Low-Carb Hot Pumpkin-Spice Latte

By on November 2, 2013

I won’t deny it, I love Starbucks coffee.  In fact, my wife Shari is addicted to it, or so I believe.

pumpkin spice latteThe problem is, outside of straight coffee, their drinks are unbelievably unhealthy-49 grams (that’s about 10 teaspoons) of insulin-spiking, pro-inflammatory sugar per 16-oz pumpkin-spiced latte.  I can only imagine how I’d bounce off the wall for the couple hours after having one, only to crash (hard) shortly after.

What if there was a way to do the same thing, with all-natural ingredients, and about 2 net carbs?

With all the left-over ingrediets from your pumpkin-carving expeditions, it’s the perfect way to use that puree you aren’t using in the pie.

Here’s the quickest/easiest way I found to do it:

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 12-oz. coffee
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spices
  • 2 teaspoons truvia
  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut milk
  • 2 cinnamon sticks (optional)

To make it is so simple-here it is!

  • mix everything together in a blender
  • mour into coffee cups
  • garnish with cinnamon sticks
  • enjoy your low-carb lifestyle :)

    I plan to try this…sounds really good! Will canned pumpkin (not pie filling) work?

      Yes, you can use it just as readily. However, I haven’t yet found a way to get rid of that ‘tinny’ taste from many of the canned pumpkin products. If you find a way to do it, please let me know :)
