Paleo Pumpkin Spice Latte
Fall is here! The weather is getting cooler, the comforting scents of fall spices fill coffee shops, and (you guessed it) the pumpkin spice latte craze is back.
But not so fast. Did you know that the store-bought pumpkin spice latte is full of inflammatory, artificial ingredients and outrageous amounts of sugar? “But, it’s so deliciousssss. Don’t rain on my basic-girl PSL parade!” Okay, don’t cry over your spilt PSL just yet. We understand that food is an emotional experience and should taste amazing! However, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health for it. And that’s what we’re all about here at Eat the 80.
So, we did the dirty, recipe-developing, taste-testing work for our foodies and scoped out the best-tasting, aromatic, locally roasted coffee beans from Opus Coffee to test out our recipe! We may have landed upon the most palate-pleasing, brain-boosting, inflammation-fighting, fall-flavors-all-up-in-your-taste-buds pumpkin spice latte ever! You can thank the key health ingredients in this latte for that. Coffee and pumpkin pie spice are packed with antioxidants; pumpkin is a great source of Vitamin A; and (the real MVP) coconut milk is packed with MCTs, which are healthy, brain-loving fats that quickly boost cognitive performance. Try this Eat the 80, paleo-approved pumpkin spice latte recipe if you’re ready to say sayonara to the conventional, low-quality PSL and get a daily dose of health in a cup instead!
