REAL Chai Pumpkin Spice Latte

‘Tis that time of year folks! Pumpkin. Spice. Latte time!

I remember the days of PSL overload! I wasn’t concerned if there was even a drop of real pumpkin in my takeout cup. Heck, I didn’t even like real pumpkin, as long as it was topped with whipped cream and was sugary sweet, I was a happy girl!

Now? I’m a little more fussy and have actually developed a taste for pumpkin!  The beautiful part of this chai pumpkin spice latte is not only the wonderful pumpkin spice flavor, but also the frothiness that comes with using a blender and not a fancy, expensive machine. I legit just toss all the ingredients into my magic bullet and twirl it away. The result is barista quality frothy goodness. Trust me, you’ll want to skip the barista PSL – made with syrups and artificial flavors and make this daily!

A couple of notes:

*I add collagen to my tea daily. Collagen imparts no flavor but is SO good for my hair, skin, nails and connective tissue. I use this collagen because it comes from grassfed bovine. 

*I like to make my own pumpkin puree that I freeze and have at my disposal all winter. It’s super easy to make. I roast a few pumpkins in the oven until soft, scoop out the seeds (and toss or roast) then add the flesh to my Blendtec with a bit of water. I twirl this around until smooth and pour into ice-cube trays. Once frozen, I store these in a freezer bag.
