Recipe of the Week 9/6: Low Carb/Sugar Pumpkin Spice Latte

Yields 1 Serving 


2 fl oz brewed espresso or 4 fl oz strong coffee 

6 fl oz. unsweetened milk of choice. 

2 Tbsp pumpkin puree 

¼ tsp vanilla extract 

¼ tsp almond extract 

¼ tsp ground nutmeg 

¼ tsp ground cinnamon 

1-2 tsp stevia or monkfruit sweetener 

Low sugar whipped cream optional 

Additional ground cinnamon for topping optional 


If you have an espresso maker 

Brew a shot of espresso per your machine’s instructions into a large coffee cup. If you have a standard coffee pot 

Brew 4 fl oz of coffee as you normally would into a large coffee cup, except use double the amount of coffee grounds. (For example, if you typically use 2 Tbsp of coffee to brew a cup, use 4 Tbsp here.) 

While your espresso or coffee brews: 

Add your milk to a microwave safe 16 fl oz or larger glass cup or jar. Heat the milk in the microwave for 90 seconds. 

Once heated, add the pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, almond extract, ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon, and sweetener to the milk. Using a milk frother, froth the milk until it is almost double in volume. 

Pour your frothed milk mixture into the brewed espresso or coffee. Top with whipped cream and some additional cinnamon and enjoy!
