Pumpkin Spiced Coffee

Before you start crackin' jokes about how much "white girls" love pumpkin spiced things... or how many "basic bitches" there are out there who won't stop raving about pumpkin spiced lattes from Starbucks.. Let me just say that pumpkin spice is for everyone! And if you don't agree then kindly shut your mouth. 

k thx.

On that same note however, STOP going to cafes and getting pumpkin spiced lattes! They don't even have pumpkin in them and have roughly 50g of processed sugar for a medium (16oz) latte.. Yikes! Not to mention the crazy amount unpronounceable ingredients hidden within that "pumpkin" drink. 

This recipe makes about 2-3 medium sized coffees and tastes great, has no artificial crap in it, has good fats that will fuel your body and prevent blood sugar levels from spiking, and REAL pumpkin. 

ATTENTION: Enjoy while wearing a scarf and a comfy baggy sweater for the ultimate "basic bitch" experience.

  1. Darian I am just now reading your blog (I don't know why I haven't sooner) and it's amazing and I especially love this post. I am also going to try making this because I also detest the ultra-sweetened crap coffees that are out there. Although I think Monogram has an unsweetened one, Sutik and I got some once and they tasted a lot different than the one Sbux purveys. xx Anne
