Better than a PSL - Pumpkin Spice Latte

Uncategorized Oct 11, 2019

EVERY FALL I COME UP WITH A NEW “SIGNATURE” COFFEE RECIPE. I JUST CAN’T RESIT THE CALLING TO MAKE COZY, COMFORTING AND DELICIOUS COFFEE DRINKS.

This fall was no different.

After Learning A New Term “VSCO Girl” And How She Wears Oversized T-Shirts With Nike Shorts… Carries A Hydro Flask And Drinks Pumpkin Spice Lattes… I Learned 2 Things.

ONE, I and NOT a VSCO Girl (phew!)

TWO, I am #beyondVSCO because I’m a hard-core Millennial who likes local, organic food and to recreate classics as a “healthy” alternative. Whatevs.

Regardless, I wasn’t alone. Daniela and I set out to make this delicious drink as a paleo/keto friendly beverage. She used her past knowledge as a barista to help me.

Instead of adding a bunch of ingredients to the blender, we decided to make a paste… a Pumpkin Butter.

This means you can batch the recipe and keep it in your fridge. That way, even if you are rushing out the door, you can still add this paste to your coffee and give it a quick blend for PSL on the go. #goals

Are you ready?? I added individual spices here, but if you have a Pumpkin Spice blend in your pantry, you can replace all of these with 1 Tlb of that.
