Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte (Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program)

   I was excited to receive two bags of Godiva Coffee’s latest seasonal flavors just in time for fall.  Thanks to the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program, I was given the coffee to create a special fall-inspired coffee recipe!  The two flavors I received were Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Pecan Bark.  I immediately though of one of my favorite fall drinks; a pumpkin spice latte!

   Whenever I think of fall I think of apples and pumpkins.  I generally begin buying the pumpkin spice lattes when they come out in September and keep on getting them until they are gone in December.  I couldn’t wait to try making one for myself.  I first brewed a cup of the pumpkin spice coffee to get a taste for it.  It has a mild pumpkin flavor sprinkled with spices.  It was great all on it’s own!

    When I started creating I knew I would be making these throughout the fall so I went with a “skinny” pumpkin spice latte.  I used skim milk, fat free whipped cream, and sugar free caramel sauce.  It tasted amazing!  The latte was silky smooth and tasted like pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.  The caramel gave it just a touch of sweetness.  I gave it a generous topping of fat free whipped cream, topped the cream with caramel sauce, and sprinkled the whole thing with pumpkin pie spice.  It was out of this world! 

Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte (a Hezzi-D original)
3/4 c. skim milk
3/4 c. Godiva Pumpkin Spice coffee, brewed strong
1 t. canned pumpkin
2 t. caramel sauce
1 t. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water)
For the topping:
Fat Free whipped cream (in the spray can)
Smucker’s sugar free caramel sauce

pumpkin pie spice
1.  In a saucepan heat the milk, caramel sauce, and simple syrup until it begins to steam.  Do not boil it!  Remove from heat and pour into a coffee mug.
2.  Add in the canned pumpkin and stir until it is combined.  Pour in the strong Godiva Pumpkin Spice coffee and stir to combine.

3.  Top with a generous amount of the whipped cream, drizzle with caramel sauce, and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.  Enjoy!

    Thank you for sharing. This sounds WONDERFUL. I just bought some pumpkin spice coffee from Trader Joes. I love it. If you have a trader joes near you, it’s a must for you to get it.

    Now, I will need to try to make your latte. I am a healthy nut that I am glad you made it skinny.

    Have a blessed day!
