How To Make a Pumpkin Spice Latte
Say hello to the fall season with this Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe.
If you’re like me, when you head to your local coffee shop and you’re taken by the delicious aromas in the air, you’re always tempted to go with something sweet. What better way to indulge than by adding a touch of sugar to your favorite drink?
Not a bad idea – but when it becomes a routine, it can hurt the pockets.
This led us to take a shot at creating our own Servomax version. Here’s how we went about it.
Pumpkin Spice Syrup
Cinnamon: high in antioxidants, helps prevent diseases, improves gut health, reduces blood pressure, etc.
Oat Milk: Low sugar content and saturated fat content. High in fiber and protein.
Pumpkin Spice Syrup: Pumpkins are filled with vitamins and minerals.
Coffee: helps digestion and keeps you from feeling bloated after a meal.
Pumpkin Spice Latte Variations
– Zero Sugar Syrup: If you love the sweetness but you’re worried about the extra sugar, you can easily find sugar free syrups.
– Pumpkin Purée Latte: If you’re looking for a more natural taste, you can replace the syrup by pumpkin purée and add maple syrup to sweeten it.
– Try Different Beans: This recipe will taste different depending on the type of coffee beans you choose.
How To Make It
Heat up the milk mixture: In a milk frother add your oat milk with a dash of cinnamon.
Get caffeinated: In a separate container, add a serving of your favorite brewed espresso. Combine the pumpkin spice syrup to the coffee and blend together.
Serve it up: add the espresso mixture to a mug of your choice. Top with the frothed oat milk combination and decorate it with your favorite garnish (mine is whipped cream and cinnamon powder).
