Have you ever felt left out? Or watched the cool kids do something you can’t do? That’s how I’ve felt for the last several years watching everyone flash their Pumpkin Spice all over social media. I often wondered what I’m missing out on and if it’s really as good as everyone says it is.
Well, it is. They are all correct. And now I’m one of the cool kids!
One of the reasons I hadn’t tried the PSL yet is that I try not to consume any caffeine. But then I became a HUGE fan of the Detoxinista blog and she posted her PSL recipe and when I read that I could make it caffeine-free, I was so excited! I based this recipe on hers.
Confession: as I make this today to try it out, it’s 88F outside. Not really Pumpkin Spice weather! But I made almond milk this morning and Sundays are the days I get to hole up in my kitchen and meal prep and test recipes. Plus, in another month when it’s chilly out and we have a roaring fire going, I will cuddle up on the sofa with this in hand and I’ll be a happy pumpkin-spice filled gal!
I made it with 1-cup almond milk and no coffee. You can use 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup coffee or 1-cup coffee. It’s entirely up to you and your preference. And blending it in the cooking blender while it heats creates this super smooth and frothy decliciousness.
Here are the directions to make your own PSL in the Deluxe Cooking Blender!
Pumpkin Spice Latte
1/2 cup almond milk (mine was unsweeteend)
1/2 cup brewed coffee
1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon almond butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for garnish
- Pour the almond milk and coffee into the Deluxe Cooking Blender.
- Add the pumpkin puree, almond butter, maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice.
- Secure the lid and turn the wheel to select CUSTOM HEAT. Adjust the temperature to 150F and press the wheel to confirm. Adjust the wheel to select 3:00 cook time and press the wheel to confirm and start.
- When the blending cycle is complete, remove the lid and pour into a mug. Sprinkle additional pumpkin pie spice on top.
