Healthy & Delicious Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Pure Via®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #PureViaSweet

I've been working for weeks and weeks and WEEKS on my recipe for a Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte that is healthy and delicious.  After many attempts, I've GOT it!!  I'm so excited to share my recipe with those of you who have also been searching for an alternative to the unhealthy coffee shop Pumpkin Spice Latte that doesn't even contain any actual pumpkin. 

My recipe is simple, healthy, contains organic pumpkin, non-hormone treated milk, and non-GMO zero calorie Pure Via Stevia to sweeten it.  

First, I brewed a pot of coffee.  Mine happens to be Pumpkin Spice coffee because that's all I'm drinking these days, but you could use regular coffee as well.  Then I mixed together:

1 tablespoon organic pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 packet Pure Via Stevia 
2 tablespoons non-hormone treated milk (more or less depending on how creamy you like your coffee)

Stir those 4 ingredients well in a small bowl, then microwave for 30 seconds.  

Pour the pumpkin mixture into your coffee mug and slowly stir in your freshly brewed coffee.  Garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice if desired. 

That's it!  It is so easy, plus delicious and healthy... such a great and affordable alternative when compared to the big-time coffee shop where the Pumpkin Spice Latte doesn't actually contain any pumpkin.  I've tried MANY at home versions of my favorite drink because I've been on a quest for a healthier, homemade version for awhile now so I was seriously SO excited when I came up with this version recently.  

Some homemade versions are pretty chunky... I know, right?!  I do NOT want to chew my coffee.  By mixing and microwaving the pumpkin puree with Pure Via Stevia, the milk, and the pumpkin pie spice before adding the coffee it makes this the least chunky version of a homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte out there.

The addition of Pure Via Stevia really made this recipe awesome because I don't like to "drink my calories" so Pure Via Stevia is a great way to sweeten up my recipes without adding additional calories.  It tastes great and is a healthy alternative for people looking for healthy options.  Pure Via Stevia is an all-natural product, derived from the stevia plant.  This non-GMO product that can be found at Walmart and here's a coupon for you to use to Save $.55 on ONE (1) Pure Via® Non-GMO, All Natural, Zero Calorie 40 Ct.
