How to Make Your Pumpkin Spice Latte Sugar-Free & Metabolism Boosting
There's a lot of reasons to look forward to Fall: cooler weather, cozy cardigans, and most importantly - Pumpkin Spice Season! With most food & drink companies creating a pumpkin flavor of their own, it's important to be aware of what's really in these creations! Most are full of artificial flavoring, coloring and sugar to achieve the perfect sweet and savory mix. That's why we put together a cozy clean recipe for the ultimate healthy pumpkin spice latte! Not only does this latte deliver the delicious pumpkin spice flavor we crave this season - it also is sugar-free, gut-healing and metabolism boosting thanks to one natural booster - Coconut Oil!
Sure, we all love the infamous Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte as an easy grab on-the-go for some comfort on your morning commute. But did you know it contains 64 grams of sugar? Thats almost 12 teaspoons of sugar! White sugar is known to accelerate aging, increase blood sugar, increase inflammation & skin irritation, and cause poor dental health (which effects your overall health!). That amount of sugar is not only seriously bad for your body but also causes a major energy crash!
Lucky for you, there's ways to remake this infamous latte in a more healthy, deliciously nutritious way! Our CoCo Pumpkin Spice Latte is bursting with benefits thanks to the medium chain triglycerides (MCT) naturally found in Conscious Coconut Oil. Some benefits of MCT's are sustainable all-day energy, gut healing properties, help control blood sugar levels and boost your metabolism. If you're following a keto diet, you know MCT oil is a great source of added fats to boost your body's level of ketosis to achieve better results. Coconut Oil is a natural drink booster for all of your essentials: coffee, tea, matcha or smoothies!
