The healthy (turmeric) pumpkin spice latte! Perfect for a cozy fall mornings. And wayyyyy healthier than the Starbucks version, which is full of weird preservatives and lots of sugar (#nothanks). Other benefits? You can make this healthy PSL in your PJs and save yourself the $5… all while nourishing your body. ✌🏼
What’s In the Turmeric Pumpkin Spice Latte
I added turmeric to this healthy PSL because of its anti-inflammatory properties (and festive color!). Turmeric contains curcumin, a polyphenol that lowers the level of messaging molecules that trigger inflammation. Turmeric is also a liver cleanser so it’s detoxifying too!
Add a pinch of black pepper to the PSL to boost the bioavailability of turmeric. Black pepper increases the absorption of curcumin (the good stuff!) in your blood.
PUMPKIN PIE SPICE
Because #lazyhealthy is a thing, I prefer to use a spice mix instead of measuring out spices individually. You can find pumpkin pie spice at Trader Joe’s or my favorite organic one here.
I use unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk for this PSL. For an extra creamy treat, stir in some full-fat coconut milk or top the latte with a little coconut whipped cream.
