Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Holy moly – I am SUPER pumped by the fact that I created a replica of the infamous (& terrible for you) Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. I had my first sip, ready to pour it down the drain and have to try another version, and to my utter surprise it tasted just like the pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks!!! Except, there are NO bad ingredients in it, no cow’s milk, no gluten, and no preservatives!

But, you don’t want to miss out on the delicious-ness, do you? Of course not 🙂 Before we get into the recipe, here are a few things you should know:

Cinnamon is a great blood sugar balancer, and has been shown to lower blood sugar levels in diabetics.

Raw honey (unpasteurized) is anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory.  That’s why it works well to apply on burns on your skin, so imagine how good it is for your insides!  With cold and flu season upon us, adding a tiny bit of raw honey to your homemade lattes is a great idea to fend off the bacteria!
