Upgraded Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Tis the season for #PSL! I posted a Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe a couple of years ago, but it's time for a refresh!

This recipe has some variations: a chai decaffeinated version, or the good ol' caffeinated with espresso version. There are also some options to take your #PSL to the next level.

If you make this recipe, be sure to take me on instagram here @healthyeatingandliving.ca.

This recipe is:

  • gluten free
  • grain free
  • dairy free
  • refined sugar free (sweetened with honey)

I highly recommend making your own almond milk for this recipe because the homemade stuff tastes SO much better! To make your own:

  1. Let 1 cup almonds soak in very hot water for 5 minutes
  2. Drain and rinse and add 1 cup almonds to 3 cups water in a high speed blender
  3. Optional additions: vanilla, sea salt and cinnamon
  4. Blend for about 60 seconds
  5. Strain with a nut milk bag
