Pumpkin spice latte is the stereotypical fall beverage. It's full of warming spices, which makes it the perfect way to enjoy cooler weather. But what if you want to enjoy your favorite drink without the guilt? Well, you're in luck! Our pumpkin spice flavored coffee is super healthy and will remind you of the cozy fall weather!
Is your pumpkin spice latte healthy?
Pumpkin spice lattes are a popular autumn beverage, but pumpkin spice lattes made by average coffee shops aren't necessarily healthy. They're high in sugar and calories, but there's one more thing you should know: the ingredients list on most pumpkin spice latte recipes includes corn syrup. This is usually one of the first ingredients on the list for a reason—it's used to sweeten the drink and prevent it from freezing solid when you add ice (a common practice at coffee shops).
Blackout Coffee flavored blends are made with premium specialty grade beans and roasted to perfection for a smooth tasting coffee cup.
Traditional PSL Nutrition Facts
For the most part, PSLs are high in calories and relatively low in protein. But before you run to the nearest coffee shop to order one, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, most PSLs are made with milk or non-dairy milk substitutes like soy milk. Milk is a source of saturated fat, which can raise your cholesterol levels if consumed at high quantities. Additionally, non-dairy milks often contain added sugars that contribute to the calorie count of your drink—not exactly what you want when trying to stick within your daily calorie limit!
For example: A grande PSL from Blackout Pumpkin Spice Coffee boasts 100% arabica beans, No calories and sugar as well as 110% gluten free. If you're looking for something healthier but still flavored like pumpkin spice, Checkout Blackout Pumpkin Spice Flavored Coffee

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Latte at home
1 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond milk)
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice mix (or 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and ½ teaspoon ground ginger)
Heat the milk in a saucepan until it’s hot. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients until well combined. Pour into a mug (or small pitcher), top with whipped cream or marshmallows if desired and enjoy! This recipe makes one serving at 8 grams of carbs per serving.* How long will this latte keep? Milk spoils after two days so if you want to make this the night before or serve it at your holiday party then just make sure you separate out some plain coffee to add when you warm up your coffee!
