PUMPKIN BUTTER LATTE
I love pumpkin spiced drinks and created this one today. This particular drink was made with Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter which has only 40 calories per tablespoon. If you really want your drink to be frothy, then almond milk is the best for that. This drink is better than most drinks you find at expensive coffeehouses.
2-4 oz of espresso (single or double shot)
1 cup of Unsweetened Non-Dairy Milk
1/8 tsp of Pumpkin Spice
1/4 tsp of Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp of Pumpkin Butter
Sweetener of choice.
a dash of cinnamon for topping
Only ~75 Calories.
Heat up the milk and pumpkin butter together on the stove top. Mix well. Add the pumpkin spice and vanilla. I used an electric hand frother to foam up the milk.
Pour espresso into a mug. Add the milk and stir well. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top.
The pumpkin butter sweetens the drink but you can use extra sweetener if you like. I used a little liquid stevia in mine. It was amazing.

PUMPKIN-SPICED EGGNOG LATTE
Only 100 Calories. This is way better than a coffeehouse and its 500 calorie drinks. I used Silk's non-dairy Original Eggnog. It only has 45 calories per 1/2 cup. I loved the taste and really couldn't tell the difference from regular eggnog. This drink allows me to indulge in a holiday treat without breaking my diet.
1 cup of Non-Dairy Eggnog
