Pumpkin Spice Lattes are ever so popular these days but after having a few it can start eating into your holiday budget.
So after experimenting on a few different concoctions I think I have found a great copy-cat recipe that is fast, easy and tasty. Also, depending on which options you choose, this is a great weight watcher and/or “skinny”recipe.
Go ahead and try it out, use different types of milk or sweeteners…make it your own PSL!
Ingredients For 1 Serving:
3/4 cup Non-Fat Milk
1 Tbsp Pumpkin butter (is used Trader Joe’s- I love that place)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Sugar (or a packet of Splenda or Stevia)
1or2 Shots Espresso (or if you prefer 1/4 cup strong brewed coffee)
Extras: -Some fat free whipped Cream
-dash of pumpkin pie spice/cinnamon stick for topping
In a small sauce pan, combine milk, sugar and pumpkin butter at medium heat. Stir, and heat until boiling.
Remove from heat, and add in vanilla. Blend until smooth by using an immersion blender . (you can use a whisk, however those immersion blender work so well)
Pour the mixture into your favorite mug, and then top with the espresso/coffee. Top it all off with the whipped topping, a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice and a cinnamon stick (if you want to get fancy)!
