Pumpkin Spice Latte (with a healthy twist!)

You can’t resist pumpkin spice lattes this time of year! But I’m always hesitant to buy them at a coffee shop – even in decaf – because who knows what they put in it (often fake syrupy flavorings). I love making this because I know what EXACTLY goes in it and I feel good about it.

Chaga mushrooms are health-full.  They are anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and support healthy white blood cell production.  They also cleanse the thyroid of toxins and nourish optimal function.  I’ve tried a few brands and although more expensive, Vimergy Chaga dissolves and has a high energy frequency.  Chaga tea tastes a lot like coffee so it’s a perfect healthy substitute!

Ingredients:

4 oz of hot – but not boiling – water
1 tsp Vimergy Chaga powder
1/2 to 3/4 cup cup non-dairy beverage – like So Delicious coconut creamer
3 T organic pumpkin puree
2 tsp maple syrup or real raw honey
a dash of pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp vanilla powder (Natural Zing)

Garnish:  whip some canned coconut milk, or look for a healthy whipped topping.

Directions:

Blend all ingredients in a blender; blend until well mixed.  Be careful when blending hot liquids that the lid is on securely.  I usually leave the center ring propped open just a little bit to vent.  BE SURE that you start it on the lowest setting.  Pour and enjoy!!!
