Why You’ll Love This Pumpkin Spice Latte
This wholesome pumpkin spice latte is healthier and a whole lot cheaper than store-bought. It is guaranteed to please and won’t spike your blood sugar.
Ingredients To Make Pumpkin Spice Latte
- Espresso – Feel free to use decaf espresso.

- Pumpkin pie spice – I usually make my own mix but you can use store-bought. My recipe is below.
- Vanilla extract – I prefer to use real vanilla extract rather than imitation.
- Sea salt
- RX syrup, allulose syrup, or monk fruit syrup
- Optional: scoop vanilla protein powder or collagen
- Pumpkin Pie Spice: ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice
Equipment For Pumpkin Spice Latte
Nothing fancy is required to make this latte.
