Pumpkin Spice Latte – Protein Style

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Okay I just need to say it again: I ADORE PUMPKIN! Literally these days everything I eat contains pumpkin. So why not also my drink? Let me show you in this recipe how you can make a delicious pumpkin spice latte for yourself. 

So, since I don’t really drink coffee I am always looking for other yummy alternatives that I can enjoy in the morning. Usually I drink tea, but in the fall pumpkin is just way too yummy to not make a delicious, creamy drink with it. That is why I came up with my own favorite pumpkin spice latte recipe. 

You know what really surprises me? They also have a ton of pumpkin here in Costa Rica. I have seen everything from a Hokaido pumpkin to Muscat to butternut squash! So happy about this because it means I don’t have to miss out on more awesome fall food the next weeks!

Regarding your choice of protein you can either make this pumpkin spice latte totally vegan by using rice/pea or sunflower protein. Of course you can also use whey protein. Here I recommend the flavors cookies & cream as well as plain vanilla. 

The recipe

So for this special pumpkin photoshoot I made a super fancy dark chocolate decoration around the jar. You don’t need that though really. I just thought it looks cool 🙂
