Fall is here and you know what that means…Pumpkin spiced everything! Tea, pies, cake, and of course, lattes and COFFEE!
Last year the “Foodbabe” was ranting about how Starbucks pumpkin spiced products were unhealthy and littered with chemicals so its no longer questionable if a simple black pumpkin spice coffee is healthy.
The largest problem with most pumpkin spiced food is that they are flavors and rather than being “spiced” they are artificially coated to give that pumpkin taste.
Do it yourself ensures that you stay away or at least minimize the exposure from contaminated foods that are leached with chemicals and artificial additives. Okay, I’ll stop now so you can go enjoy your HEALTHY PUMPKIN SPICED COFFEE!
First, there are premade pumpkin spiced (pumpkin pie spice) mixes that you can go out and buy to make your coffee. This recipe offers you the opportunity to change things, as you like or dislike.
5 Cups of Filtered Water
5 Scoops of Organic Ground Coffee Benas
½ tsp Cinnamon
¼ tsp Nutmeg or Allspice
1/8 tsp Ginger
1/8 tsp Cloves or 1/16 tsp
First, blend the pumpkin spice together so that the mixture is even. Next, grind up your coffee beans. Mix the coffee beans with the spices. Place into the coffee maker and brew as if it were a regular cup of joe!
Happy Fall! With this recipe, try out the right blend that you enjoy.
