10 Seasonal Coffee Recipes
1. Pumpkin Spiced Latte
Oh, PSL… One of the most anticipated seasonal coffees! While pumpkin spice lattes can be quite high in sugar from syrups, take a nutritional spin on that beloved coffee drink this upcoming fall season. Start by whisking a half cup of nonfat milk with one tablespoon of pumpkin puree over medium heat in a small pot. Continue to mix and add in a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger for flavor depth. Once the mixture becomes frothy, pour over freshly brewed coffee and serve.
2. Chocolate Mocha
In a small sauce pan or microwavable-safe mug, heat a half cup of milk until hot. Add in a half cup of freshly brewed coffee, two tablespoons cocoa powder, one tablespoon of Stevia or sweetener of choice, and ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract, mixing until all ingredients are fully dissolved. Pour into your favorite hot cocoa mug and enjoy!
3. Peppermint Chocolate Mocha
For a minty and refreshing twist on the chocolate mocha, heat up a half cup of milk on the stove over low heat in a small saucepan. Add two tablespoons of cocoa powder and a drop of peppermint oil or to desired strength, gently stirring until well-incorporated. Add milk mixture to a ½ cup of freshly brewed coffee in your favorite mug. Garnish with a light dollop of whipped cream and a light sprinkle of crushed peppermint as desired.
