Pumpkin Spiced Latte
Back by popular demand as it has been since it’s debut in 2014 PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE is coming out earlier than it has been in the past. It came back on Tuesday, August 28, 2018! Summer isn’t technically over but according to online anticipation and excitement which is trending, it continues to grow daily and everyone is crazy excited!
I had Pumpkin Spice Latte when they first came out and each time only able to get through half of it before I started feeling awful. I got a sugar rush immediately followed by the big drop in my energy and a dull throbbing headache. I had to stop drinking them because of the way it made me feel. Why was such a fun and delicious happy drink doing this to me?
I LOVE Pumpkin Spice Latte but I discovered that I can not process sugar that well! I’m a cancer survivor and cancer feeds on sugar. Sugar also is the worst thing you could do for brain health. Studies show how sugar affects the brain and is a factor in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
I came up with a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Latte that does not use processed sugar. I sweeten mine with Stevia, approved by researchers and nutritionist. Stevia is a substance taken from a plant that is natural and used to make food taste sweet.
You can enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Latte and not worry about processed sugar! Please give this latte a try!
The cupcake featured in the photo pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting is from the dessert section in my cookbook, “Food for Thought” all healthy and no processed sugar!
