DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte Clean Eating Recipe

Fall signifies 9 months of cold for us in Seattle. Because of this, I hang on to summer as long as possible. But at some point, I need to accept that fall is on the way. This morning I decided to embrace fall and look forward to the pumpkin recipes that I can finally pull out. Which is where this DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte Clean Eating Recipe comes into play.

I’m not going to lie…I love the pumpkin spice lattes from the coffee stands. But the syrup they use to flavor the coffee contains a lot of added sugar. I’ve tried several PSL recipes and the one from InspiredTaste.net is by far the best!

With just the two modifications below, the recipe is now clean (also omit the whipped topping):

  • Substitute Almond Milk for Whole Milk
  • Substitute a mix of Honey and Maple Syrup to substitute granulated sugar

The honey adds a nice flavor but the maple syrup adds the sweetness that you’re used to. Don’t expect this to taste like the coffee stand lattes. Instead, think of it as a different, but equally delicious, drink.

So Let’s Do This!

If you are so inclined, you can make your own pumpkin puree: How to make pumpkin puree.

If you prefer to buy pumpkin puree, do your best to find 100 percent pureed pumpkin for this recipe. I buy it from Thrive Market, but you may be able to find it in your local grocery store as well. This is my favorite brand:

The rest of the ingredients are probably ones you already have at home. Almond Milk, Honey, Maple Syrup, Vanilla Extract, a and a blend of seasonal spices. I’ll assume you already have coffee too!

Before you start the recipe, make a Pumpkin Pie Spice mix!:

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp group cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground cloves
