favorite way to celebrate the season is with a warm Pumpkin Spice Latte in our hands, Now that it’s finally cool enough here in Florida to pull out our sweaters or enjoy a hot drink, we’re excited to share this healthier version with you.

Making quality coffee at home saves so much money, not to mention calories. Because most coffee shops tend to sweeten their lattes with an array of processed syrups (and WAYYY too much of them, which contain lord knows what) this Pumpkin Spice Latte is a no-brainer if you prefer real food ingredients. Besides, it’s fun making things from scratch in your own kitchen, especially when it’s this easy!

Our Favorite Non-Dairy Milk

While non-dairy milk sounds like a healthy alternative, many are highly processed or contain an array of added ingredients, Be sure to check the ingredients listed, Look for dairy substitutes with basic ingredients such as water, nuts (such as almonds) or sea salt, Disappointingly, almost none of the manufacturers we found listed the percentage of nuts used.

Elmhurst is one of the ONLY non-dairy milk brands we’ve been able to find without an array of ingredients added, Believe us, we searched high and low!

Homemade Whipped Cream recipe

Always check for FfL-friendly ingredients.

We recommend organic ingredients when feasible

Substitutions and modifications:

Substitute milk with a plant- or nut-based milk if you like and also add a tad more honey to your taste. We’ve tried it with cow’s milk as well as Elmhurst Unsweetened Almond Milk (our favorite non-dairy milk) and it turned out wonderful!

Substitute maple syrup with honey. This doesn’t alter consistency but slightly alters the flavor.

Feel free to double the amount of pumpkin pie spice for extra “fall” flavor.
