With the leaves changing and the sun setting earlier, it is starting to feel like fall. During this change in season, we have found that people are in search of recipes that warm the soul.

For the next 3 weeks we will be doing a recipe series where we will share some of our healthy soul-warming recipes so you can get that comfort food feeling without the guilt.

We are going to kick off the series with our take on a Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte. This recipe has less sugar than your conventional Pumpkin Spice Latte, and it is so heartwarming. Honestly, there is nothing better than curling up to a warm beverage on a chilly day.


– 1 shot espresso or 1/2 cup regular coffee (this is optional, this recipe doesn’t need coffee)
– 1.5 t canned pumpkin purée
– 1/2 t pumpkin spice mix (recipe included below)
– 2 t maple syrup
– 1 cup steamed Vanilla Nutpods

Pumpkin Spice mix:

– 1 t cinnamon
– 1/4 t nutmeg
– 1/4 t ground ginger
– 1/8 t ground cloves


  1. Mix 1 shot of espresso or 1/2 cup regular coffee with steamed nutpods, pumpkin purée, pumpkin spice mix, and maple syrup all together. Then top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy!


Don’t forget to let us know what you think!
