Iced Pumpkin Latte with Coconut Whipped Cream

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Another colllllld refreshing recipe! I love coffee, but I have been somewhat regretting pouring myself steaming cup while it is crazy hot outside. I didn't want to spend $3-$5+ iced beverage at a coffee shop, so I have been making my own and it doesn't take much time at all!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk / nondairy milk 
  • 1/4 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin / pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) 
  • 2-3 tsp xylitol (or you could use maple syrup/agave/coconut nectar...etc)
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie filling
  • optional: coffee ice cubes (brewed coffee poured and frozen in an icecube tray)
  • optional: Coconut Milk Whipped Cream (to plop on top of your latte!) (instructions below)
  • optional: I added a 1/2 tbs of vegan chocolate chips in one of my latte batches.. it was yummy but certainly not needed. :}

Directions: Add the milk, coffee, pumpkin, xylitol, spices and icecubes in a blender and blend well. Pour into a glass, add extra icecubes if you wish, and add some whipped cream on top, if you ended up making some. You can store any leftover latte in the fridge for a couple of days. Yum yum.

Amahzing Coconut Milk Whipped Cream!:

For the Whipped Cream, place a can of full fat Coconut Milk in the fridge overnight. Open up the can and scoop out of thick top layer, leaving the liquid at the bottom. Place the thick coconut milk in a blender, along with some vanilla extract and 1-2 packets of xylitol (or your choice of sweetener) and blenddddd until whipped. Then I like to place it in the fridge for 30 minutes or so to set it and then it is the most delicious whipped cream ever! 

I like drinking these out of a mason jar and a large glass straw. 

Want it hot?  - Just omit the ice cubes and warm it up in a pot after everything is blended if it isn't hot enough. The whipped cream probably tastes even better with the hot latte.

      LOL, I was wondering about that! Your ingredients contradict each other! Don't worry, it's easily done - I have done this with a few of my recipes too! Voted anyway, it looks amazing. I will try this, as I don't really want hot drinks in this weather either.
