Move over Starbucks pumpkin spice latte, we have a healthier latte! This homemade pumpkin spice latte is delicious, made with real pumpkin puree and coconut sugar, a natural sugar substitute.
I used my new Keurig Elite Brewer to make this recipe*. It is super convenient and only requires one coffee pod to make two latte servings. I’ve owned a Keurig for the last 7 years and it has been one of my favorite kitchen gadgets. I was thrilled to update to this newer, quieter model with a filtration system and descaling feature. Since I only drink one cup of coffee in the morning, nothing is wasted when I can brew a single cup.
When making this pumpkin spice latte, a good bold roast coffee is best for great flavor.
Enjoy the latte with a healthy snack, like peanut butter chocolate chip protein bars.
