Pumpkin Spice Latte – Bulletproof Version
In the event that the drop in temperature and sudden omnipresence of pumpkin in your Instagram feed didn’t educate you, enable me to formally welcome you to fall. Ok, the period of comfortable sweaters, hot showers, fresh breezes, and…PSL everything. The pumpkin-spiced drink is the subject nourishment of the season, showing up in sans dairy half and half, antiperspirant (!!), and, obviously, Starbucks’ mark latte.
However, I pondered—might I be able to make a healthier version? Some way or another, in an ocean of sugar syrups and fake flavors, the genuine embodiment of the pumpkin zest latte had been lost. Be that as it may, at its center, stripped down, a PSL is a truly sound beverage.
Zest? One of the world’s first superfoods.
Pumpkin? A fiber-filled, prebiotic, gut-mending natural product.
Espresso has even been connected to its own medical advantages, including expanded life span.
I went for a Bulletproof-ish rendition, including some grass-sustained margarine (you can sub ghee or discard) and utilizing coconut drain in lieu of customary coconut oil for an all the more entire sustenances latte feel, while keeping up the majority of the solid, glucose adjusting fats.
The outcome? A fiber-and solid fat-filled beverage that takes seconds to make and will keep you full till lunch (or supper, in the event that you utilize it as an evening nibble—simply be watchful of the caffeine, or do the sans caffeine variant, underneath).
Additionally, it has an aftertaste like an ideal day of leaf-peeping and apple-picking in a glass, with a delicate sweetness, and an unobtrusive pumpkin pie enhance merging with the rich, marginally intense espresso.
Hi, fall, old companion. I think we’ll get along fine and dandy this year.
