It’s that time of year when all of your neighbourhood coffee shops start advertising the, always popular, pumpkin spice latte – oh and don’t forget the pumpkin muffins, cakes and donuts too.

Nutritional Value per serving: Calories 72, Fat 2g, Protein 1g, Carbs 11g, Sugar 9g
1 cup black coffee, hot & strongly brewed
2 tbsp organic pumpkin puree
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1 tbsp vanilla agave or raw honey
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk of choice)
Combine all ingredients into your blender or Vitamix. If using a Vitamix you are going to use the “Hot soup” pre-set so that it comes out nice and hot – this takes appox. 6 minutes. Make sure the lid is secured, select the hot soup pre-set and press start. Let the Vitamix run through the entire cycle. The contents will be hot and ready to serve once it’s finished. Yum!
