🎃 Happy Fall everyone!!! It’s pumpkin time!! 🎃
Did you do the happy dance when Starbuck’s started making their pumpkin lattes again, too? I am afraid that I geek out about that kind of crap. Hahaha. It doesn’t feel like the season has begun until I have had at least one grande soy pumpkin latte.
I just love pumpkin. However, if I’m being honest, every time I have one of those lattes, a small voice in my head starts screaming at me. That yummy, sugary autumnal flavor can’t be THAT good for me. So much sugar! Oh, and is that pumpkin flavor even real?!? I’m thinking’ “NO.” Ugh. But, I love it so much! So, I decided to make it at home and reap some serious health benefits.
What I love about this little treat is that it packs a serious health benefit wallop on top of all it’s flavor. Seriously! Not only is coffee by itself loaded with antioxidants and anxiety-reducing power, but pumpkin may shock the heck out of ya. It is a power hitter when it comes to stabilizing blood pressure, preventing cancer, improving eyesight, and soooo much more! You can read all about it on the Daily Burn.
With all that goodness, I know that I want to say “no thank you” to artificial pumpkin flavor. Thanks to Libby’s, adding some of this miracle food to your daily Fall routine is so dang easy!
Simply mix a tablespoon of Libby’s pumpkin puree straight out of the can with a tablespoon of condensed milk and a cup of coffee. If you want to cut the sugar and dairy, you can substitute soy milk or almond milk with ease. In fact, you should totally try our homemade almond milk recipe!
If you want more Fall in your mouth, go ahead and sprinkle your pumpkin latte with some cinnamon for flavor which in turn helps with lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure! Gosh, food is so awesome. It is literally medicine for your body! We hope you can join us for GROUNDED:SLO 10.29.2017 to learn more about natural health and enjoy some serious autumnal beauty at the gorgeous See Canyon Fruit Ranch.

Bon apetit for good health this season!
