We all love anything autumnal and cozy, one of those things being a PSL from Starbucks! However paying three to six dollars for a drink with obscene amounts of calories can get a little ridiculous over the fall season. We have tried and tested to perfect a homemade and healthy alternative to this beloved drink. Let us know what you think and what your favorite food and drink alternatives are!
1-2 shots (¼ cup) espresso OR ¾ cup spice tea or chai tea
2 cups your milk preference
2 tablespoons organic canned pumpkin puree
½-1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
½-1 tsp raw honey OR 2 tablespoons sugar (we prefer the honey for its taste and health benefits!)
¼-2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (to your preference)
Add cinnamon to taste
Optional- whipped cream
Metal or Wooden Spoon
Espresso machine or coffee maker
1. While you brew tea or coffee (your preference), slowly heat the milk and pumpkin puree in saucepan till the mixture becomes very warm.
2. Add milk mixture, tea/coffee, pumpkin pie spice, honey or sugar, and vanilla to the blender or mixer or hand mix.
3. Continue mixing until drink is frothy top off with whipped cream and cinnamon.
