nutrition recipes Oct 19, 2022
Nothing says fall like PUMPKIN! So we've created a creamy, rich, and delicious latte, perfect for a chilly fall day.
 
 Packed with healthy fats, and no added sugar, this is a quick and easy way to enjoy a restaurant-style coffee drink at home.

Below is the video for the latte base, and then you'll add the pumpkin fixings listed below the video.
 
Here's what you'll need for part one (outlined in video):
