Homemade, protein packed pumpkin spice latte

It’s autumn, which means it’s pumpkin spice latte season! If you’d like to enjoy this seasonal treat, but without all the added syrup, try this healthier, lower sugar and protein packed version!

 

Ingredients (makes one large cup):

3/4 cup coffee

3/4 cup milk of choice (I used almond)

2 tablespoons pumpkin puree (link below)

1 scoop (or 15g) pumpkin spice protein powder (link below)

Dash of cinnamon to garnish

 

Instructions:

Make the coffee (instant or machine made, both work).

Then, get a small sauce pan and add the coffee, milk and pumpkin puree to the pan. Mix the ingredients well using a spoon.

Place the sauce pan on the stove and heat the mix up to your desired heat, stirring from time to time.

Once the mixture has heated up, take the pan off the stove. Then, add the protein powder and stir the mixture using a spoon, until there are no clumps or bits left and you have a smooth consistency.

Pour the finished protein pumpkin spice latte into one large or two smaller cups, garnish with cinnamon, and enjoy!
