Pumpkin Vanilla Chai Latte

Pumpkin is actually quite good for you, it’s rich in fiber, Vitamin C and A, and so much more. Here are nine reasons why you’ll want to have some this fall. It’s easy to do that with a delicious homemade latte that even your children will love. And not to worry about dairy intolerance, this recipe uses almond milk.
 
Here is what you need:
2 Chai tea bags or 2 teaspoons loose leaf tea
1/2 cup boiling water
3/4 cup almond milk
1/3 cup pumpkin
1 tablespoon raw honey
1/4 cup strong coffee or espresso
1/2 teaspoon vanilla 

 

Optional:
Fresh nutmeg or cinnamon
Whipped cream or whipped coconut cream

 

Pour the boiling water over the tea bags and steep for 8 minutes. Heat almond milk and pumpkin to almost boiling. Remove from heat, add vanilla, espresso and honey. Mix well, add chai tea and pour into a large mug. 

 

Top with whipped cream and freshly grated nutmeg or cinnamon. Enjoy this hand warming yumminess that is good for you!

 

For children use decaf coffee or simple, skip it.
