But did you know there is anywhere from 130 to 420 calories in your favorite fall drink? Not to mention the 30 grams of sugar? Here is a skinny version of our favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe from health coach Brittany Mullins from popsugar.com.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-3 drops of liquid stevia (or sweetener of choice)
  • 8 ounces brewed coffee (or 1-2 shots of espresso)
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, mix almond milk and pumpkin puree. Cook on medium heat on the stovetop or microwave for 30-45 seconds.
  2. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, spices, and sweetener, place in a cup and use a frother to foam the milk.
  3. Pour coffee into a large mug; add the foamy milk mixture on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Enjoy!
