A Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte, without the Guilt!

The hubby has a cold, and brought PUMPKIN DONUTS home last night. Apparently, he felt the need for some "comfort food". They are REALLY good!  (I've had them before .... )

AND right now, I'm not going to have ONE.  NOPE.  Not going to do it!  (The struggle is real.)
BUT, I wanted something that would help satisfy that "pumpkin craving".  This Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte was SO good.  I mean, really good.  And, did just the trick. 
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte
(Modified from a recipe via Against All Grain)
*21 Day Fix-Approved*
1 cup brewed coffee
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp. local organic honey
2 tbsp. pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in saucepan over medium heat.  Simmer until hot.  Carefully transfer to a blender and cover the top with a towel.  Blend until thoroughly combined and foamy.  The blender really helps to create that foam we all love from our local favorite coffee shop! 
(21 Day Fixers: 1 yellow, 2 tsp. and a bit of a green [if you want to count that])
