Enjoy a mug of this homemade Sugar Free Pumpkin Spice Latte in a matter of minutes in your own kitchen. This easy coffee drink will save money and time and satisfy your sweet tooth.
Now that pumpkin spice season is here, I have enjoyed a few too many drinks at our local coffee shop. I'm all for supporting businesses, but I need to conserve my time and money when buying a cup of Joe every few days. Is anyone else with me?
Enter in my homemade pumpkin spice latte. With just a few ingredients, you can be sipping your own healthy latte in minutes. The best part is that you can stay in your pajamas or workout clothes, and no one will ever know.
Since fall weather will not be coming soon here in Florida, I have been keeping my house at a chilly temperature in the morning to sip my pumpkin latte. As long as it is cool in the house and I look at the pumpkin decorations, I can trick myself into believing fall has arrived.
But then I go outside and realize the heat and humidity are still very much here. Until then, the thermostat is set low, the slippers and flannel pajamas are on, and the pumpkin spice lattes are still happening.
A few weeks ago, I shared my trip to Maryland and some fun facts about soybeans. We learned so much about soy and how healthy it is for you from the nutritionist on the trip with us.
Health Benefits of Soy
Soy foods are good for you because they are rich in many nutrients such as protein, B vitamins, fiber, and calcium. Soybeans are cholesterol-free and low in saturated fats, making them a great addition to your diet.
Did you know that soy protein is a complete protein? That's right. It contains all the essential amino acids your body cannot make alone. It also contains healthy fats that our body needs as well. This little bean is a powerhouse when it comes to nutrition.
The natural chemicals in soybeans do not affect our bodies the same way estrogen does. Actually, studies suggest that drinking a cup of soy milk a day could reduce your risk for breast cancer.
How to include Soy in your Diet
There are so many different ways that you can include soy in your diet. Soy milk is delicious when used in soups, smoothies, and coffee.
You can enjoy soy nuts for a great protein-packed snack. Edamame can be added to different types of salads. Our favorite is this Asian chicken salad.
And tofu can be added to chocolate pudding, smoothies, stir fries, dips, or chili.
I have a background of medical issues and cancer in my family history, so I have been incorporating soy milk into the recipes that I have been making to get the added nutrition and benefits.
One of my favorite ways to use it is in my daily coffee because it froths well and creates a thick foam layer for my homemade lattes.
Plus, it only has 100 calories in each cup and also has 8 grams of protein. This daily cup of coffee is helping me stay away from all those desserts I have in my kitchen.
How to make a Sugar Free Pumpkin Spice Latte
- Whisk together the pumpkin puree, spices, and soy milk in a small saucepan over low-medium heat until heated. Pro Tip: Make sure you use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie mix because the mix has added sugars and spices.
- Brew some extra strong coffee or make an espresso. Pour the coffee into a mug and stir in the sugar-free vanilla syrup.
- Once the milk and pumpkin have been heated to below boiling, remove the pan. Pour a little more than half the milk mixture into the coffee. Pro Tip: You can pour the milk through a fine mesh strainer to remove the excess pumpkin if you do not want it in the bottom of your coffee.
- Froth the remaining milk until it becomes a thick foam. Spoon this on top of the coffee gently.
- Top with sugar-free Cool Whip or Rediwhip and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, and enjoy.
How to Froth Milk
- Use a mason jar. Pour the steamed milk into the jar, screw the lid on tight, and shake until the milk is frothy and foamed.
- A whisk or mixer can also be used to froth the milk into little bubbles.
- A small frothing wand will whisk and swirl until it creates a nice foam in your heated milk. It’s small, and it won’t take up much room in your kitchen utensil drawer. Plus, it’s great for whisking cream or soy milk for hot cocoa.
- You can also pour the warmed milk into a blender. Make sure the lid is tight and hold it as you pulse the milk.
Make it Your Own
If you like to experiment with your coffee flavors, try different syrups in the coffee and toppings on the foam. Here are some of my favorites.
- Sugar-free chocolate syrup and sugar-free hot chocolate mix
- Sugar-free salted caramel syrup and pumpkin pie spice
- Cinnamon Syrup
