Throughout the year, my coffee of choice is a vanilla latte. I love the sweet, mild taste of the frothy milk coffee. But, when fall hits it’s time to spice it up and I officially switch to a good ‘ol PSL: pumpkin spice latte.
It’s not always convenient to go out for my pumpkin spice latte so I’ve come up with a recipe that hits the spot. And, this one’s paleo, my friends. Indeed, a paleo pumpkin spice latte!
It’s a great fall treat you can easily make at home.
Start with some fresh brewed coffee of your choice.
Next add almond milk, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice in a sauce pan.
Over medium heat, heat mixture and stir to combine. Heat until pumpkin is “cooked through.” This is a few minutes. Then add honey, vanilla, and salt. Whisk until incorporated.
Using an immersion blender, mix milk until frothy. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can pour the mixture in a regular blender and blend until frothy.
Pour coffee into mugs and top with pumpkin mixture.
Add coconut whipped cream if you desire and some cinnamon.
This paleo pumpkin spice latte really so easy to make. If you keep the ingredients in your pantry you should be able to whip up this paleo pumpkin spice latte any time this season!

2. Be careful while blending the hot pumpkin creamer. Use a thick towel to cover the top of the blender to let the steam escape.
3. The blended pumpkin coffee creamer can be kept in the fridge for later use. Just heat it in the microwave for few seconds and blend it with coffee.
