Why not kick off the holiday cooking preparations with a nutrient rich Pumpkin Pie Latte? Its warm, filling, decadent, and with a couple scoops of collagen powder it will help your digestive health be ready for the festive meal of which you are about to partake!
1cupBoxed Unsweetened Coconut or Almond Milk (or 2 cups if you are omitting the canned milk above)
2tbspAlternative Sweetener like Monkfruit, Stevia or Swerve
1/2tspPumpkin Pie Spice
1cupHot Brewed Easy Espresso
1/2tspPumpkin Pie Spice and Ground Nutmeg (garnish)
Small Dash of Pink Himalayan Salt (trust me, you’ll thank me)
Optional: 1-2 scoops vanilla protein powder for an amplified ‘PIE’ flavor/texture
Combine all ingredients into electric kettle, whisk, and heat.
Add a dash of pumpkin spice or nutmeg over the top for a little color.
If you don’t have an electric kettle or just prefer using the stove top, you can combine all ingredients into a small pot, whisk, and heat to just below boiling.
Coconut Milk: I used Trader Joe’s reduced fat coconut milk to make it a bit more creamy than if I was to use 100% of the ‘45 cal per cup’ version in the carton. I also didn’t want it to be so incredibly heavy so I didn’t use full fat coconut milk. But these are variations you can play with depending on your health goals.
