Well, it’s somehow pumpkin season again! While it still been hitting 90 degrees here in LA County, I’ve been seeing many people get excited about pumpkin again, and especially about Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Why I Make My Own Paleo and Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte

As a pumpkin fanatic, I remember back when I didn’t really think about what I was putting in my body, I would enjoy this drink almost daily as soon as they released it. These days, I’ve done my research about the ingredients, which is why I haven’t touched the original version for several years now. If you are curious, here are the ingredients:

Milk, Pumpkin Spice Sauce [Sugar, Condensed Skim Milk, Pumpkin Puree, Contains 2% Or Less Of Fruit And Vegetable Juice For Color, Natural Flavors, Annatto, Salt, Potassium Sorbate], Brewed Espresso, Whipped Cream [Cream (Cream, Milk, Mono And Diglycerides, Carrageenan), Vanilla Syrup (Sugar, Water, Natural Flavors, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid)], Pumpkin Spice Topping [Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Clove, Sulfiting Agents]

As you can see, that’s A LOT of sugar and artificial ingredients with very little pumpkin. So in order for me to enjoy one of my favorite Fall drinks again, I decided make this much healthier version: Paleo and Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Paleo and Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

Made with REAL, organic pumpkin, there’s nothing in this pumpkin spice latte that’s questionable or fake. And, in my opinion, it tastes so much better than the Starbucks version without being loaded with sugar.

I’ve been making my lattes using my immersion blender, and it works really well in creating that foamy layer. You can use a regular, high-powered blender as well or a latte frother if you have fancy gadgets in your kitchen.

Instead of spending your hard earned dollars on the Starbuckp Pumpkin Spice Latte, make this healthier and tastier version at home instead! It only takes a few minutes to make and your wallet and your body will say thank you.

      You can easily find them at any grocery store! I think Trader Joe’s has it as well. If you can’t find it, you can just substitute with cinnamon, or make your pumpkin pie spice (a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves).

    Could you add the nutritional content of this drink please? This looks great. I’m heading out to get the ingredients now!

    I used to love PSL from Starbucks too, but also found it to be way too sweet as my tastes changed. This was really yummy!!
