Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice Latte ... it's Keto / Low Carb


How about whipping up this delicious latte. The coffee and pumpkin spice almost seem to wrap your senses in a big warm hug. A perfect Autumn, Fall or anytime drink - and so easy, it will make you smile. 

Ingredients
Serves One
1 oz. unsalted butter
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp instant coffee powder

1 cup boiling water
Method
1. Place butter, spices and instant coffee in a deep bowl to use with an immersion blender. Alternatively, you can put the ingredients directly into the jar of a blender.
2. Add boiling water and blend for 20–30 seconds until a fine foam has formed.
3. Pour into a cup and sprinkle some cinnamon or pumpkin spice on top. Serve immediately!

4. It's even more delicious with a dollop of whipped heavy (double) cream on top.
Tip
The instant coffee can be replaced with a shot of espresso; just add less of the hot water. The latte can also be made coffee and caffeine free. The butter and pumpkin spice gives it a wonderfully rich flavour, so whether you go with "high octane" coffee, or decaf – this could well become your go-to drink this Autumn.


Low Carb Pumpkin Spice 
Ingredients
3 tbsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp ground allspice
Method
1. Mix the spices well and put in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
2. If you have whole spices on hand you can grind them using a spice or coffee grinder.
3. Remember that the spices should be kept in a dark, dry and cool place. You can use small tin containers for storage.

4. Make a large batch of seasoning for use within the next 4–6 months. After this time, the spices may lose some heat, flavour and colour. They will still be safe to use, but perhaps not as flavourful.

I don't think we get pumpkin spice here - or I haven't seen it anyway.
Despite loving pumpkin I have never had a pumpkin pie.

I'm not sure whether I like the idea of having butter in my coffee. Usually I have one pumpkin spice latte a year, and that's it. It's to welcome fall in all its splendor - and after that I'm perfectly content to wait another year. (and darn, this year I haven't had one so far! maybe because it's still quite hot here).

I like pumpkin pie... but I've never seen much point in pumpkin spice lattes.

I was wondering what's pumpkin spice? until I saw the list of store cupboard dry ingredients that can be mixed up to make it. I would leave out cloves which I don't like and also the butter. interesting recipe. Best wishes, Linda.

Hello Dora and thanks for your comment.
You can make dairy free lattes using either soy, almond, or hemp milk.
These three seem to be best dairy milk alternatives for your latte.
