Deliciously Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe (Dairy + Sugar Free)

Deliciously Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

It’s not officially fall until you’ve had your first Pumpkin Spice Latte.

But did you know everyone’s favourite PSL actually contains 50 grams of sugar in a grande?

50 grams of sugar = ¼ cup of sugar.

¼ cup.

Why is Sugar So Bad for Me?

Little reminder about refined sugar…

  • Contains zero nutritional value
  • Highly inflammatory (bad news for acne)
  • Stresses the liver and can cause non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Increases bad cholesterol
  • Derails hormones
  • Impacts mental health and brain function
  • Increases your risk of heart disease
  • Changes the microbiome in your stomach and increases “leaky gut”
  • Increases your risk of type 2 diabetes

Just a few reasons to be avoiding it at all costs.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in festive drinks! You can create your own Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte with just a few ingredients that are…

A. Way healthier.

B. Nutrient dense.

C. Super yummy.

D. All of the above.

The answer here is D. 😉

6 Reasons to Eat More REAL Pumpkin

The keyword here is real. Not pumpkin flavoured syrup mixed into steamed milk.

Whether you’re roasting your own pumpkin or using a puree (just make sure it comes from a BPA-free lined can), this winter squash is full of delicious nutrients. Here are six reasons you’ll want to stock up on this orange beauty.

  1. Supports vision with its excellent amount of vitamin A.
  2. Boosts the immune system with its vitamin C content.
  3. Helps keep you regular with 4 grams of fibre per cup.
  4. Fibre also helps keep you feeling full for longer, thus reducing your need to snack – aka reduction in weight.
  5. Full of the cancer-protective antioxidant, beta-carotene.
  6. That same antioxidant helps protect the skin and keep wrinkles at bay. 

Quick Tips

  • Feel free to use your favourite non-dairy milk like almond, cashew, or coconut. Just remember to make sure it’s unsweetened and avoid soy.
  • I don’t drink coffee so I make this recipe with a little extra coconut milk instead of the added coffee. Tastes just as yummy!
  • Keep the extra pumpkin spice blend in a little mason jar to use for your favourite fall recipes.
  • I always add in some extra boosters like collagen powder, hemp hearts, and coconut oil. Feel free to add one, two or all of them.
  • To make a low glycemic version, substitute the honey or maple syrup with monk fruit extract (safe for diabetics!).
  • This pairs great with my Sweet & Salty Maca Bliss Balls!

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

"After a few months, my skin improved significantly."

Now my skin is completely blemish-free, I don’t even have to wear makeup. I don’t even break out around my cycle. I really owe it to Katie for her knowledge, and guidance during this clear skin journey. Thank you, Katie!!

"My scars and blemishes from the past continue to fade."

I'm grateful for the knowledge, strength and support to get current breakouts under control while my body continues to detox and heal.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
