Date-Sweetened Pumpkin Spice Latte
An easy, delicious and healthy version of the popular pumpkin spice latte. This comforting drink is sweetened with dates and made milk-free thanks to cashews. Best of all? It's done in under 5 minutes.
- 2 cups brewed coffee
- 1/4 cup raw cashews
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
- 1/8 teaspoon ginger, ground
- Pinch each of ground nutmeg and clove
- 1-2 Medjool dates, pitted (or maple syrup to taste)
Prepare your coffee with your method of choice.
In a high-speed blender, add the remaining ingredients, along with the prepared coffee. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth and frothy. Serve immediately.
If you don't have a strong blender, there may be pieces of dates or cashews left in the latte. If this is the case, you can strain it using a fine mesh sieve or nut milk bag. This shouldn't be an issue with a good high-speed blender.
Note that this latte is not overly sweet. One date makes it lightly sweet, which is perfect to my taste, but if you have a bigger sweet tooth, I recommend using 2 dates or maple syrup to taste.
