I don’t know about you, but I love a good pumpkin spice latte. They are one of the most comforting winter drinks I’ve ever come across.
But when you buy them at a coffee shop, the amount of sugar (and even some chemicals) pretty much goes through the roof. So several years ago, I came up with a recipe for a homemade version that I have enjoyed for years. I posted it on my other blog and it’s been a very popular recipe over the years.
But now that I’m eating low carb and keto, I have found that my old favorite recipe needs a little tweaking. But I’m okay with that because these tweaks make it that much more delicious!
This recipe is for a regular coffee machine that uses paper filters. Do not try this with other types of machines as the spices can clog up the machine. That being said, if you do have a different sort of machine and you make this successfully, please feel free to share how you did it in comments below. I can only create recipes for the machine that I have.
Also, if you are looking for a pumpkin spice mix that doesn’t have sugar in it, you can make your own using this recipe (link will take you to my other blog). It’s what I use. I make a huge batch every year or two and use it whenever I make coffee. It’s delicious!
YOU MIGHT ALSO ENJOY:
- 4 cups water
- 2 tbsp. coffee grounds (decaf or regular)
- 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, no sugar added
- 1/4 cup milk (I sued unsweetened almond milk)
- stevia or low carb sweetener to taste
Put the water into your coffee machine as usual.
In the coffee basket, put coffee grounds and spices into your paper filter.
Brew coffee as usual and pour into mug.
Add milk (you can froth it first if you have a milk frother) and sweetener after brewing.
KETO OPTION: Before adding milk and sweetener, cool the coffee slightly and run your coffee through the blender with some coconut oil or butter (about 1 tbsp.) Add the milk and sweetener to the blender and blend a second time to mix well.
Serve with a tiny dash of pumpkin pie spice sprinkled over the top.
