Fall is in the air. And that means fabulous jackets, apples and pumpkin picking! Pumpkins are some of my absolute favorite foods because they're chock-full of awesomeness. They are full of carotenoids, which are precursors to vitamin A. Which, if you haven't heard, is key for fabulous skin. Plus, they're loaded with fiber and can even help you sleep better! So if you're headed out to the countryside this weekend and pick up a pumpkin or two you'll need to try my healthy take on the fall fave—the pumpkin spice latter.
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
3 tbs of pumpkin puree
1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
1/2 a tsp of vanilla
A dash of cinnamon
A dash of nutmeg
1/2 a cup of cold brewed coffee
Stevia to taste
Add the almond milk to a saucepan and bring to a light boil. Whisk in all the spices and then the pumpkin puree. Then whisk in the vanilla and lastly the cold brewed coffee. Allow to warm for a least a minute, and then serve. If you want to add a little extra awesomeness, finish off with a dollop of rice or soy whipped cream.
