Skinny Pumpkin Latte

by Destini on October 2, 2012

A few weeks ago I was in the USA doing some shopping (This girl loves LOVES Target), the weather was warm, but October was coming and us foodies know what that means ….. PUMPKIN!! I may or may not have bought pumpkin everything. And this makes me extremely excited. One of the things I did get was a Sugar Free Archer Farms Spiced Pumpkin Coffee Syrup. I also got pumpkin spiced coffee, but I didn’t use if for t his recipe below. Every fall I look forward to Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte. The thought that I may be able to attempt to do this at home was beyond exciting…however I don’t have a frother. With a little help from YouTube, I managed to get my latte.

In a mug add the spiced pumpkin coffee syrup, Pour freshly brewed espresso and stevia, stir contents, carefully add the agitated almond milk to your coffee, top with the foam. Finish off with a sprinkle of pumpkin spice. Enjoy 🙂

Love this stuff! It is seasonal and they also have a non sugar free option as well.

I am off to Bluefish for sushi tonight! Mmmmmm sushi. I am in the process of writing my running follow up to share with you all. I have an unexpected conclusion from all of this that I must share!

Night 🙂

What is your favorite part about fall? Mine is clearly all the PUMPKIN

Also, a new fun contest that I recently shared on my page. Eat Clean Carbs Contest! I love the Eat Clean books. And jumped right into this contest!!
