Tis the season for the pumpkin spice beverage of choice. It’s that time of year when I add a little pumpkin into my morning routine. Instead of my usual Matcha Latte, today I got into the spirit of Autumn with this “Super Charged” Pumpkin Latte. Yes, I have a coffee on occassion – no judgement please. I add a strong shot of espresso to this along with XCT or coconut oil. XCT oil is a medium chain triglyceride and major metabolism booster – adding this is a great way to get a no crash energy boost. Fresh pumpkin and natural sweetener with pumpkin pie spice make this a divine drink any time of day (just not too late in the day or leave out the coffee and have it caffeine free).
