Pumpkin Spice Lattes are a must have during the Halloween season! However, with the amount of whipped cream, steamed milk and artificial pumpkin flavours all packed into one cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte, your body won’t be too happy about this sugar overload.

However, there’s a much healthier way to treat yourself to a Pumpkin Spice Latte without the health sacrifices! How? Well, we’ve published our very own Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe below for you to try out! (Keep scrolling!)

The difference between most Pumpkin Spice Latte recipes and our own one is that we’ve really narrowed down the list of ingredients that should be in a Pumpkin Spice Latte – which is, coffee and pumpkin.

Not only that, we’ve substituted sugar with honey! Honey is a natural sweetener which contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and antibacterial properties. This’ll help strengthen your immune system and regulate your blood sugar levels.
