Trim Healthy Mama Menu Plan: Vanilla Pumpkin Spice Latte (FP)

Easy Vanilla Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fuel Pull

2 cups vanilla (30 Calorie/Unsweetened) almond milk

4 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree

2 tablespoons Truvia

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/2 cup strong coffee or espresso

canned whipped cream or coconut homemade whipped cream
Add the milk, pumpkin, sugar, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice to a small sauce pan over medium-high heat. Bring almost to a boil.  Remove from heat and add to a blender.  Blend on high until the milk begins to froth, about 2 minutes.  Divide milk mixture between two mugs.  Add the coffee slowly down the side so you don’t disturb the milk froth, add a squirt of whipped cream and a pinch more of the pumpkin pie spice and enjoy.
Happy Fall!
This is a modified recipe from Farmgirl gourmet.
