Happy Thirsty Thursday Juicers!
Let’s welcome Autumn and Pumpkins! I love pumpkin EVERYTHING: pie, soup, seeds, juice, smoothies and milkshakes. I especially LOVE sipping on a hot Pumpkin Spice Latte on a chilly day. What I love most is not having to leave my comfy house on a cool day to purchase a Pumpkin Spice Latte, I can just make it at home. Awesome, right? And now you can too from the comfort of your own home. I am thrilled to share this skinny recipe with you.
Start by brewing your favorite coffee. I used Folgers Classic Roast Medium.
In a microwave safe measuring cup or glass add 1/2 cup soy milk
1 tablespoon of Pumpkin Spice Puree
1 teaspoon packed Light Brown Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice. (I don’t have a 1/4 measuring stick so I used a 1/2 stick, that’s why it’s halfway full)
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
Whisk all the ingredients together. Place in microwave for 1 to 2 minutes.
Make sure to keep an eye or two on it so it doesn’t overflow and spill… like my first batch. I was saying farewell to my husband who was off to work, when I took a peek in the microwave I was bummed to see my Pumpkin Milk all over the glass. Bummer! On a good note, it make my house smell so yummy, like Pumpkin!!
Pour the Pumpkin Milk into your favorite mug or a transparent glass if you’d like to see the beautiful mixture.
Add the brewed Coffee.
2 tablespoons Fat Free Organic Half and Half
2 teaspoons of sugar, stir and taste, if desired add more.
Optional… okay who are we kidding, not really optional add fat-free whipping cream on top and sprinkle on nutmeg. Oh so yummy!
Serve and enjoy this delicious and very festive Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte.
I lightened up this recipe by using soy milk, light and fat-free ingredients. If you would like more of a rich taste use whole milk, regular half and half, and regular whipped cream.
Which ever way you decide to make your Pumpkin Spice Latte, I am sure it will be deliciously tasty.
This is my favorite hot fall drink, what’s your favorite?
Hope you have a blessed and Pumpkiny day!
