oh hey fall! I’m ready to become all sorts of basic. My basic-ness includes pumpkin spice lattes , cozy boots, family picture tossing leaves, flannels and pumpkin spice lattes. My budget does not include a pretty pumpkin latte. My jeans would also not fit if I was drinking one every morning. So I decided to put my taste testing to work and a DIY version…its so easy! Even I can manage to make it before work while getting two toddlers ready for school!
So lets do a quick breakdown on the MAJOR benefits of making your pretty pumpkin spice latte at home!
Theirs : $ 5.00
Mine : $ .45
Ladies, lets just say that you only treat yourself 3 time a week for 3 months – $163! Girl, I can put together an entire outfit for that…including some cute booties!
Calories : 380 – still 310 if you skip the whip cream
Carbs : 50 – this is def not fitting into your keto diet!
Sugar : 48
Calories : 25
Carbs : 0
Sugar : 0
You also get to gain another 15 min in the morning by not stopping at Starbucks (Starbucks I swear I really do love you)
The few items you will need…
the best coffee mug ever – keeps coffee hot and never leaks!
3/4 cup almond milk ( I use the unsweetened vanilla – 30 cal per serving- if you love milk then switch to that)
coffee – duh
2 tablespoons of Jordans Skinny Syrup – pumpkin caramel
a dash of pumpkin spice
The syrup you use is up to you – I have the pumpkin, pumpkin spice and the pumpkin caramel. I went with the pumpkin caramel and add a dash of pumpkin spice. These are all zero calorie and zero sugar! Side note if you are a pumpkin fanatic and ready to go all in there is a trio pack of pumpkin flavors! Salted Caramel is also sooooo good!
So many of you have sent messages that you grabbed the pump for your Skinny Syrups so you are really taking your latte making up a notch!
So when I made this for the blog I was adding canned pumpkin….then I ran out and started making it without (just as good)
Making the PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE is so simple!
Add 2 tablespoons of your Skinny Syrup and a dash of pumpkin spice to 3/4 cup of almond milk
Zap your milk for 15 seconds and start to froth – just like using a blender
Make your coffee then add the frothed milk in!
add a dash of pumpkin spice
( If you do want the pumpkin puree add it to the coffee and mix before adding the milk)
Its a simple as that ladies, I hope you love it!
