Pumpkin Spice Latte

How’re your Mondays going so far?

Mine’s a little slow, but that’s a good thing! It’s always nice to have a day where you can just do what you want because we have some free time. We shouldn’t feel guilty for “wasting time” when we’re relaxing and passing the day by feeling happy!

My day so far:

Slept in late, and had a nice yoga session upon waking up. I’m still feeling that hike from the other day, so it was nice to stretch so much.

Then, breakfast, including this:

A Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte!

2 heaping tbsp canned pumpkin

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ground cloves

pinch of allspice

sweetener to taste

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup almond milk (or other milk)


Mix all the ingredients except the coffee in your coffee cup. Add the hot coffee and… Drink up!

Starbucks doesn’t hold a candle. Trust me. Plus mine doesn’t cost $4. Or 400 calories. Not even close.

Anyways, I’m off to enjoy the rest of my day… probably a little boxing to expend some energy, and I’m thinking tonight is a good night to light a fire and snuggle up with a good book. Or my Free People catalogue :)

And a decaf Pumpkin Spice.

Happy Monday!

    Just a thought…you could keep this made in a squirt bottle in the fridge and only take out all the ingredients once a week or two. I am soooo making this…now.
